Are you selling heroin, fentanyl or carfentanil in Lorain County? Do you think drug dealing is too lucrative of a business for you to retire from? If so, then you really ought to read this article because as of October, anyone who is drug dealing (opioids) in Lorain County will be facing Federal prosecution.
In July of 2018, the Department of Justice & U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions announced the formation of Operation Synthetic Opioid Surge (S.O.S.). The sole goal of S.O.S. is to detect, uncover, dismantle and disrupt drug distribution supply chains in an effort to curb the growing number of overdose deaths linked to heroin, fentanyl and carfentanil use. The primary method in order to achieve the slated goal is via an aggressive new action that makes every single opioid drug trafficking case a Federal crime. This is done by removing the jurisdiction from the state level and making it enforceable on the federal level.
As a result of the new laws enacted, individuals who choose to distribute will now be facing far greater sentences than if they were prosecuted under local state jurisdiction. Those who are prosecuted under federal law will also have extreme difficulty posting or receiving a bond, will more than likely be shipped to a prison out of state and will quickly get acquainted with the federal sentencing guidelines.
COBRA Says: Anyone who thinks they can get away without eventually getting caught is in for a big ass surprise. The federal government is going to be handing out 100-200 man indictments with a 80% rat rate which will translate into huge sweeps taking place across the county. You better retire immediately after reading this…
Watch As The F.B.I Declares War on Lorain County
In a short video published just days ago the F.B.I (and other government agencies, DEA, etc.) officially declared war on all drug dealers peddling opioids in Lorain County.
Federal Sentencing Guidelines
Federal sentencing guidelines are complex and are stacked extremely against the defendant. The length of a sentence is based on an individuals prior criminal history which is done through a “category” and “level” system. The greater the amount of priors, the higher the category and level – which equates to a higher guideline range for sentencing. For those who have repeat convictions for the same crime, they will be looking at the possibility of being labeled as a career criminal – which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years. This by the way doesn’t even include any time for the actual crime committed. It should be noted that the federal courts also do not run sentences concurrent.
Fun Fact: Anyone who snitches on another in their case when being sentenced in the fed’s will be marked as a rat before they even arrive to their prison. They will be labeled on paper as a MCK-5, their paperwork will show a downward departure and more than likely be available in the inmate library on LexusNexus. If those don’t reveal a rat, then the corrections officers will. In any case, it will be a long and rough road for the drug dealer moving forward.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions
An official statement by AG Sessions. Read the full entirety of the press release on the Department of Justice’s Website.
“We at the Department of Justice are going to dismantle these deadly fentanyl distribution networks. Simply put, we will be tireless until we reduce the number of overdose deaths in this country. We are going to focus on some of the worst counties for opioid overdose deaths in the United States, working all cases until we have disrupted the supply of these deadly drugs,” Attorney General Sessions said. “In 2016, synthetic opioids killed more Americans than any other kind of drug. Three milligrams of fentanyl can be fatal–that’s not even enough to cover up Lincoln’s face on a penny. Our prosecutors in Manatee County, Florida have shown that prosecuting seemingly small synthetic opioids cases can have a big impact and save lives, and we want to replicate their success in the districts that need it most. Operation S.O.S.—and the new prosecutors who will help carry it out—will help us put more traffickers behind bars and keep the American people safe from the threat of these deadly drugs.”
What Do You Think?
Do you think the new laws will make a difference? Do you think it will deter anyone from continuing to sell these highly addictive and extremely dangerous drugs? Do you think that this isn’t going to make any impact at all? Or maybe you think it will just make a slight difference? Either way, vote below!

The Bottom Line: This is going to take a while to really resonate with any drug dealers. Individuals are under the impression that the federal prison system is soft and better than state prison, little do they know that the commissary is far worse, the politics are intense and if you have any blemish on your record (ratting or in the wrong gang, such as the heartless felons) you can expect to be checked in the second you step foot on most compounds. Once word starts to get sent back about the insane sentencing’s and the “not so sweet” bids, people might start to take the change seriously.
SCUMBAGGED Tip: If you’re selling drugs it’s really time to retire. You could and would have made more money flipping burgers over the next decade than you would have made selling drugs. The federal government will seize every single thing you and your family owns… You’ve been warned.
