Most drug enforcement personnel will say fighting the inflow of drugs to our Nation is a tough one; it is an issue of supply and demand. The demand 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 is still too high, so the price goes up, we have more local crime as users steal to get the money to purchase the drugs, and much more gang warfare for the drug-selling land. The cartel and its dealer network also has a larger incentive (higher street value) to discover new ways to import the product. Nothing in that situation is good, and it is almost a no win situation.
Not long ago, a member of our think tank noted that due to all the money laundering and drug cartel activity in the USA, 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 stated:
“Drugs in our nation are now so abundant that the DEA is trying to find a contractor to decontaminate cash seized in drug raids. The brokers wear latex gloves whenever they handle the money, but with the spread of the super powerful opioid/fentanyl combination, as well as other designer drugs, they think that they need to genuinely launder the money somehow. Fentanyl might not be absorbed by the skin easily but who knows what crap they are putting on the cash on purpose.”
It was also recently reported that the police and drug authorities are discovering paper coated with fentanyl on their windshields place on them such as a parking ticket, to hurt our police and also drive the puppy drug enforcement dogs crazy.
It’s common knowledge and has been the case for years that nearly every $20 to $100 bill has cocaine residue on it. Yes, our money really is dirty, indeed, it is drug money isn’t 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 really winning the war on drugs – since, it sure doesn’t look like it from where I am sitting. For those who have a solution, please pass it on.
