Worse than the AIDS epidemic at its peak. Fatalities nearly double the global terrorism death toll. The “U.S. heroin crisis is so bad it’s raining ‘needles’.” In March 2017 alone, San Francisco collected 13,000 discarded syringes, compared with 2,900 in March 2016 (http://tinyurl.com/y8d8hy6a).

Annual opioid overdose deaths nearly tripled from 1999 (8,048) to 2011 (22,784) (JAMA 8/1/17). In 2016, there were 60,000 overdose deaths, according to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He did not break it down by drug. This is almost as many American deaths as in 12 years of the Vietnam War, writes Edwin Mora. Coroners are experiencing personnel shortages and equipment failures across the U.S. (http://tinyurl.com/y7s9b969).

President Trump has been rightfully demanding that aliens who are citizens of countries that have an involvement with terrorism must undergo “extreme vetting.”

The War on Drugs fails because the focus is on the drugs which have nothing to do with the transportion and sale of the illicit product.

When the focus shifts to those providing the political protection and actually profiting from the growth, production, transportation and sale of illegal drugs to America then we will get results and yes that includes the growers and processors in foreign countries.

Not before.
