Opioid Crisis – Does it Include the Death Penalty?

The Trump plan to combat the opioid crisis is still being worked on in the White House.

Death penalty proposed for drug dealers who sold opioids

Trump plans to reveal the plan soon, which could be as early as next week

There is a growing problem in America with the opioid tragedy and Trump wants to include more money for treatment programs so people struggling with addictions can receive the care they need, this would be extended into the prison system.

The plan doesn’t just include funding for treatment but also for harsher penalties like a Justice Department task force that would crack down on the sale of opioids on the Internet.  These penalties might even include the death penalty for these dealers.

The fine print isn’t out yet but the position that is being considered is, if the selling of opioids is directly linked to the death of an individual, harsh measure for that drug dealer could be enforced

Trump has previously mentioned several times that giving a drug dealer the death penalty is an option that is being looked at.

In Pennsylvania, Trump said that he asked Singapore about their “zero-tolerance policy” towards drug dealers.

“What does that mean?” Trump said, replaying his conversation. “‘That means if we catch a drug dealer – death penalty.'”

Trump went on to say “I think it’s a discussion we have to start thinking about. I don’t know if we’re ready, I don’t know if this country’s ready for it.”

This is a serious and everything is being looked at to solve the problem.
