Homeland Security is reportedly considering labeling fentanyl as a weapon of mass destruction
Why is this on the CNBC site? What does it have to do with the financial markets? It's going to send the markets down!!!


The Department of Homeland Security is considering classifying fentanyl as a weapon of mass destruction, or WMD, according to an internal memo attained by military news outlet Task & Purpose.

The memo said the painkiller would be labeled a WMD “when certain criteria are met,” and that federal officials have “long regarded fentanyl as a chemical weapons threat.”

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that can be up to 100 times more potent than morphine. It is prescribed to treat severe pain but is also sold illegally in the U.S. Fentanyl-related deaths in the country spiked more than 1,000% from 2011 to 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2017, more than 28,000 U.S. citizens fatally overdosed on the drug.

The drug’s high toxicity and increasing availability are “attractive” to potential adversaries “seeking nonconventional materials for a chemical attack,” James McDonnell, an assistant secretary at DHS, wrote in the memo, according to Task & Purpose.

McDonnell wrote that “as little as” 2 to 3 milligrams of fentanyl can induce respiratory depression, respiratory arrest and possibly death.

The memo said the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction office would only focus on quantities and configurations of the drug that could be used as mass casualty weapons.

Because it's going to be used in an attack involving drones.
Will cause a hazmat nightmare.

Go to your pharmacy and get narcan, it's free (or a prescription fee). They ask no questions and will dispense it without a prescription. I told my pharmacist why I wanted it, they didn't care. Keep narcan on hand.

Also prepare your house for quarantine.
Make sure you have a change of clothes in your car.
Make sure your family knows not to bring contamination into the house. Have a station outside and a plan in place.

Good idea to plan to stay inside for a long period of time, just in case. Know CPR and when to run.

That's not smart on China's end. Their only customer is the American customer. If they kill half of us off, no one will be buying their shitty products.
