Blueprint for Justice: Fentanyl

Blueprint for Justice - Fentanyl

Fentanyl is 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. 2 milligrams (the equivalent of two grains of rice) will kill you in 2 minutes. Fentanyl’s only purpose is to get you highly addicted and then kill you. In fact, it is the number one killer of people between 18-35 years old, and the DEA estimates that 7 out of 10 fake pills ranging from OxyContin and Adderall to Xanax and Percocet contain lethal doses of fentanyl. The Mexican drug cartels are importing into California enough fentanyl and fentanyl-laced drugs to kill the entire California population many times over. Gascon has refused to treat fentanyl poisoners/murderers as the threats they are to our children. He has refused to provide warnings to convicted fentanyl dealers that if they do the crime again and someone dies, they will be charged with murder. As District Attorney, I will hold those fentanyl poisoners/murderers fully accountable for their actions of spreading this poison throughout our communities. Every fentanyl dealer will be warned of the severe repercussions to their liberty if they kill a person with their poison. And I will work to bring a massive education effort to students and their parents in middle and high schools about the lethal danger fentanyl poses. Gascon’s failure to act costs lives every day; that will change on Day 1 of my administration.
