  1. GOSH, I wonder who is responsible for the illegal manufacture of this drug?! Can’t we crack down on those people? I know our Dem (or is it Dim?) Leaders love to talk about the “Root cause” of problems. Wouldn’t it be better to go to the root cause of where this drug is being manufactured and eliminate the source??? How is it making it’s way into our country? Or is someone here making it? Interesting questions.

  2. This as our cognitive basket case of a president still has awareness enough to check his accounts full of communist Chinese ill-gotten gain.
    Blood money
    American blood money
    Control of our entire U.S. border yielded by him to the Mexican & Chinese drug/human trafficking empire.
    The Mexican cartels so emboldened by this president’s ice cream sucking feckless dithering that they have actually set up in China the equivalent of a drug embassy to oversee the shipments of the chemicals from China to Mexico.
