Democrats have blocked a plan that would crack down on the deadly substance flowing almost exclusively from the United States-Mexico border into American communities.

But ban those killer AR-15s!

Serious question and save the snark.

WHY?

This seems like no-brainer legislation to me that should have bipartisan support.

I read the article.

What am I missing here? Yeah, I know... Pelosi this or someone else that, but this does not make sense - even for them.

Repeat after me,”Democrats are Marxist based and dedicated to the destruction of America” If you want America (and the rest of the world) to look like California, Illinois and New York then vote in the Marxists. Otherwise, toughen up!

Dumb republicans.

Could easily get this bill to pass by adding an amendment for another $15 billion to Ukraine to sweeten the deal.

MAYBE when a couple of their kids or grandkids die from Fentanyl, they will wake up.

Their real cash cow is the drug cartels themselves. The democrats are sold out to the drug king pins and narco governments.

no snark. understand the history and basis of communism. at the bottom they (from marx) set up a theoretical duality of good vs evil or not good (as they define good). the way they define it is designed to change as history approaches an ‘ideal.’

their answer to their concept of not good or evil is to kill it for it’s own good.

hopefully that explains it and their actions. the ‘democrats’ are nothing more than radical communists. they are good slaves of their system—just executing their view of destroying evil (i.e., us and anything that we have that gets in their way) of what i call their ‘continuing solution.’

anytime, anywhere communism has been instituted, to varying degree, this duality is formed and destruction commences.

Such a change would make it permanently illegal to sell fentanyl-related substances.

Sounds dumb on it's own. It is used both under direct medical care and as a prescription drug. The problem isn't with an anesthesiologist using it or with a cancer patient getting a precisely dosed patch. It's from some Mexican cartel selling random concentrations of it, often mixed with or replacing other drugs.

Making it a schedule I drug will affect CVS, not Juan selling it out of his trunk.

Fentanyl has legitimate medical uses.

Just saying.

From the DEA:

Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.

Maybe I missed it but my question is:

WHY are the Democommies blocking this?
Surely, they must have a “good” reason...

I had a colonoscopy in July. I was surprised when the anesthesiologist told me that I was getting fentanyl.

Just imagine if it were Russia, instead of China, using criminal gangs to smuggle highly lethal drugs into the USA that kill 100K Americans every year.

What would the response be?

I do recall when Robert Mueller accused “Putin’s Chef” of buying “$100K of facebook ads” in 2016. That investigation took 2 years and nearly took-down a President.

But 100K dead Americans? No biggie.

“This week, 220 House Democrats blocked consideration for Rep. Michelle Fischbach’s (R-MN) Halt All Lethal Trafficking of Fentanyl Act to permanently classify fentanyl-related substances as Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act.”

Hospitals use fentanyl all the time, re-scheduling it as Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act would make it illegal for them to use for any purpose, so I assume that was the major objection to this legislation.

True as well as a sociery based on the financialization of everything and the destruction of the production base as an integral part of this restructuring needs some sort of ‘Soma’ readily available. Men, like sheepdogs, have to have jobs to perform. Men without jobs (and without fathers) rot in viciousness.The woke communists and the financial manipulator class are happy to see basically white, straight, traditional, working class men be marginalized into poverty and drug dependency and anti-social disorder.This is all part of the program to turn much of white America into a bigger version of the black ghetto. A demoralized, debased and profoundly immoral cohort can easily be controlled. It is unbelievable to anyone who remembers the US in 1960 what has happened to us. The land of ‘the Lonely Crowd’, the ‘Organization Man’, ‘the Man in the Grey Flannel Suit’, and ‘complacency’ wasn’t paradise, but it was a far better place to live and grow up in than the post industrial nightmare culture we now have. The United States have become a bad place.
