Trump To Push Death Penalty For Major Drug Dealers In Opioid Plan

Trump To Push Death Penalty For Major Drug Dealers In Opioid Plan

Through such measures, the administration claims they will be able to curb opioid prescriptions by 33% in the next three years, and eventually end the crisis entirely.

While Trump this month repeatedly suggested using the death penalty to deter drug dealers and traffickers - an idea roundly opposed by public health advocates - many lawmakers have said they weren't sure whether to take the idea seriously.

"I haven't looked at it relative to the president's proposal, but I have looked at it over the years with the frustration that US attorneys sometimes face where they can get a whole bunch of the henchmen for murder, but they can't get the kingpin for something that's more than you know, 20 years, 10 years, or less", he added.

Tiffany holiday quarter results beat estimates
Following the transaction, the senior vice president now owns 10,813 shares of the company's stock , valued at $1,187,159.27. Also, SVP Philippe Galtie sold 24,758 shares of Tiffany & Co. stock in a transaction that occurred on Monday, January 22nd.

"If the president would support it, I am very open to hearing it", Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) said. "Just wanted you to know that before we started this meeting"?" The White House press office also did not confirm the information.

Before the president's plan could be put into effect, the proposal will first need to be approved by Congress - a task that could prove to be a significant hurdle, both ideologically and financially, with billions of dollars in proposed programs and law-enforcement efforts included in the initiative.

Last August, it was reported that Trump called New Hampshire "a drug-infested den" during a January 2017 conversation with the Mexican president.
