- Morphine and other opioids have been commonly used to treat severe pain.
- Prior to its criminalization, Heroin was a common prescription medication called diacetylmorphine, which is processed into regular morphine by the body.
- The DEA criminalized diacetylmorphine, creating a massive black market which inflated its street price, and the DEA’s budget.
- Oxycontin was created by Big Pharma as a pharmaceutical alternative to the now-illegal diacetylmorphine (heroin). Oxycontin was designed as a slow-release version of morphine and diacetylmorphine.
- With Oxycontin being available, heroin sales on the black market plummeted.
- Oxycontin was likewise classified as a controlled substance by the DEA, raising the price of heroin again.
- Fentanyl was created as a synthetic opioid many times stronger than diacetylmorphine or Oxycontin. It is occasionally prescribed to treat severe pain, particularly after surgeries.
- Fentanyl has flooded the black market in the United States through China and Mexico, supplanting heroin.
- The DEA’s actions over time demonstrate that they need to keep the market flooded with drugs in order to keep increasing their budget and justifying their own existence.

I know that you have been talking a lot about the Fentanyl crisis in America. It’s something we’ve been covering a lot on this show. And the Biden administration is seems very disinterested in doing anything about it. If they cared about the Fentanyl crisis that’s killing millions 1000s of Americans, they would secure our border for starters, but they’re not.
Yeah, so I think let me just sort of give the, I’m going to sort of distill this down to the essential points here. First of all, we need to understand the history of this entire crisis. So if you go back to 1913, is when the FDA was founded in 1970, is when the Controlled Substances Act was put to put into place by the Nixon administration. And at that same point is when the DEA was created. And there was a very interesting drug, which was like aspirin that had been used even before the FDA called diacetyl. Morphine. You’ve heard of morphine, right? Well, diacetylmorphine was essentially taking the morphine and attaching to acetyl groups. And that had been used, believe it or not, you know, very, very few people would use it, like aspirin, there wasn’t all this rampant addiction, and it was used for pain. So that’s sort of the background. Now, when the DEA gets created in 1970, guess what they do, they do something quite interesting. They declare that diacetylmorphine, which was used for chronic pain by Americans for many, many years, even before 1913, was essentially now a schedule one substance that even doctors could not prescribe. Alright, so all these people with chronic pain, we were like aspirin, they were using diacetyl morphine, which is essentially morphine. But with two diacetyl groups, which means when you take it essentially becomes morphine. And then they rebranded that
substance as heroin. So it’s the first time I think, ever they’ve taken a generic and they branded it as heroin. So now suddenly, heroin has this halo effect, and people have to go to the streets to get it. So it literally created a product on the streets. And the DEA starts explosively growing, this becomes so called this drug that no one should be taking when if you really look at it was diacetylmorphine, which had existed for many, many years. So more so heroin use is explosively growing people and by the way, you can get morphine for very cheap heroin, which is this exact same thing as diacetylmorphine as morphine is selling for 1000 times more. So drug dealers are making a ton of money. And, you know, heroin sales are explosively growing. Then something very, very interesting happens. You know, probably Purdue pharma, which was started by the Sacklers, they put out a drug called oxy cotton, right? And oxycodone or Oxycontin, which is there’s there’s the same drug one is a time release version of it, which slowly released to you take two pills, and oxycodone. And interestingly enough, even though I’m not a big promoter of Big Pharma, Oxycontin was heavily tested, it went through clinical trials, people figured out the right dosage thing. And it was for chronic pain and doctors were essentially offering that guess what happens when oxycontin comes out? Heroin sales, literally plot heroin on the street plummets by 50% Because now doctors could actually offer patients something for chronic pain. 60% of the people were using diacetylmorphine, aka heroin, were using it because they actually add chronic pain. So now they could go to their doctors and legally get it prescribed. So heroin sales plummet drastically. And these are the connections people can make for themselves. In fact, SAMSA which is the government under the Biden administration of the drug organization, they you know, heroin sales went down to 10 cents a bag, okay? Because oxycodone people could go legitimately from their doctors and get it. However, because heroin because oxycodone now threatened heroin sales, and we should do some investigative research on this, we can talk more, suddenly, there’s this huge public outcry against Oxycontin, Oxycontin, and, and, in fact, many many hospitals. In fact, it becomes a schedule two drug and doctors are can only prescribe it through pain centers. So now guess what happens? The sales of people can’t get, you know, those people with chronic pain can’t go to these pain centers. And suddenly there’s a new drug introduced called fentanyl. Okay, and fentanyl is sort of the heroin version 2.0 or essentially it is the alternative to OxyContin and you see, a 50% less use of oxycodone, and fentanyl sales start exploding because that is an illegal drug. Remember if fentanyl is typically given to people after surgery during this very short period of time, doctors really can’t prescribe it. Well, fentanyl comes, it’s manufactured in China. It comes over to Mac sicko, and into the United States, and typically take they take the fentanyl and mix it in with other stuff. It’s only been recently that the United States government went after China. But now fentanyl was actually made in Mexico and brought in. But if you really look at this entire arc, you had diacetylmorphine, which has existed for about a over 100 years, which is used like aspirin, by people for chronic pain. And because of the DEA is policy, suddenly diacetylmorphine becomes illegal. A schedule one drug doctors can’t even prescribe it. So people start moving to heroin on the streets. So it makes sense. And so, so that movement of everyday people trying to go get it on the streets, and they’re essentially there’s this big halo effect when Morphine diacetylmorphine is essentially morphine with two acetyl groups when you take care when in the body just dissipates into morphine, because there are a number of people with chronic pain. oxycontin calms or Oxycontin. Same thing with the time release version, a very, very valuable drug drug doctors were able to prescribe it in particular ways. Yes, there were some misuse but turns out it’s only about 4%. It was a lot of hype around this, but that hype, and then the attack on oxycodone literally created the gateway for fentanyl sales. And now fentanyl is like the new oxycontin isn’t like the new heroin on the streets and fentanyl sales have exploded. And Oxycontin, as I just said, give you some statistics. 30,000 people and this is from SAMSA allegedly died of overdose every year in the early 90s. Today, over 100,000 people allegedly die from drug overdose from fentanyl. But this is really misguided policies in my view of the DA. And you can also look during this period from the 70s to today. Anyone can just google see how explosively the D A ‘s budget has grown during this period. So D A’s budget has grown and you have more people now dying of drug overdose. It doesn’t make any sense at all.
Yeah, it certainly doesn’t. We’ll have to we’ll have to take a deeper dive into this because it really does show how Big Pharma has been so complicit over over the decades and getting millions and millions and millions of people hooked on these poisonous drugs. Dr. Shiva, we’ll have you back again to have another deep dive on all this really appreciate that insight.
Good. Thank you be well. Have a good day. Thanks.
Coming up next, we have more on but thank you so much, Doctor. How’s it going?
Great. Thank you. You’re welcome. So Texas with their little
babies more on
