'Better enforcement on illegal drugs'

Print Article

Government control of opioids isn't the answer.

It must be decided how many deaths are caused by legal overdose when doctors prescribe them to those who really need them and how many deaths are caused by illegal street drugs which today is a real problem.

Street traffic of illegal sales of drugs needs to be controlled by local and nationwide authorities.

Law enforcement must crack down on these street drugs availability, which today is running rampant.

Also, the doctors who prescribe opioids after their patients had surgery for pain need to be more careful and how long they keep them on it.

If the government puts straight controls on opioids the people who really need them and don't abuse it will suffer.

The street drugs will still be a real problem. Law enforcement must do a better job of controlling known activities of these drug dealers and put a stop to illegal drugs that are coming into our country from outside our borders.
