NYC subway ad tells fentanyl users to ‘be empowered’ with tips for usage

Only the liberal mindset would tell deadly drug users to be proud of themselves and “empowered” for self-inflicting harm. “Don’t be ashamed that you are using” the poster in the New York City Subway system reads. It goes on to supportively say “be empowered the you are using safely.”

In a discussion of “what is fentanyl” and “why is it dangerous” as well as how to “prevent overdose” the poster gives horrendously dangerous and misguided advice which actually condones use of dangerous drugs.

The poster is sponsored by NYC Health, Mayor Eric Adams and the Health Commissioner. “Let’s prevent overdose” the bottom of the poster reads, stating”keeping yourself and your community safe” by shooting up dangerous drugs in what they deem a “safe” manner.

The poster specifically discusses fentanyl, the drug that is causing the largest number of overdose deaths in record levels. It is quite literally killing our youth. The dangerous drug is being smuggled into our southern border from Mexico, and primarily funded by China.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times more than morphine. The poster asks question “what is Fentanyl?” and remarks that “Fentanyl is a powerful opioid that can be found in heroin, cocaine, crack, methamphetamine, ketamine, and pressed pills.”

“Why is it Dangerous?” is next, followed by the answer “Fentanyl increases the risk of overdose especially among people who do not regularly use opioids.”

Under how to “prevent overdose” the information given is abhorrent. “Avoid using alone and take turns”

“Start with a small dose and go slowly”

“Have naloxone on hand”

“Avoid mixing drugs”

“Test your drugs using fentanyl test strips”

This is advice on how to harm and kill our citizens; not how to help them.

    The Mayor must have received campaign contributions from drug dealers, and this is how he thanks them!

    Another solid reason to sell New York back to the native Americans we bought it from…if they’re dumb enough to take it.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Otay Mesa Commercial Facility discovered $18 million dollars’ worth of methamphetamine hidden within a shipment of squash.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) revealed in a press release on Monday, at approximately 6:47 a.m.,that CBP officers encountered a 44-year-old male driving a commercial tractor-trailer with a shipment manifested for squash. The driver, a valid border crossing card holder, was referred for further examination by CBP officers along with the tractor-trailer and shipment.

Non-intrusive scanning technology was utilized to conduct a full scan of the tractor trailer which showed irregularities and CBP officers requested a CBP human and narcotics detection canine. The canine team responded and alerted officers to the presence of narcotics.

A total of 1,419 packages concealed within the shipment of squash was discovered and extracted. The narcotics were tested and identified as methamphetamine with a total weight of 11,469 pounds with an estimated street value of $18,350,400.

“Our officers’ commitment to duty, excellence, and the safety of our nation is truly commendable. These results serve as an outstanding display of effectiveness in thwarting the illegal importation of narcotics,” stated Rosa E. Hernandez, Otay Mesa Area Port Director. “Their exceptional efforts truly embody the highest standards of service.”

The seizures are part of Operation Apollo, a holistic counter-fentanyl effort that began on October 26, 2023 in southern California, and expanded to Arizona on April 10, 2024, the CBP release reveals. Operation Apollo focuses on intelligence collection and partnerships, and utilizes local CBP field assets augmented by federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to boost resources, increase collaboration, and target the smuggling of fentanyl into the United States.

The CDC states that more than 150 people die every day from drug overdoses related to synthetic opioids derived from fentanyl.
