    Why is it that cops need a hazmat suit and report only mild effects from touching trace amounts of fentanyl but drug dealers with no t-shirts on sweating in an 85 degree room while they’re breaking down a kilo of fent aren’t dropping dead everywhere from heavy exposure? Donald Trump should actually want dealers to possess fent because that would be the death sentence he wants for them, right? Unless fentanyl is harmless and doesn’t kill.
