American media blames China for opioid crisis, but where should the fingers be pointed?

“China has the facial recognition technology to identify every person in every major city. They control the Internet. You are telling me they can’t figure this out?”
“This is a key case in point where they just don’t care enough. With this bill, we will make them care.”
Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.) speaking to Washington Post

In context, he was talking about China's fentanyl sales.

Are you serious?? America had the biggest NSA scandal (PRISM), Google stalks people hardcore, and our liberties are being curtailed every day in the name of either "fighting terrorism" or "removing drugs". Despite this, we end up with the worst fucking opioid crisis ever. We have troops in Afghanistan who are only there for the heroin, it's the same deal as Vietnam except they found out a cheaper way to pull a 'nam and went into Afghanistan instead.

"And, in China, unlike in our country, the highest level of crime is very, very high,” Trump said. “It’s the ultimate. You pay the ultimate price.”

Meanwhile, murka is home of the largest prison population in the world.

...but many of the people in those prisons are non violent drug offenders. The reality is, police are too pussy to go after the violent gang leaders, the rich people involved in funding human/drug trafficking, etc.

They got about a thousand bots scanning this very forum, this thread, your computer, as we speak.

The reality is, it's not as easy as just throwing the dealers or the manufacturers in prison. The problem, it comes with a culture that glorifies substance abuse, one that destroys your will to live by subjugating you in the slave system that is called modern American capitalism, as long as you have consumers, you will have producers. Nobody sits around trying to sell pulled pork sandwiches to mosques. Well, nobody who isn't retarded anyway.

The fact is, we cannot solve this by making this a competitive issue, as our media unfortunately has. It must be a cooperative one

The finger should be pointed at the disaster known as US drug policy. Its only purpose is to put people in prison and/or make money for various special interests.

babysitting the argument in my head
Fear is the emotion most commonly manipulated to control people and poulations.

The opiate epidemic is the direct result the OxyContin family and other big pharma shadily creating a very large market, that grew quickly, exploding into almost traditionally opiate naïve social groups.

This creation and laws passed around this are a large part.

pharma and related people in the medical field, turned on and primed off addicts. When issues arose, the pain patient was often cut and labeled an addict or drug seeker. They were often dropped cold. This individual found the black markets. These people pumped up the black markets. Black markets looking for large returns and cheaper sought after product and run fent.

Only in Western Canada.
Oh ok, gotcha. That's the part I'm more familiar with reading about with drugs anyway but thank you for explaining better.
