(RightIsRight.co) – United States Representative Lauren Boebert, a Colorado Republican, wants the highly-deadly drug fentanyl classified as a weapon of mass destruction. According to state and federal authorities, fentanyl has killed tens of thousands of Americans and is deadly in even very small doses.
According to The Hill in, “Boebert introduces measure to classify fentanyl a weapon of mass destruction”:
“The bill would direct the assistant secretary in charge of the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office (CWMD) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to treat fentanyl as a WMD.
“Boebert told Fox News in an interview that the bill would allow DHS, the Justice and Defense departments, and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to better coordinate their efforts to ‘eliminate the threat posed by this deadly substance.’”
Responding to questions from The Hill, Boebert shared what many Americans have experienced, saying “that almost everyone she talks to in Colorado knows someone who has died from fentanyl.”
“Fentanyl is America’s silent killer and is now the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18 to 45,’ Boebert said. ‘The saddest thing about the fentanyl crisis is that it is preventable.’”
