Fentanyl overdose becomes leading cause of death for adults age 18 to 45


Recommended Posts

Fentanyl overdose is now the leading cause of death for US adults ages 18 to 45, according to numbers from the disgraced CDC.

Official overdose numbers for 2020 were 40% higher than the previous year. Fentanyl was to blame for 73% of those overdoses. In 2021, preliminary data indicates fentanyl was involved in 77% of overdose deaths.

That 77% is a dramatic increase from the 31% of fentanyl-involved overdose deaths in 2016. The percentage has increased every year since, up to 53% in 2017, 56% in 2018 and 61% in 2019.

In North Carolina, more than 3,300 people died from overdoses in 2020.

… Wonder who is killing our kids and why and whose allowing it?
