Senator Hatch on DEA and Opioid Crisis and Abuses
WHAT IS THE WAR ON DRUGS
THERE WILL BE NO EASY FIX
We must cultivate a sense of cooperation politically and medically move towards formatted policies of life-time treatment of chronic chemical addiction disease and there will be “No Easy Fix.” Those who wage this “War on Drugs” DEA. DOJ has failed over the past 40 odd years to disrupt, destroy and impact non-medical derivatives of the phenanthrene rings (opiates, opioids) produced by cartels.
NIXON’S WAR ON DRUG WAS A DECLARED WAR ON BLACKS AND WHITE HIPPIES
“WE KNOW WHEN WE ARE BEING LIED TOO”
The attack on black-owned pharmacies is a directed extension of Richard M.Nixon’s campaign of 1968. The Nixon White House had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people as stated by John Ehrlichman then chief of Nixon’s domestic policy.
“Do you understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course, we did.” (1),(2),(12)
HISTORIC BACKGROUND OF THE DRUG WAR: RACE, TRADE, AND SUPPRESSION
The understanding of “The War on Drugs” is understanding the rape of China and that racism is an integral part of the structure of the economy of the United States of America. If one has properly been studied in pharmacy and the origins of medicinals such as Opium and the cultivation of the poppy seed plant then it is nearly impossible to not stumble upon the “Opium Wars.”
DR. HELEN HANSEN “WHITE OPIOIDS: RACE IN THE WAR ON DRUGS THAT WASN’T”
“America’s War on Drugs has played a profound role in reinforcing racial hierarchies. Although Black Americans are no more likely than Whites to use illicit drugs, they are 6–10 times more likely to be incarcerated for drug offenses. Helena B. Hansen, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at New York University, examines the recent history of White opioids to show how a very different system for responding to the drug use of Whites has emerged, in which addiction is treated primarily as a biomedical disease.
Meanwhile, more punitive systems that govern the drug use of people of color have remained intact. At this seminar, Dr. Hansen argues that public concern about White opioid deaths creates an opportunity to reorient U.S. drug policy toward public health for all—and make proven harm reduction strategies widely available.”
LINCOURT PHARMACY CLEARWATER, FLORIDA
UNDERSTANDING THE RACIAL ASPECTS OF THE OPIUM WARS ON CHINA
These tribulations are no different from what our forbearers experienced, Predatory Policingthat enforces Regulatory Racism. Therefore, it is not a matter of what you’re doing right, it is about putting you in your place. A place of eternal servitude, despair, and the maintenance of generational subjectivity (we are but low-hanging fruit). There is absolutely no evidence of diversion not in Pronto, At Cost, Superior Drug Pharmacy, Lincourt Pharmacy what interpretation that corresponding responsibility act as a cop and results in withholding of medications without putting anything in writing.
Lincourt Pharmacy of Clearwater, Florida has been in business for nearly 40 years. They are a specialty pharmacy in compounding sterile and non-sterile products and was doing over $15 million per year with sales all over the world. Louis Lassiter, who is the pharmacist-owner states that “his business dropped dramatically when the DEA came around and began targeting and harassing his wholesalers.” Let’s not be fooled. This the work of Susan Langston and demonstrates how the DEA begins to target Black Own Pharmacy Businesses.
DEA: THE INTIMIDATION AND CORRUPTION
“The US ‘War on Drugs’ has had a profound role in reinforcing racial hierarchies. Although Black Americans are no more likely than Whites to use illicit drugs, they are 6–10 times more likely to be incarcerated for drug offenses. Meanwhile, a very different system for responding to the drug use of Whites has emerged.” (3)(4)
THE DELIBERATE WRONGDOING EXPOSING DEA CORRUPTION THEIR INTIMIDATION OF WHOLESALERS
On August 29, 2019, a well-coordinated attack implemented by both the DEA and Florida Department of Health was waged on Pronto Pharmacy. Their actions were beyond the scope of service of a certified law enforcement agency. Upon entering, a DEA Agent is videotaped removing and disabling Pronto Pharmacy’s camera systems wherein they damaged and destroyed several articles of equipment. (10) (See below videos)
The process begins with DEA investigators like Richard Albert interfering with wholesalers, by calling and suggesting they close the merchant account of the targeted pharmacy, under the DEA’s “Know Your Customer Program.” In the case of Pronto Pharmacy, the wholesaler was Safe Chain Solutions. DI Albert instructed Safe Chain to close Pronto Pharmacy’s control medication account in June of 2019, making the products commercially unavailable to them. Therefore, Pronto Pharmacy continued its compounding in order to meet the demand of its patient base. (1)
Ms. Cheryl Elshaer saw a Pharmacy owned by a Black Family that had the capability of compounding control medications, (SHE DID A KAREN) and called the police (DEA). (2)
ABBIE DIVILIO SAFE CHAIN STATE REGULATION COORDINATOR
Ms. Divilio and the DEA worked together with the intent to undermine and destroy the business of Pronto Pharmacy, using distance travel from the physician’s office under know your customer program. Again, no such law exists in either the Federal and State statute.
Sometime in June 2019, Ms. Divilio made an onsite visit to Pronto Pharmacy and spoke with Pharmacist Guy Decker. Video recordings show Ms. Divilio stayed approximately 7.3 minutes. She examine no records, asked Mr. Decker one question, and reviewed no profiles. Approximately, a week later Pronto Pharmacy’s control medication account was closed. Ms. Divilio informed that they were concern regarding distance traveled between the physician’s office and Pharmacy.
35 AGENTS OF DEA RAID PRONTO PHARMACY AUGUST 29, 2019.
The DEA has learned the rewards are even better against a doctor, dentist, pharmacist, manufacturer, or hospital using RICO, and Justice Department intimidations. Further, the DEA has its own Court System ( that Operates as a Kangaroo Court) which does not adhere to Federal Rules of Civil Procedures. Their Judges answer solely to the head of the DEA.
We Demand hearings from Congress as the activity of the DEA affects the lives of all of America during this Covid pandemic by creating disparity and shortages and the majority of the times this has been done by race.
Yet it is clear that the DEA agents were operating in absence from the law whereby Richard Albert, testified on January 28, 2020, in a DEA Federal Court Hearing that he did not “Know or understand the law(s) or how any law apply to the practice of Pharmacy.” There is no evidence that any medication was being diverted. (6)
DEA Diversion Investigator Richard James Albert so entered the premises of Pronto Pharmacy LLC., based on an assumption that lead Pharmacist Norman J Clement, his family and those employed were illegally manufacturing Oxycodone and Hydromorphone based on suspicion and dispensing high doses of illegally controled prescriptions.
THE ECONOMIC LYNCHING OF OAK HILL PHARMACY OF OAK HILL, WEST VIRGINIA A BLACK-OWNED PHARMACY
In West Virginia, a state hard hit by the overdose crisis, the DEA raided and temporarily revoked a dispensing license for the Oak Hill Hometown Pharmacy in August 2019 until a federal court intervened. The pharmacy dispenses buprenorphine, and a federal judge agreed that DEA’s actions created barriers to lifesaving addiction treatment in an area with few providers. Martin Njoku, the pharmacy’s manager, said the license suspension and legal costs nearly put the pharmacy out of business. (2),(3),(4),(15),(16)
SO WHY IS OAK HILL PHARMACY STILL BEING PROSECUTED
Oak Hill Home Town Pharmacy, Oak Hill, WV owner Martin Mnjoku in business 15 years, raided August 6, 2019 “an imminent danger to the public health or safety”
Despite prevailing in the Federal District Court, the DEA pushes on against scientists and true medical experts to harass and prosecute Martin Ndjou, owner of Oak Hill Pharmacy. Repeatedly, the DEA has been found to have abused its authority. The agency has a history of human rights abuses, lavish payments to confidential informants, and surveillance of Americans with no suspected connection to illegal drug activities.
OAK HILL PHARMACY PREVAILED IN FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT
OAK HILL PHARMACY, OAK HILL WEST VIRGINIA
THE SAGA OF OAK HILL HOMETOWN PHARMACY IS THE SAGA OF THE BLACK-OWNED PHARMACY TARGETED FOR EXTINCTION
“WE ARE PHARMACISTS, NOT DRUG DEALERS“
These Black-owned pharmacies fall well within the foundation of the American System of Caste, “The Origins of Discontent,” described by author Isabelle Wilkerson, “where their degraded station justifies their degradation, as they are consigned to the lowest, dirtiest jobs and thus were seen as lowly and dirty and everyone in the caste system absorbed the message of their degradation.” (8)
“….BOTH HOUSE AND SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEES MUST GIVE OVERSIGHT, INVESTIGATE AND REORGANIZE THE DEA….”
Many of these Black-owned Pharmacies have been in business for more than 10 years.
In just the past 6 months at least 7 or more Black-owned Pharmacies have been attacked and classified as “Public Health Threats” and their Control Substance Registration suspended. See below Order to Show Cause Oak Hill Hometown Pharmacy
These Black-owned pharmacies are not public health threats nor imminent dangers. Yet had their certificate of registration was suspended (supposedly) for ignoring alleged red flags in filling narcotic analgesic medications.
AT COST PHARMACY TARGETED AS IMMINENT DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY
DEA TARGETING BLACK OWNED PHARMACY BUSINESSES IN FLORIDA
On January 7, 2020, owner Aaron Howard, PharmD, of At Cost Pharmacy, Fort Meyers, Florida, found himself surrounded by seven DEA agents ordering an Immediate Suspension of his Control Substance license and seizing his property. The order was signed by Acting DEA Chief Uttam DHilllion, who has in previous orders issued to other Black-owned pharmacies to be deemed “an imminent danger to public health and safety.”
Pharmacist, Aaron Howard, says, “this whole issue is based on an erroneous presumption of Red Flags…..that we are improperly dispensing control medications. This is totally ridiculous. We check all prescriptions in my pharmacy. I’ve been a pharmacist for more than 15 years and I am definitely not a “PILL MILL.”
Currently, the DEA is concentrating most of its efforts on small, non-white pharmacy establishments. But don’t be fooled, these actions are but the first salvo of a much larger picture. The intent is to destroy black people by systematically destroying those who provide healthcare services to those communities.
DEA, in their written complaint against Pronto Pharmacy and At Cost Pharmacy of Fort Myers, begin by categorizing non-white pharmacies as “Red Flags.” The DEA algorithm includes distance travel, paying cash, and excessive dosage. Each patient is then profiled as an abuser and
a federal criminal statute is assigned to them, their physician, nurse, pharmacist, dentist, and any other healthcare provider involved in their care with a spirit of impunity.
At Cost Pharmacy, Ft. Meyers, owner Aaron Howard in business 10 years, raided January 7, 2020 “an imminent danger to the public health or safety”, (see below Order to Show Cause At Cost Pharmacy Ft. Meyers, Fl.)
This search warrant was decrepitude in that it failed to illustrate and support the rudimentary descriptions defining Probable Cause. The investigator wrote, “Application having been made, and probable cause as defined by 21 U.S.C. § 880(d)(1) having been shown by the affidavit of Diversion Investigator Norita N. Persaud, United States Drug Enforcement Administration, for an inspection of the controlled premises of Aarric, Inc., dba At Cost Rx, 16970 San Carlos Boulevard, Suite 110, Fort Myers, FL 33908, with DEA number FA2125640, it appears that said inspection is appropriate under 21 U.S.C. § 880”. ah_1072020_aarric_dea_dsa-2“ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE AT COST PHARMACY” 01/03/2020
The investigator agent clearly expressed his limited knowledge of probable cause as defined by 21 U.S.C. § 880(d)(1). Yet, he did not, within the search warrant, describe the place to be searched and the descriptive elements to support and clearly identify any elements of a crime which would provide a reasonable officer to conclude that probable cause exist.
The signed warrant authorized the investigating Agent “to seize from the above-described controlled premises such of the following records, information, reports, documents, files and inventories, as are appropriate and necessary to the effective accomplishment of the inspection, and for the purpose of copying or verifying their correctness, or that are used or intended to be used in violation of the Controlled Substances Act whether in electronic or printed media format as noted above”. The Supreme Court has defined “probable cause” as an officer’s reasonable belief, based on circumstances known to that officer, that a crime has occurred or is about to occur. Carroll v. United States, 267 U.S. 132, 149 (1925).
GULF MED PHARMACY TARGETED AS IMMINENT DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY
Gulf Med Pharmacy, Cape Coral, Fl owner Ricardo Fertil in business 10 years, raided Nov 19, 2019, “an imminent danger to the public health or safety,”
ALL PRESCRIPTIONS ARE VALID
Pronto Pharmacy LLC, At Cost Pharmacy of Fort Myers, Fl, Gulf Med Pharmacy of Cape Coral, Florida, Oak Hill Pharmacy of Oak Hill, West Virginia to this date have neither violated nor broken any laws. All control medications in these pharmacies have been dispensed according to CSA guidelines, and all prescriptions filled by these pharmacies were legally written by licensed medical/dental practitioners.
According to Michael Krause Law Professor at the George Mason University, Scalia Law School, an article on December 27, 2021, Wall Street Journal titled, A Case Against Walmart Mocks Justice, “The federal government sues the chain for filling valid prescriptions in compliance with state law” (2)
” Under the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, when there’s a contradiction between valid federal and state law, the former prevails. But there’s no federal law requiring that Walmart pharmacists refuse to fill prescriptions that state law requires them to fill. The Controlled Substances Act creates only two circumstances in which pharmacists commit a federal crime by filling facially valid prescriptions for controlled substances.“
” First, if they “knowingly fill” a prescription that wasn’t issued by a doctor “in the usual course of professional treatment”—for instance, if a doctor hands out his entire Rx pad without examining any patient. Second, if they fill a prescription outside the “usual course of” pharmacy practice—for instance, if a “pill mill” dispenses opioids without checking the DEA number of the prescribing doctor. Not only isn’t Walmart being sued for such infractions; it has adopted innovative opioid-stewardship programs and worked with law enforcement agencies including the DEA to root out corrupt doctors.”
As written December 29, 2020, by the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board which was in a stark rebuke of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed in federal court in Delaware claims that:
” Walmart “failed to detect and report at least hundreds of thousands of suspicious orders” and that as a pharmacy it “unlawfully filled thousands upon thousands of invalid controlled-substance prescriptions.” These actions enabled opioid abuse and “helped fuel a national crisis,” the feds say. (1)
“The complaint further alleges:
“Violations of the Controlled Substances Act and its accompanying regulations, but it is really a 160-page exercise in scapegoating a company because it is well-known and has deep pockets. Walmart doesn’t push pills on opioid addicts. Its pharmacists fill valid prescriptions written by doctors who are licensed by their states and registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).” (1)
Similarly, in the actions of Pronto Pharmacy LLC, Tampa Florida the DOJ/ DEA has shown absolutely NO proof these prescriptions written by licensed practitioners and patients having been diagnosed with a disease condition are illegitimate. Neither the DOJ/DEA found any prescription medications were being diverted for non-medical use.
