Trump Announces Plans to Impose Death Penalty for Drug Dealers

El presidente Trump anunció oficialmente sus planes de imponer la pena de muerte para los traficantes de drogas en New Hampshire el lunes.

Estados Unidos se encuentra en medio de una crisis de opioides. Eso no es secreto. Según el Instituto Nacional sobre el Abuso de Drogas, se estima que 115 estadounidenses mueren de una sobredosis cada día. Eso es casi 42,000 personas por año y en 2016 fue tan alto como 67,000 personas. Esos son números que no deben ser ignorados. Sin embargo, lo que tampoco debe ignorarse es el hecho de que 80% de los adictos a la heroína se vuelven adictos a los medicamentos recetados legalmente recetados antes de recurrir a la heroína como una alternativa más barata y más fácilmente disponible.

Opioid Addiction

La Asociación Médica Americana ha definido la adicción como una enfermedad. Está científicamente comprobado que el abuso crónico cambia la química del cerebro y afecta la fuerza de voluntad, la capacidad de razonar y la conciencia de elección de una persona.

That’s significant because nearly one-third of all drug dealers admitted to selling drugs only as a way to support their habit. In other words, one-third of all drug dealers suffer from the disease of addiction. A disease, in most cases, is caused by doctors handing out pharmaceutical drugs like candy. Now the government is saying that because you suffer from a disease, you don’t deserve to live. It’s barbaric at worst and lunatic at best to think that the death penalty is a viable solution to America’s drug problem.

There’s a reason that the death penalty is referred to as capital punishment, it is, after all, the ultimate punishment. We are talking about stripping people of their lives. I want you to hear what I’m saying, we are talking about killing people because we don’t know how to deal with them. Because they have a problem that we, as a society, created but don’t know how to fix. And we aren’t even trying.

Fentanyl Issues

Maybe it’s time we start asking why Fentanyl is still even on the market, why doctors keep getting away with pushing opioid prescriptions, and why America’s public school system has failed its children so badly that they believe that selling drugs is the only way out of poverty. Maybe it’s time we started pointing fingers in a different direction.
