Obama’s Handiwork: Massachusetts Declares Public Health Emergency over Heroin Epidemic

Governor Patrick Duval of Massachusetts declared a public health emergency on March 27, responding to the dramatic rise of heroin use, addiction and related deaths due to overdose, which have reached epidemic proportions.

Recall that in January, the governor of Vermont dedicated his entire State of the State address to the heroin epidemic in that state. Nor is the problem limited to New England; consumption and related deaths are rising across the United States. In Massachusetts, opiate overdoses rose by 90% between 2000 and 2012. In the past three months alone, 185 people have died from heroin overdoses in the state.

“We have an epidemic of opiate abuse in Massachusetts, so we will treat it like the public health crisis it is,” Patrick said, announcing a series of measures to be taken immediately. Among them, he said that first responders will now carry and administer the overdose reversal medication naloxone, and the drug will be made available in drug stores for “those who fear a loved one might overdose.” There will also be a temporary ban of hydrocodone-only formulation pain killers in the state, as these pose “a significant risk to individuals already addicted to opiates and to the public at large.”

The heroin epidemic, however, is far more than a “public health crisis.” It is the intended result of the policy of Britain’s Dope, Inc. to massively addict and destroy American youth, just as they are doing to Russia with their control over Afghan opium and heroin. Heroin is now cheaper and more accessible for American kids than an equivalent “high” from opioid painkillers such as Vicodin and Percocet. This is the standard Dope, Inc. marketing technique: We lower our price to expand our market. Once addicted, they’re ours.

Among the urgently needed measures to reverse this genocide is the immediate ouster of Barack Obama from the White House.
