Each passing day, fentanyl brings death and despair to communities across America, including in Arizona. Fentanyl now kills more Americans than car accidents, suicides or gun violence. The calamity grows worse month after month. Sadly, just last week, the Tempe Police Department announced an estimated 4.5 million fentanyl pills and 3,000 pounds of methamphetamine, heroine and cocaine were seized during a recent drug bust in Arizona. Days earlier and just down the road in Sacaton, another 1,500 pounds of fentanyl were seized by Arizona state troopers. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 196 Americans are dying each day from fentanyl, and more than 2,000 pounds of the deadly drug pour across our open southern border every month. Meanwhile, Joe Biden does nothing to close the border or penalize the drug cartels and others known to be trafficking deadly drugs. We must get tough on those criminals that are contributing to this drug crisis. My legislation would punish anyone who knowingly traffics fentanyl with the death penalty or life in prison,” concluded Congressman Gosar. Background: Fentanyl-related deaths doubled in 30 states between 2019 and 2021, according to an analysis of United States government data by the opioid awareness organization Families Against Fentanyl. The synthetic opioid can be deadly even in very small amounts, and other drugs, including heroin, meth and marijuana, can be laced with the dangerous drug. Mexico and China are the primary sources for the flow of fentanyl into the United States, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency. H.R. 1212 would amend Part D of the Controlled Substance Act by adding any person who knowingly distributes, possesses with the intents to distribute, or manufactures fentanyl shall, if death results, be punished by death or imprisonment for life. ### WEBSITE | UNSUBSCRIBE | CONTACT ME Share on Facebook | Share on TwitterWashington, DC Office 2057 Rayburn HOB Washington, DC 20515 Phone: (202) 225-2315Goodyear 1300 S.

HiI think not only is the fentanyl problem because of the open borders the reason that people are griping these sort of drugs is to alleviate the cares and worries they have on a daily basis This is of course due to the current financial climate the inflation the lack of reasonably priced housing etc etc Things need to change at state level first to change it at Federal level There are several groups that developed as a result of The People's Convoy of last year who are working for change at a state level instead of trying to change the federal level because that will not work due to the corruption that is already in there. The J6 prisoners are a good example of how corrupt the justice system is. Unfortunately the people running our country at the moment are the most corrupt. We all know all governments are in it mostly for themselves but they do at least try to help the people. Well I tell you this we the people are still pissed off. The issues we are working on now are no longer covid related but related to getting these Emergency Powers stopped before our dear president does something stupid. And you all have to remember you work for us not the other way around.
