NEW YORK – More than 50,000 Americans died from drug overdoses last year which is the most ever in recorded history. This is all the result of Obama’s immigration policies as well as the fact that he, himself doesn’t see a problem with using drugs.
OBAMA’S MEXICAN GANGS ARE BRINGING THIS GARBAGE INTO THE USA AND KILLING OUR KIDS!
There is a soaring abuse of heroin and prescription painkillers, a class of drugs known as opioids in America.
Heroin deaths rose 23 percent in one year, to 12,989, slightly higher
than the number of gun homicides, according to government data released
Deaths from synthetic opioids, including illicit Fentanyl, rose 73
percent to 9,580. And prescription painkillers took the highest toll,
but posted the smallest increase. Abuse of drugs like Oxycontin and
Vicodin killed 17,536, an increase of 4 percent.
Robert Anderson, who oversees death statistics at the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention said,”I don’t think we’ve ever seen
anything like this. Certainly not in modern times.”
The new numbers were part of the agency’s annual tally of deaths and death rates in 2015.
Overall, overdose deaths rose 11 percent last year, to 52,404. By comparison, the number of people who died in car crashes was 37,757, an increase of 12 percent. Gun deaths, including homicides and suicides, totaled 36,252, up 7 percent.
Heroin abuse is absolutely out of control among America’s youth.
It’s cheap and readily available thanks to the Mexican drug dealers that have flooded America thanks to Obama and the democrats.
