Mail order drugs are flooding Ashtabula County, not the medical world

Mail order drugs are flooding Ashtabula County, not the medical world. That’s what Trumbull-Ashtabula Group drug task force officials say about fentanyl, a pharmacuetical drug 100 times stronger than morphine, believed to be coming in through mail to drug traffickers looking to build a reputation as having “the best dope.” People are able to go online and order it from countries like India, Afghanistan and China, where they don’t have the same level of controls. Ohioans are dying from overdoses at the second highest rate in the country, and local legislators are pushing for a solution.
