Drug experts respond to Trump's call for executing dealers

President Trump raised some eyebrows last month in a speech where he discussed how to tackle the nation's opioid epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioids have killed more than 500,000 people since 2000. Part of Trump's proposed plan, which he laid out before a supportive crowd, involves making high-volume drug traffickers subject to the death penalty. He referred to "big pushers, the ones who are really killing people."

Attorney general's stand on marijuana raises concerns for users

When U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced at the beginning of the year that he was directing federal prosecutors to use their own discretion in dealing with marijuana users, people throughout Maryland and other states who legally use marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes were understandably concerned.

Baltimore police officers at center of drug investigation

Sometimes the people who get caught up in criminal investigations and end up facing charges are those whose duty it is to enforce the law.

Federal prosecutions at 20-year low, but that's about to change

The Pew Research Center just released a very interesting analysis of recent trends in federal prosecutions.

Today, the Justice Department is prosecuting drug charges, property offenses, immigration violations and other crimes at the lowest level in 20 years -- while at the same time, crime itself is at the lowest rate since 2006.

Mexican wall may not keep out drug traffickers

One the signature promises of the Trump Campaign was the construction of a border wall along the southern border with Mexico. The details on the wall were noticeably sparse however it appears the Administration is taking concrete steps to secure the southern border. The Administration is allocating funds for border security and increasing the number of border agents. But, it appears that the wall overlooks critical sources of illegal immigration and may not slow the flow of drug trafficking over the border.
