Montana AG calls on Biden to classify fentanyl as a WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION
09/22/2022 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen and 17 other state attorneys general recently sent a letter to President Joe Biden demanding that the administration declare fentanyl a weapon of mass destruction. They called on the Biden administration to take "decisive action" in response to the record-breaking increase in overdose deaths related to fentanyl.

That decisive action requires the Department of Homeland Security and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to coordinate a unified response with other federal agencies against the influx of fentanyl. Knudsen even suggested that the Department of Defense may be necessary. (Related: Critical Disclosure with Jim White: Montana AG blames Biden's disastrous border policies for influx of illegal drugs – Brighteon.TV.)

"Treating this solely as a narcotics control problem has failed to curb the proliferation of increasing quantities of chemicals that can cause a mass casualty event," read the letter. "Your own DEA Administrator has called fentanyl 'the deadliest threat [the DEA] has ever seen.' We should treat is as such – thus bold action must be taken."

The letter cited fentanyl's low cost of production, lethality and vast availability as to why it has become an ideal weapon of choice for bad actors.

Knudsen was joined by the attorneys general of Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. The attorney general of the territory of Guam also signed on to the letter.


Of the attorneys general, 14 are Republicans and three are Democrats. The attorney general of Guam is a political independent.

Montana experienced an "overnight" epidemic of fentanyl overdoses

In an interview with Breitbart, Knudsen called fentanyl "the biggest threat to Montana and probably the country."

"The rationale is that Montana has absolutely been flooded with this poison," he added. "Our confirmed fentanyl deaths have absolutely skyrocketed, our investigations have absolutely skyrocketed."

The Montana Department of Justice reported that from 2017 to 2021, the number of overdose deaths linked to fentanyl surged by 1,100 percent. By May this year, Montana already had 34 confirmed overdose deaths involving fentanyl – and the figure is still on the rise.

"You can tell when a new bad shipment has hit the state or an area of the state because we'll have a rash of overdoses," said Knudsen, highlighting the strain the influx of fentanyl to the state has placed on emergency services and law enforcement. He added that opioid overdoses have become the leading cause of death for adults aged 18 to 45, and many of those overdoses are linked to fentanyl.

"It's the number one product that the cartels are pushing here," said Knudsen, noting that states like Montana have had to shoulder the burden of drug enforcement and immigration efforts due to Biden's refusal to take action on these issues.

"Look at a state like Texas that just appropriated $4 billion for its own border enforcement – a job the federal government is supposed to be doing."

Knudsen added that the problem with drugs is linked to illegal immigration and both should not be treated as separate issues.

"We know where 100 percent of these illicit drugs in the fentanyl trade are coming from, and [federal officials] are not doing their job. This is not long division," he said. "A lot of us talk. This is not just a Montana thing by any stretch of the imagination."
