Death Penalty for Drug Dealers? Be Careful What You Wish For, President Trump

• http://thegarrisoncenter.org, Thomas L. Knapp

"If we don't get tough on the drug dealers," said Trump, "we're wasting our time. That toughness includes the death penalty."

An odd take, considering that one of Trump's few worthwhile campaign promises was to leave the legal status of marijuana up to the states. That promise should have been kept, and extended to other drugs as well. Instead, he turned Jeff "good people don't smoke marijuana" Sessions loose as Attorney General, to the country's injury.

Even more odd, coming as it does from a high-level drug dealer like Donald Trump.

You know, the owner of Trump Winery. And, as of his 2016 campaign financial disclosures, a shareholder in multiple conspiracies to manufacture and traffic in drugs (including opiates) — to wit, Pfizer, Merck, Celgene, and GlaxoSmithKline.
