U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to crack down on those drug dealers causing the opioid-addiction epidemic by imposing long prison sentences. It’s about time.
Those drug companies fueling the opioid epidemic keep producing as much fentanyl and Oxycontin as they can sell even though they know a large percentage is going to the illegal black market. Putting the executives making those decisions in jail for a long time will definitely stop the overproduction of these legal prescription drugs.
The drug company executives are making political contributions using part of the large profits made selling the legal prescription drugs to the illegal black market. Sessions can also start clawing back the ill-gotten gains from illegal opioid sales from politicians’ super PACs. This money can be used to help the victims of the opioid drug trade overcome their addictions.
What did you say? Sessions doesn’t want to go after the kingpins running the opioid drug trade? He really wants to impose long prison sentences on the addicts who have been victimized by the kingpins and have to sell small quantities of fentanyl and Oxycontin to be able to afford some for themselves?
Never miss a local story.
How is that making America great again?
