Every time when I turn the TV on or read newspapers, they inform us about
the problems of drugs in the US.

It seems like that the US has been flooded by cheap heroin or
methamphetamine from the Mexican drug cartels.

Our local newspaper had a good investigational report on fentanyl soar.

• In April, a tractor -trailer was stopped by police near Kearney, Nebraska, with
118 pounds of pure fentanyl which would be enough to kill 26 million people.
It was headed to the East Coast.

• In March, a narcotics agency in New York City seized more than 44 pounds of
fentanyl at a hotel, and another 100 pounds seizure with the smuggling
organization, it came to Arizona and headed to the New York City.

• In February, in Boston 33 pounds of heroin and fentanyl was seized.

These are a small number of seizures of fentanyl. It’s just showing that it’s soaring.
I read that most of the fentanyl come from China and then to Mexico.
The chemical industry has boomed in China recent years. China is having difficulty
to control this because the number of chemical plants and laboratories are more than
160,000.


In summary, fentanyl from China is being to Mexico and to be shipped to
the US.

Fentanyl can be used as a painkiller for cancer and degenerating bone killer.
Pharmaceutical companies are using fentanyl to sell as a painkiller and
patients would be addicted eventually. Everything is about money and business.
This situation is risky for all of us.

About 20 years ago, I had total hip surgery, after the surgery, my nurse told me that
whenever I felt pain I should turn the button on which was attached to me by the tube.
It contained morphine, which according to the nurse, “It’s ok for you to turn
the morphine button since you need to sleep tonight. Don’t worry”. I’m glad
this was only for one night. I was not addicted.

深刻な問題

アメリカでは,麻薬の取引が日本などと比べて,たやすく行われて薬物依存の人も増えているらしいですね。。銃の問題,難民の問題,本当に大変な時期。呉々も気をつけてお過ごし下さい。

度々のコメント失礼します。
題名の“Risky game”というのは、どういう意味でしょうか。
私の前のコメント、見当はずれでしたら申し訳ありません。

Risky Game

ドラッグについてです。アメリカ市民にとって、中国産のドラッグがメキシコ経由で簡単に手にはいる、危ないゲームだねという比喩的に使っていました。
でも、パッと通じないということは、書き手である、私の責任です。ごめんなさ〜い。

解説して下さってありがとうございます。
冗談が通じないと言われる私も、よく分かりました😌
