President Donald Trump along with First Lady Melania Trump will speak later today in New Hampshire about his plan to combat the country’s opioid epidemic which includes the death penalty for high-volume drug traffickers. Trump’s plan will focus on three areas: law enforcement, prevention, and education. Congress has appropriated $6 billion to accomplish this plan. Trump has been outspoken about the death penalty for drug traffickers in the past in the past, but this will be the first time it will be part of an official administration plan. The punishment is aimed at high-level drug traffickers who are bringing in large amounts of opioids, particularly fentanyl, into the United States. Officials want to make it clear that these punishments will not be enforced on low-level possessions or other recreational drugs. Treatment advocates have pushed back saying there is no way the United States can punish its way out of the opioid epidemic. In addition to capital punishments, Trump’s plan also includes a federally back advertising campaign to prevent people from considering using opioids as well as funding for more treatment centers.
