I held back on posting this out of respect for Mark and his loss but I have seen it posted elsewhere and I gather that Mark wants the message to get out. Thousand are dying from drug -overdoses in the USA. I believe that more have died from fentanyl than from covid. Fentanyl is a potent synthetic opioid, which, similar to morphine, produces analgesia but to a greater extent.
Mark wears gloves and a mask to protect himself from the sample he has because fentanyl is extremely potent and can be absorbed through the skin or breathed in. Someone who has never used it before can be incapacitated or killed just by breathing in some “dust”. I saw a video of a policeman faint and go into cardiac arrest at a traffic stop (because he breathed in fentanyl). His colleague had to administer Naloxone. It has become the scourge of America. Both Michael Jackson and Prince died from fentanyl overdoses.
China is the number one supplier of fentanyl to the United States. China is also the main supplier to Canada and Mexico. Cartels in the latter usually then smuggle it into the United States. China’s revenge for the Opium Wars? They have long memories. Empires clash and psychopathic megalomaniacs want to rule and they don’t care how many lives they ruin along the way. Ordinary people always suffer…whether they are American or Chinese.
I am so sorry for your loss Mark. I hope your message helps others.
