(Courtesy of Perry County Sheriff’s Office) A shocking public service announcement is warning everyone not to pick up folded money that you might find on the floor in public places such as gas stations.
The paper bills could be lethal envelopes carrying deadly fentanyl , which can kill with just one dose.
The Perry County Sheriff ’s Office in Tennessee recently found two instances of folded paper bills in gas stations. Inside was a white, powdery substance that tested positive for methamphetamine and fentanyl.
Posting a picture online, the Sheriff stated: “This is very dangerous, folks! Please share and educate your children to not pick up the money.
“I personally plan to push for legislation for a bill that would intensify the punishment, if someone is caught using money as a carrying pouch for such poison.” (Courtesy of Perry County Sheriff’s Office) They added: “It enrages me as a father and the sheriff, that people can act so carelessly and have no regard for others wellbeing, especially a child. I hope we find the ones responsible.”
This potentially deadly find is another symptom of the surge in fentanyl flooding into America from across its southern border in what some analysts are calling an “ undeclared war ” by China levelled against the United States.
Chemical ingredients shipped in from overseas to Mexico are then processed into fentanyl and smuggled in-country by drug cartels .
Recent months have seen unprecedented volumes of fentanyl seizures. In July, DEA agents seized about 1 million fake pills containing fentanyl in Los Angeles, the largest ever drug seizure in California’s history.

In 2020, the yearly number of deaths from fentanyl spiked […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
