They're All Wasted: Seattle's Liberal Drug Laws Have Bus Drivers Fearing For Their Lives

The Emerald City is going up in smoke again. It is widely known that enforcement for drug use in the Northwestern liberal haven is non-existent, where for years marijuana and heroin use were common sites (and smells) in public areas, but now that smoke is beginning to impact non-drug users.

Two years after Seattle officials let the city burn through BLM demonstrations, bus drivers explain they’re facing a frightful new danger: second-hand fentanyl fumes spread by addicts brazenly smoking the deadly synthetic drug on public transportation

.

“The signs are that they put their heads down and start watching for the flame,” King's County Metro bus driver Erik Christensen explained to KIRO 7 News. “After they inhale or ingest, they can comfortably pass out. And no one’s going to stop them.”

Seattle, like New York City, rarely arrests or prosecutes people in possession of tiny amounts of hard drugs, even if they’re using them in public. Smoking rather than injecting fentanyl, in the meantime, is gaining popularity.

The result is bad news for public transportation, drivers say.

Several bus drivers in Seattle told the outlet that they’ve been consumed by second-hand fentanyl, experiencing dizziness, headaches and different forms of impairment. Some grew so ill they were removed from their buses and taken to hospitals, the report declares.

Second-hand fentanyl smoke is “extremely dangerous,” stated Shoreline Paramedic Captain Gabe DeBay, “It’s the smoke from the pill that has not been inhaled.”

Christensen announced his attempts to raise awareness for the matter have fallen on deaf ears with Metro management.

“I’m not asking for much,” he stated. “I’m asking to be involved with something that’s affecting my health, my mental well-being, and my passengers' health and well-being. And I’m being told no."

“This is personal now. This is about the people, the passengers.”

Jim Ferrell, the mayor of Federal Way and a former King County prosecuting attorney who’s now running to become King County’s next prosecutor, drafted a groundbreaking ordinance specifically banning smoking fentanyl or different opioids on public buses, trains, and other confined public spaces in Federal Way. Ferrell explained to KIRO 7 the ordinance was a direct response to the investigation aired in February. It’s the only ordinance of its kind anywhere in the state, and it passed the City Council on Tuesday, May 3, unanimously.

“We need to make sure that people that come and go from Federal Way and drivers that come and go are safe,” he announced. “When we get a 911 call either from a rider or a driver, or anyone that’s aware of this dangerous and reckless behavior, our police can come in and intervene and make sure that we can remove that person from a bus.”
