The Journey of Fentanyl

WatchThe Journey of Fentanyl

In this eye-opening documentary, we delve deep into the journey of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid responsible for the deaths of 60,000 Americans every year. Starting from its origins in Chinese laboratories, where precursor chemicals like N-Phenethyl-4-piperidinone (NPP) and 4-anilino-N-phenethylpiperidine (ANPP) are produced, we trace the complex and clandestine supply chain that brings this deadly drug to the streets of the United States. You’ll follow a cargo ship loaded with seemingly harmless household items, including hidden packages of these lethal chemicals, as it travels from Huanghua Port in China to Manzanillo Port in Mexico. Once there, Mexican cartels employ sophisticated methods, including tunnels and underground labs, to synthesize and distribute fentanyl. Discover how this potent drug, capable of killing with just a few milligrams, makes its way through an elaborate network of smuggling operations, ultimately reaching users across the U.S. This in-depth investigation exposes the challenges faced by authorities in combating this epidemic and raises critical questions about the global efforts needed to stem the flow of fentanyl. Join us as we uncover the dark reality behind one of the most dangerous drugs affecting our society today.
