The Chinese know…Americans love drugs.
The United States should look within to cut down demand for opioids which are fueling its deadly drug crisis rather than stressing unsubstantiated claims that China is the major source of these chemicals, a top Chinese drug enforcement official said Thursday.
Basically the Chinese view is America’s loser junkie drug addicts aren’t their problem. Of course they are correct, and that’s got the heads of drug loving Americans spinning.
Yu Haibin of the China National Narcotics Control Commission told reporters there was little evidence showing China was the source of much of the chemicals used in the production of the powerful opioid fentanyl. President Donald Trump in November blamed a “flood of cheap and deadly” fentanyl made in China for the deadliest drug epidemic in U.S. history.
Yu urged the U.S. to share more data and police intelligence with Chinese authorities and said rampant over-prescription of pain medication and lax cultural attitudes toward drugs had fueled massive demand for opioids in the U.S.
Insufficient drug education and the trend in some states of legalizing marijuana have hurt drug enforcement efforts, he said.
“As many states decriminalize marijuana, the public’s attitudes and trends of thinking toward drugs will also have a bad effect” on the fight against hard drugs, Yu said.
“Just Say No” has never been as popular in America as it is in China.
