Trump Admin pushing longer sentences for Pushers. Ineffectual. Jail isn't the answer to the Heroin epidemic
The war on drugs is utterly useless and expensive. It should be a war on Drug Addiction! Forget supply. Address demand!
Jail only takes suppliers off the street and does nothing to address Demand! With high demand another dealer takes their place.
One of the ways to reduce demand to end Heroin use and addiction is to stop the use of Codeine (Oxycontin etc.) prescriptions, which is the gateway drug to Heroin and prescribe Medical Marijuana.

Cannabinoids in various combination depending on strain, can regulate our immune system, relieve pain, migraines, seizures (High CBD Charlotte's web strain) cure MS and there is even a Cannabis strain that stops cancer.
Marijuana is non-addictive and can even cure Heroin addiction.
The people of the USA would be much better served if Marijuana is taken off Schedule 1 and recognized officially by the Federal government. Canada, Israel and other countries are already legalizing medical marijuana.
