Mussels off the coast of Seattle test positive for opioids

As more and more American communities grapple with opioid addiction, the human toll of the epidemic has grown in both scope and severity. And now, scientists at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have found evidence that drug’s impact has literally flowed downstream to affect marine life, as well.

Specifically, they used mussels as a barometer of pollution in the waters off Seattle, and discovered that oxycodone is now present enough in the marine environment there for shellfish to test positive.

After big gov, big pharma, big Corp, and big medicine lying for 20 year, the country is in a opioid epidemic of epic proportions. History will look back at these times as we look at the Chinese opium conspiracies of the 19th cen, ie NOT an accident but the results of a conceited effort at best, and a malicious conspiracy at worst.
