Afghan heroin

Wow! Pennsylvania is third! Good, right? Not this time. We are third of 50 states in the abuse of heroin!

Is Pennsylvania law enforcement that ineffective? Are our legislators paying more attention to re-elections, pay raises and lobbyists? Is there no enforceable plan to stop the terrible destruction caused by the use of this drug? Where is the “War on Drugs”? Do more “people of power” need to lose loved ones to this?

Where does heroin come from? How is it that the media never tell us that most of the heroin found on our streets and in the arms of our dead young people comes from Afghanistan! The very place where our soldiers are dying to keep Afghans free! No wonder the tribal leaders of Afghanistan want us to stay there and die there while they continue to profit from the export of this deadly drug.

To believe the federal government doesn’t know about heroin coming from Afghanistan is ludicrous. They’ve had boots on the ground and eyes in the sky for over ten years. This tells me that the American people are collateral damage — again — to a foreign policy gone astray.
