The fentanyl crisis intensifies in the US, taking a mounting toll on American lives. With San Francisco experiencing an average of three fatalities per day due to fentanyl poisonings and overdoses and tragic incidents like the death of a one-year-old in New York, this issue has reached a crisis point. The drug’s primary entry route into the US is through the porous southern border, with the narcotics originating in China, then trafficked by Mexican cartels into the country. Despite this, steps are being taken to mitigate the fallout, with an additional $45.4 million funding pumped into border communities to prevent mass migrant releases.
What do you think is the most effective way to combat the fentanyl crisis?
