China has agreed to regulate all fentanyl-related drugs as a controlled substance. Fentanyl drugs are responsible for many of the deaths in America’s opioid crisis. Chinese chemists create new opioids faster than the old ones can be banned. US officials say that China is the main source of synthetic opioids shipped into America by mail or transported via Mexico. China, however, denies the claim. President Trump says the crackdown could be “a game changer” for the United States where tens of thousands of people die from opioid overdoses annually. [Pardon our skepticism but listen carefully to the exact words Chinese officials use in this announcement. One gets the impression they will increase regulations but they say nothing about banning these drugs or even reducing production. Who cares how much regulation they administer if the drugs continue to be easily available. A major portion of the drug crisis stems from ‘regulated’ opioid prescriptions from medical professionals.In the world of politics, regulations are made to be circumvented by the highest bidder.] -GEG
China said Monday it would begin regulating all fentanyl-related
drugs as a class of controlled substances, in a change U.S. officials
had long advocated as a way to stem the flow of lethal opioids from
The sweeping change in the way China regulates drugs that
mimic fentanyl takes effect May 1 and could help end the game of
regulatory whack-a-mole with chemists who can manufacture novel opioids
faster than they can be banned. It could also facilitate prosecutions of
opioid merchants in China, who until now have skirted the law by
manufacturing and exporting fentanyl variants that were technically
legal in China.
“We firmly believe that listing the entire class
of fentanyl substances will completely block the loopholes that enable
law breakers to evade punishment by simply modifying one or several
atoms, functional groups or other groups,” said Liu Yuejin,
vice-commissioner of China’s National Narcotics Control Commission. “It
will effectively prevent the massive abuse of fentanyl substances and
illegal drug trafficking and smuggling activities, and contribute to
global drug control with China’s wisdom and power.”

drug. Data from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration have shown that

control over fentanyl drugs is very strict,” Liu told reporters. “It
cannot be the main source for the United States. The U.S. accusation
lacks evidence and is contrary to the facts.”

According to a poll recorded in 2016, a stunning 67% of Republican voters thought mass immigration was a critical threat, but only 16% of GOP leaders agreed that it was a serious problem.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
