China Leverages Fentanyl As Weapon Against United States

Former Drug Enforcement Administration official warns fentanyl trafficking part of ‘unrestricted warfare’ strategy
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON - MARCH 12: A homeless man, 24,  smokes fentanyl on March 12, 2022 in Seattle, Washington. Widespread drug addiction is endemic in Seattle's large homeless community, which the city is currently trying to move out from shared public spaces. According to a recent report commissioned by Seattle Councilmember Andrew Lewis, the COVID-19 pandemic put undue pressure on the city's shelter system and delayed funds for new housing, leading to an increase in homelessness.
