Inside the Fentanyl Crisis: What No Parent Should Ever See

Michael Brown

Director for Counter Narcotics Technology


Fentanyl is the bullet, but it's the cartels that are pointing the gun at our children and pulling the trigger.

In today's episode, we are honored to have Jaime Ignacio Puerto Gonzales, President of V.O.I.D. "Victims of Illicit Drugs" and Co-Chair of "Facing Fentanyl Now" joining to shed some light on the far-reaching impact of fentanyl and the legislative and societal challenges that have hindered efforts to combat this deadly substance.

Jaime, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, shares his personal journey and the heart-wrenching loss of his son, Daniel, to fentanyl poisoning on April 6, 2020.  As he delves into his advocacy work and the mission of V.O.I.D., we gain valuable insights into the deceitful tactics of drug cartels, the need for legislative reform, and the urgent call for awareness and collaboration on a global scale.

Join us as we discuss: 

  • Social media and its role in fentanyl distribution 
  • How Proposition 47 and 57 are impacting law enforcement and public safety in California
  • The impact of harm reduction groups addressing the fentanyl crisis
  • The role that schools and educational institutions can play in raising awareness about fentanyl and preventing its distribution among young people
