Why is there a war on drugs, now that a drugs epidemic hits whites? Why is the white drugs problem seen as victimization. While black drug epidemic was seen as criminal activity. To which they had to toughen up?

Story highlights

New Hampshire is in the midst of a heroin epidemic


The state has a unique megaphone with presidential candidates, who are focusing on the issue Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN)"I thought he was dead," Jeannine Metivier said as she led police officers to the security camera footage. "He had his head backwards and he was blue, he was all blue."

It was a recent Friday night just after 7 p.m. and the Manchester police department was responding to its 13th overdose call of the week at a local restaurant.

Metivier, the general manager, said the young man was able to recover enough to leave before the police or the ambulance could arrive. She said she'd never seen anything like it but knew how widespread drug addiction has become.

"It's all we've been hearing," she said.

According to the state's bureau of Emergency Medical Services the life saving anti-overdose drug Naloxone (commonly known as Narcan) has been administered by the county in more than 2,000 incidents in 2015.


Growing addiction to opiates and opioids like heroin and fentanyl is not unique to New Hampshire, but every four years its residents have an unusual megaphone as the first-in-the-nation primary rolls around. This year they are putting the issue of addiction front and center -- whether questioning candidates about their policies at a town hall or sharing their own personal stories.


"This ranks among the most intense in terms of how much voters' feelings about a personal issue have moved upwards, have shot upwards, to the presidential level," Dante Scala, a political science professor at the University of New Hampshire told CNN.

According to an October survey from the University of New Hampshire and WMUR, a quarter of Granite Staters think drug abuse is the most important problem facing the state, the first time in eight years that a plurality think an issue is more important than jobs and the economy. The epidemic reaches across all demographics and nearly half of those surveyed say they know someone who has abused heroin.

Because Albinos are degenerate.
