    The US introduced legislation called STOP! back in March that all incoming parcels had to be fully trackable as a way of tackling fentanyl trafficking from their good friend China.
    Clearly can’t stop it all but Australia would be wish to do similar.

    Alexander’ father isn’t mentioned anywhere in the ABC article. Nor here.
    Alexander was a good boy, described here, very nicely, despite being a dope grower. Alexander looks like a girl. Looked. Alexander died more than a year ago.
    The ABC is very interested in children like Alexander.
    It’s all Snapchat’ (whatever that is) fault.

    I thought of all those things too, Ted.
    Why was your boy doing heavy drugs, mum?

    And where’s dad?

    From the linked article:

    “Alexander was a big chicken. If it was back-alley scariness, he wouldn’t have tried it,” she said.

    So Snapchat is, in Mom’s opinion, a fine and dandy SAFE purchasing option for drugs.

    She actively encouraged his “experimentation” but it’s the evil social media platform that’s to blame.

    My guess is that she is incapable of accepting her role in his death and this advocacy consumes her life to the point she has no time or space to confront it.

    How about you raising kids with the skills to resist drugs? Too hard?

    So Alexander the junkie has a nasty mum and no visible dad? Sad.

    Darn wall fell down in Melbourne during the earthquake, let’s sue the brick supplier!
