"It's Like A Zombie Apocalypse Walking Into Parts Of San Francisco": Addict's Mother Decries

San Francisco's leniency on drugs is filling the street with lawlessness, according to the mom of a 32-year-old drug addict, who's urging policymakers to enforce stricter laws that criminalize drug use and sales in the city.

"[Police] are on the streets and they're not arresting anybody and the dealers are selling right in front of them," Jacqui Berlinn said in an interview with California Insider, a show with The Epoch Times.

"They allow the addicts to use in front of other people... Other people who live there can openly see the addict's using needles and smoking ... acting out in the ways that are harmful to them or the public."

Berlinn said her son is suffering from a fentanyl addiction, which has left him homeless and physically bent at a 45-degree angle.

"A lot of people say, you have to let him hit rock bottom," Berlinn said.

"My son's rock bottom I believe is death. Right now, he needs to be coerced to get help because his fear of the withdrawals from this drug are so great."

Berlinn's son was introduced to drugs as a teenager and he became addicted after suffering from anxiety and depression.

Nowadays, Berlinn's son wanders the streets between Oakland and San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood since drugs are more accessible there.

In the past, Berlinn traveled throughout the Tenderloin neighborhood in search of her son, and she described the area as a "zombie apocalypse" with drug dealers on the corners of the street accompanied by homeless drug addicts.
