Most drug enforcement employees will say fighting the inflow of drugs into our Country is a demanding one; it is an issue of supply and demand. The need here in the united states is high, and the drug cartels appear to have an infinite supply. Even if you reduce the inflow of supply the demand remains too large, so the purchase price goes up, we have more neighborhood crime as users steal to find the money to purchase the drugs, and much more gang warfare for the drug-selling land. The cartel and its dealer network also includes a larger incentive (higher street value) to discover new ways to import the item. Nothing in that situation is good, and it is almost a no win situation.
Not long ago, a part of our think tank noted that because of all of the money laundering and drug cartel activity in the united states, some of which may clearly be blamed on US Citizen demand and consumption, our paper money has drug residue in its fibers, readily traceable and in an alarming saturation percentage. Actually, our think tank member said:
“Drugs in our country are now so abundant that the DEA is trying to find a builder to decontaminate cash seized in drug raids. The brokers wear latex gloves whenever they manage the cash, but with the spread of the super strong opioid/fentanyl mix, as well as other designer drugs, they believe that they need to genuinely launder the money . Fentanyl may not be absorbed by the skin readily but who knows what crap they’re putting on the cash on purpose.”
It was also recently reported that the police and drug authorities are discovering paper coated with fentanyl in their windshields location on them such as a parking ticket, to hurt our authorities and also drive the puppy drug enforcement dogs mad.
Yes, our money is actually dirty, indeed, it’s drug money is not it? The next thing you know people will go to the ATM for $20 bills so that they can roll them up and smoke them like crack, obtaining a $20 high off the damn residue? This drug problem is getting mad. So, I dare to ask: Are we winning the war on drugs – since, it sure does not look like it from where I’m sitting.
