"Every tuesday on it's been a minute from n._p._r. We're speaking with ben westoff. His new book book is called sentinel inc. How rogue chemists are creating the deadliest wave of the opioid epidemic. The u._s. says that china is supplying. These drugs is that are killing u._s. Kids what do the chinese officials say. Chinese officials tend to blame the problem on the u._s. <music> and they say that the demand here is what's fueling the epidemic. They talk a lot about the prescription pills that like oxycontin were over prescribed and there's certainly a lot to be said for this argument. There's no doubt that the u._s. has focus on reducing demand here and increase what's known as harm reduction measures which is basically understanding that people are always going to use his drugs and we should try to help them do so as safely as possible and they say that they have in fact banned many substances right that the u._s. wanted them to ban and i guess in december two thousand eighteen committed to banning all fenton all infant light drugs right. That's right <hes>. Is that really going to happen. I mean based based on the experience or will there be some other way around it. I think we can take china at it's word that it has gone about banning all of the fentanyl analogues the fence and ill like drugs now doing that on paper is one i'm saying but the enforcement is the part where china has really lagged and they don't have enough people on the ground to enforce the laws laws they have on the book and and often there are competing layers of government that are at odds with each other so you might have a provincial official who wants to let these companies keep doing what they're doing because it brings in more revenue for the area right and you also note that there or some cases where chinese drug makers or sellers have been indicted in u._s. courts and the chinese government has not extradited him. Yes the china china doesn't really want to be told what to do. They don't wanna be bossed around by the us yet at the same time they also don't want to be seen as the world's leads drug pusher and so that's why you have kind of a push and pull situation where china is willing to make these these laws that are necessary but they're not willing to do other things the u._s. has asked so when we look at the circumstance where in in the united states i mean you have feno coming coming in often included in other drugs so users are misinformed about what they're getting and the results are often tragic and you write that some of the best solutions to the synthetic drug crisis are coming out of the rave scene in these dance dance parties. <hes> what what solutions do you mean. When i got started in this story i started hearing about all this adulterated ecstasy and since then there have been some really sophisticated test kits that can check to see is this drug agua. You'd think is it is or is it something else and this was developed out of the rave scene and now fenton hill test strips are are providing the same sort of service for drugs that may be adulterated with sentinel and so if you have a long time user of heroin win and they're able to check their heroin to see if there's fenton hill if they discover it studies have shown that they're less likely to the use it or to use as much or use as quickly and therefore overdose rates are likely to drop you know there's a strong belief among a lot of people who study this problem that we need to treat addiction as a disease not a crime and focus on treatment rather than punishment and of course harm-reduction <hes> there was a huge verdict in oklahoma against johnson and johnson <hes> that's now under appeal on which would require aarp hundreds of millions of dollars in payments <hes> to deal with the opioid epidemic and of course there are pending cases in federal court and elsewhere do you. I think this is a promising source of funding to deal with this problem. I think that it is and i think the closest comparison would be the big tobacco geico settlements from the nineties. It could be that the makers of these opioids including like you said johnson and johnson which as we talked about earlier is the parent company of paul johnson's company maker offense and there's funding could be used for all these public health programs that include things like medication assisted therapy which is is considered the gold standard to use drugs that help people go off these very dangerous opioids fenton hill and heroin and and take something that is still an opioid but helps them maintain their addiction while they get their lives in order and hopefully weaned off altogether when you know that the trump administration's posture on this kind of in a general way is to provide treatment for users i but bring the hammer down hard on dealers and you make the point that <hes> there's not such a clear line between the two yes often someone who's considered a dealer is really just an addict user who started dealing in order to support their own habit and so when we have these increasingly tough sentences for fence and l. dealers a lot of times you're simply fleet taking someone who needs care and locking them up so i mean as you look at where we are now with this problem column. How optimistic or pessimistic are you. Unfortunately i still remain really pessimistic specifically when it comes to fenton hill well because in the u._s. Overdose death rates are still rising and not only that but there's a huge problem in canada. There's is problems in places like australia. Different parts of europe and fenton hill has not even begun to adulterate a lot of drugs things that people use so for example in places like west virginia. There's a big prescription pill underground culture picture and so there are some cases where these fake prescription pills have been caught with fenton hill but that market has barely been tapped and offense starts taking over prescription pills and other drugs. The problem could get even worse so what should policymakers be doing. I mean is enforcement and interdiction effective or what should they be doing. I think that decades cades of war on drugs policies have shown us that it just doesn't work when pablo escobar was taken out that didn't stop the flow of cocaine certainly cocaine. There's more cocaine coming out of columbia than ever when el chapo was arrested hosted and tried that hasn't stopped the flow of drugs from mexico. It's clear to me that the focus needs to be on harm reduction and like i said being honest about the fact that people are always gonna use drugs and try to make that as safe as possible. There's there's a type of facility. That's in canada in europe that are called supervised injection facilities and their opioid users and others ars can shoot up but they're provided with clean needles. They're overseen by medical professionals and it's basically a safe environment. Can't no one has ever died in one of these facilities yet in the u._s. They're illegal and so we need to work gone. This type of solution will been westoff. Thanks so much for speaking with us. Well thanks dave. It's been a pleasure. Then westhoff spoke with fresh. Air's dave davies davies about his new book sentinel inc how rogue chemists are creating the deadliest wave of the opioid epidemic after we take a short break marine cardigan will review review the yellow house..

"But if I were to go to Colorado or California or DC probably would because I think it's pleasurable know, and I would think if I were in significant pain take in abbey perfect in Tylenol. In addition with marijuana would probably be a better alternative than than taking opiates of fake. So I I have a lot of complex feelings out. I remember grandfather when he was dying. You know, he he got to a point where he couldn't along eat because of his chemo, and he. He could not eat and they were about to have to put a tube in his belly. And you know, we're Cajun. So like it eating is a big part of our family. And so I talked to this was many years ago, many decades ago now as early twenties nine in early forties, but I talked him into marijuana and he agreed to and he was over eating and didn't prolong his life. But it definitely kept feeding to the laying that helped him be able to eat. So, you know, there are those medicinal cases of innocent portent. And there are probably the majority of people who just want to get hired. I think that's probably better than what we do right now to get a buzz on which is to use a drug called alcohol to do that. There are some implications for Mexico that we get into that later how so let's get into it. Now brought okay. So for many years Mexican marijuana, which is known as swagger known as is dirt weed is not very good. It's grown outside. It's not. What had reportedly grown like a lot of US marijuana is now. For years that was a very profitable crop for for Mexicans and for Mexican criminal groups, we call them transnational criminal organizations other people calling cartels as the more colloquial term in and as we began to decriminalize marijuana in the United States and people began to grow very sophisticated marijuana nicer marijuana Heidrun or have you call it? Mexican we go outdoors is no longer something that people really wanted. And so what happened is became very difficult for cartels to make money from marijuana. So what they did was they did two things one is some cartels like the Gulf cartel. The set us turned to migrant-smuggling and began to promote migrant-smuggling in an effort to replace their profits for marijuana and which participated in leading up to why we have the problem we have right now. Another thing that happened as Mexicans began to stop using their fields for marijuana cultivation, and they begin to grow poppy. And poppy in Mexico the hair that began to produce heroin instead of marijuana because they couldn't make money for marijuana. And none of the marijuana that the heroin that comes from Mexico black tar, and it's not very good. So because it isn't very good. It can't compete with Asian opiates or have your pharmaceuticals. So the Mexican cartels began to use Fenton hill in their heroin. And here we are today with a massive problem with people overdosing on a heroines a lot more available because of that because the criminals they wanna and be Fenton hill is killing a lot of people people are overdosing because Mexican cartels are using it to make their swag hair. Groen more powerful. So it it has a lot of implications. But again, I mean, you know, we have a lot of people whose lives have run because they were with jewelry or because they were caught with marijuana. And so there's a there's consequences either way what we do. But, but those are one of the consequences, and I say that as someone who thinks it should be criminalized. There are consequences to dependent allies. And no it determined not quences just got done, listen them. But one of the things that, you know, people often say, especially the libertarian crown is say well. You know, Mexico's problems and migration would be stopped. If if we just ended the drug war, and that's just not true when we ended the some of the war on their one..

But from the perspective of legitimate pain patients, the forgotten millions who've been cast aside in the hysteria of this latest war on drugs. It is not a crisis. You remember all those other wars on drugs, right?

This latest war on drugs has had the same success as all the previous wars on drugs meeting not much. But this time the targets were not illicit drug lords or cartels or the mob. This time. The targets were weren't a moving target. They were chronic pain patients, easy to hit legitimate people who depend on opioids so they can function. So they can hold down a job. So they can go shopping care for their families people who get medicine from their doctors and who generally play by the rules, a very easy target compared to the cartels millions of people have seen their lives crumble. As a result of a crackdown that wasn't necessary wasn't justified and hasn't been effective. Overdose deaths. Did not go down. They went up. And the reason is pretty simple. The people who are dying from OD's are killing themselves with illicit drugs. Not legal prescription drugs when there were pill mills and over prescribing of legal medicine, and that happened for a while was certainly true for a while the people who were dying are taking illicit drugs. They're call them opioids and confused the public into believing that they're the same as prescription medications. They're not the facts.

They're call them opioids and confused the public into believing that they're the same as prescription medications. They're not. The facts. Now, prove it beyond all doubt, people are dying from heroine, which is an opioid, and Fenton hill and elicit and powerful drug an opioid smuggled into the country. Not the pharmaceutical version, which is rare and expensive this one is cheap and plentiful and powerful, and it's turning up in meth and cocaine and heroin and counterfeit pills, and people are dying as a result, and the people dying are dying with all kinds of.

"Saturday into Scott it right? See that's what happens when you let your pedantic instincts yank over chump only about two hundred people died a day last year from an opioid overdose. I watched the needle. Apparently the highest level ever recorded in the US seventy two thousand people died the big deal while this heroin. Of course, there's opioids and now it. And that's the dangerous one nil because it takes just a tiny little bit of Fenton hill. And it's basically over, you know, the first responders whenever there is fear fennel. They wear gloves. Respirator all you need is a little tiny bit. And even they can pass through the skin and really screw someone up. So Fenella is cheap to make and it's easy to transport, and you literally only need a tiny little bit of it. And there's a zillion hits. Here's all this is a terrible story. These two physicians wanted to get their son a flu shot they wanna do it at pharmacy. But there in Texas where apparently you're not allowed to get a flu shot at a pharmacy. So they said, you know, what we'll just wait 'til his next appointment with the doctor, which is January and kid got the fluid guys. And he was not vaccinated a year before last time around, and it's hard to believe that physicians would not vaccinate their kids, their children instantly as soon as flu season comes around soon as a vaccine is available, boom. You know, I belong to Kaiser as you know, and they're very good at calling up and whenever we make an appointment. They confirm, etc. All they do is talk about every time. I see them. Have you gotten your flu shot? Have you gotten your flu shot? They have stands in the lobby. Everybody who walks in they go. Did you get a flu shot get over here and there free area aggressive free? And it's every entrance to the medical clinics hospital. I've never gotten a they needed. You're going to die. Well. No, not I get the flu shot. You're not going to be here next year. Okay. They need to change this law in Texas. That says a pharmacist that you can't get to the pharmacy the kids seven there's no reason for that. But tonight with the soup is it too hot. Yes..

"Mother and look at this price. Now, she's attractive. Okay. She admits to stealing. Thing about taking her out for the date. Yeah. If you go to a pizza place, you don't even have to cut the pizza. Okay. You know, what she looks like she looks like remember when drew Carey was fat. She looks like she looks like Louie Anderson mixed in with drew Carey with a long blonde wig. And then talk marks all over faith. They were strung out on math yet still didn't lose the weight. So this Missouri mother admits to stealing her terminally ill daughter's pain medication. Her daughter is dying. And now she's facing charges after police say she stole all of the pain meds. Her name is Carol ball all of them. So she didn't even share them know, Carol ballwig's, charged with a controlled substance and abuse of a vulnerable person after she said, yes, I stole my daughter's Fenton hill and oxycodone what you give the daughter Tylenol. Her daughter is twenty years old. She's in hospice care. She's I guess she has cancer and the twenty year old suspected that. Her mother was not giving her the prescription doses of Oxy Infantino because she was in pain. And so excuse me, staff members started to look into it. Because of the concerns her doctor tested her urine for the medication. The results showed no signs of the medication. They also found that the victim had bed sores talking about the victim now during the investigation ballwig's told the police that she was addicted to opioids and said, yes, I stole it. She was charged with four counts of stealing controlled substance and two counts of abuse of her daughter and her bonds one hundred thousand your daughter's dying. How sick do you have to be to seal see only paint when my mom was suffering from cancer my birth. Mom. She had I don't know twenty bottles pills lying around and you had to make sure different times like who who she gets different medications different doses. Because it's extremely painful, and you don't wanna see somebody suffer. Although this woman didn't care. Well, do you have any idea how strung out she must have been because when someone's dying they give them as you described bottle after pill bottle after pill bottle looks like Graceland in their sentinel is the one that. Can kill you. So she's dosing herself with sentinel. The whole thing is just tragic on every level.

"It has worked not perfectly but as worked the having a legal market has taken a lot of steam out of the black market or is there still illegal marijuana operations absolutely human nature but what we've also seen if you look at criminal justice reform we know that in the nineties we had a criminal justice response to what was really a public health problem and we incarcerated an entire generation of mostly men of color in its had devastating impacts particularly in cities as those people get released from prison they can't get housing they can't get jobs and if you look in seattle marijuana's nell legal in washington state there's a range of people who had been convicted for behavior misdemeanor possession so just small amounts possessing it's now legal today because our norms have changed our science is better so why should we penalize those people so when we came in we looked at it carefully and thought one of the ways we could do is to act broadly and devait kate the convictions of those people convicted under city law for minor possessions over five hundred people were gonna we have moved to vacate their convictions it will them in their families doesn't that encourage more people to get involved in drugs now that's the counterargument here i don't think it does at all because what actually the reverse happens it allows us to expand our resources in our energies on those kinds of drug interventions that are most important our federal partners need to be focused not on marijuana but on the opiate crisis on keeping heroin out of our country at regulating fenton hill on actually regulating the pharmaceutical industry so you didn't get fifty pills forgetting your wisdom teeth out and so if we can focus our resources on what matters the most and take some of the money we were using for prosecution and have it on a public health strategy for treatment and diversion in education will be a better society do you think it's working so far.
