In USA, fatal drug overdoses, particularly by opioid pain killers, is an increasingly common cause of death. In 2015, over 33,000 people in USA died of an opioid overdose, more than any earlier year.[1] This trend has continued. From 1999-2019, around 400,000 people died of opioid overdose in USA.[2]

Clandestine assassinations

Lack of evidence as to peoples intent when taking drugs, and the possible clandestine (or posthumous) administration of drugs allow fatal drug overdoses to be used to mask assassinations.
