far as i'm informed companies that manufacture fentanyl in china. it was legal to manufacture fentanyl up until early march. fortunately their state department and others have been helping to change that so we can get some cooperation to reduce the flow. but it doesn't vn reduced yet and we've got a ways to go. fentanyl is 50 times more potent than heroin. one gram, a tiny amount of fentanyl is like 50 grams of heroin. that means it can be shipped in the mail, it can be shipped in commercial carriers nap's a fancy way of saying fedex, dhl and the other -- not postal service but the other ways you ship packages across the borders. it's shipped directly to the states or shipped to canada and mexico. "the wall street journal," you know, they're all about business, reminded us that this is a business. the raw products cause about $1,000 of fentanyl can be sold on the streets in the u.s. for about a million dollars. that's a pretty big profit margin and it motivates a lot of behavior. i think as much as we can focus on the supply, we better do something to help people enter recover
