TAMPA IS TULSA
The DEA is engaged in the targeting of Black Pharmacy Owners in the so-called opioid epidemic. (1) Through threats and intimidation DEA is using fictitiously written “Warrants” that classify these pharmacies as ” IMMINENT DANGERS AND PUBLIC HEALTH THREATS.” This has happened quite frequently to Black Pharmacy owners across the country.
Today Tampa, Fl., Oak Hill Wv., Ft. Myers, Fl., Coral Springs, Houston, Tx., Chicago, Il., are Tulsa. (1),(2),(6) (SEE BELOW VIDEO: DEA AGENT ENTERS LEGAL PHARMACY AND DISABLES SECURITY CAMERAS),(2)(5)
BLACK-OWNED PHARMACIES ARE SYSTEMATICALLY RACIALLY PROFILED
The common man or woman has very little understanding of how so-called drug policies directly affect their daily living, until they become are diagnosed with some chronic illness or have a loved one who may be facing death. Then, the importance of chronic illness and disease states is ever so critical.
Let it further be clear, patients being treated for chronic pain who travel to a Black-owned pharmacy are called “RED FLAGS” by the DEA and these pharmacies are classified as imminent dangers to the “Public Health.” While the same patients traveling to non-black owned pharmacies, with the same prescriptions, using the exact same payment methodology, the fictitious label of “red flags” does not truly exist.
However, the large chain pharmacies and their parent companies clearly violate laws through false billings and even forged prescriptions on their part, while the DEA collects billions of dollars in what amounts to “extortion fines” and the large chains are given a pass. These warnings remain ever so obliterated, and one cannot ignore the functions of how race works in these types of proceedings.
THE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND SUPPORTIVE STAFF CONCERNED GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS
When understanding the level of corruption of the DEA and why this Federal Agency must be disbanded, defunded, or redirected out of medicine. One needs only to ask themselves two fundamental questions.
1. How long has the DEA been around?
2. How long has pain anxiety been around?
The DEA has gained power in 3 ways:
A. Through its Kangaroo Court System:
Which are permitted to operate outside the Rules of Federal Evidence and Civil Procedures?
B. Through threats and intimidation:
Using seizure clauses the DEA has managed to muscle their way into the Medical/Dental/Pharmacy professions until they have literally, redefined, reinterpreted medical procedures, protocols and have criminalized them, (such as addiction and dependency).
C. Through Junk Science:
DEA’S EXPERT TWINS OF DECEPTION
THE CONGRESS MUST INVESTIGATE AND DEFUND THE UNITED STATES DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENCY (DEA)
They’ve (DEA) exploited the use of a network of medical practitioner hustlers such as Donald Sullivan RPh., Phd., Timothy Munzing, MD., in Court Rooms who have been well paid by the Government see GovTribe. (1),(2),(3) Their testimony which often relies on tacit bias without examining radiographs (X-rays) the patients or interviewing prescribing practitioners in many cases are equivalent to the discredited bite mark evidence once used in courtrooms.
The DOJ, DEA idea is to starve us out of business through harassment, intimidation, and fraudulent misrepresentations by their network of so-called DEA experts like Timothy Munzing, MD. (1)
According to GovTribe, a website that tracks payments to federal contractors, Munzing is paid $300 an hour by the DEA. (1) In the past few months, Munzing has been paid over $250,000 by the DEA to review patient records and testify as an expert witness in DEA cases. (1)
Dr. Munzing who works with Kaiser Permanente and Donald R. Sulivan Professor at Ohio State University College of Pharmacy never appears to have examined or interviews the patients or prescribing physicians and relies conclusions on Junk Science in their Courtroom testimonies.
Jack Folson RPh., expert pharmacist Consultant from Michigan stated in his May, 2020 report known as The Folson Amicus Brief:
Presently, because of the criminalization of pain management suffering has increased and has led, to an increase in Heroin use. Due to the dangers associated with heroin use this, more than anything else, in this case, is an immediate threat to public safety. To put it plainly the actions by the DEA are causing the thing that they are trying to avoid.
THE STORY OF FOREST TENNANT MD
According to Pain News Network, March 26, 2018 publication by Pat Anson, (1)
Dr. Forest Tennant, and his wife and office manager, Miriam, have informed patients that they are closing their pain clinic in the Los Angeles suburb of West Covina, effective April 1. 2018.
Dr. Tennant’s retirement is largely due to an ongoing DEA investigation of his opioid prescribing practices. DEA agents raided the Tennants’ home and clinic last November, while Tennant was testifying in Montana as a defense witness in the trial of a doctor accused of negligent homicide in the overdose of two patients. The Tennants arrived home to find the front door of their home had been kicked in by DEA agents. (2),(3)
A DEA search warrant alleged that Tennant was part of a “drug trafficking organization” and had personally profited from the sale of high dose opioid prescriptions. Denise Molohon, another Tennant patient who lives with arachnoiditis, in an email wrote:
“But I am most deeply saddened today for the entire chronic pain community – both patients and providers – for the tsunami of injustices perpetrated by DOJ/DEA and CDC in their cruelty, ignorance, and haste to appear as though they are fighting the opioid overdose epidemic by ruining the lives of many innocent physicians. Their combined actions have had the tragic result of harming untold millions and leading to the senseless, needless deaths of patients all across our country whose only fault was suffering from horrific, intractable pain.”
“The government has stepped in and stopped doctors from treating patients. They have created a hostile work environment for physicians who refuse to conform. Physicians who refuse to let their patients suffer. Addiction is a huge problem but so is intractable pain, yet those of us who play by the rules are the ones who suffer,” said Kate Lamport, a Tennant patient who has arachnoiditis.
CONGRESS MUST HAVE OVERSIGHT AND INVESTIGATE
OUR FIGHT IS OUR FAITH
We Pharmacists are from diverse peoples of families, who demanded and encouraged education, that was bonded into our faith. This messages from Ephesians 3:20
Now unto Him, that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
And this message from Psalm 37:4 further guides us.
Delight yourselves also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.
We will defeat and destroy this enemy with Wisdom, Knowledge, Truth, and Faith for our ancestors have reminded in the struggle: (7)
“Often our tasks will be many and sometimes, more than we think we can do. Often the road will be rugged and the hills will seem insurmountable too. But always remember that the hills are never as steep as they seem if you have the faith to follow your dream.
For nothing in life that is worthy is ever too hard to achieve if you have the courage to try it and the faith to believe.
Faith is a force far greater than knowledge, or power, or skill,
And many defeats turn to triumph if you trust in God’s wisdom and will. For faith will move mountains; there is NOTHING that God can’t do! (6)
THESE Black pharmacists WERE ATTACKED AND are fighting BACK

6. A prayer found on the internet (Tiff)
7. I knew Rev. Vivian, for 32 years, he guided me (us)in every struggle with his wisdom a knowledge saying moment, movement , sacrifice, think tanks. He guided us at Dental Survey of America to always research, publish and getting our message out there. His passing did not sadden me(us) but only strengthen our resolve.
