  • On the latest episode of Patriot Act, Hasan discusses America’s opioid epidemic and the recent spike in deaths due to one drug in particular: fentanyl. One of the most powerful drugs ever created, Fentanyl is a highly potent opiate that’s now the leading cause of overdose deaths in the United States. Hasan looks into its makers and distributors, from cartels to pharmaceutical companies like Insys and Teva, to discern how it has been able to wreak so much havoc on so many lives.

    I read about the 'Fentanyl Crisis' (not directly, but it was a plot device) in David Baldacci's novel 'The Fallen', where the manager of a logistics-based company used his company's logistics to assist a fentanyl-running cartel run their operations.

    Props to Hasan for taking on the 'Legal Drug Cartel' and adding another name to the long-growing list of adversaries..

    In 2007, my mom who was diagnosed with breast cancer was given fentanyl after we specifically told them not to because she had an adverse reaction to it, and the doctors did it anyway without telling her or any of us about it - it killed her three days later. This video was hard to watch, knowing that she was a victim among the many who were senselessly murdered by a greedy drug industry. It just brings that pain and anger back to me over a decade later, that she didn't have to die that way.

    Fentanyl is an important component of general anaesthesia.. anaesthesiologists administer it a couple of micrograms/kg immediately prior to intubation and surgery . I'm shocked it's handed over on an out patient basis. It can cause profound respiratory depression (it can stop your breathing)

    I survived the Opioid Epidemic ! This is my generation's problem. If you were born between 1978-1988, chances are almost 100% that you or someone you knows life was effected by prescription opioids. Less people died from Oxy than what happened when people couldn't get it anymore.
