That's it, Tommy Boy, bring that military bearing to the fore. Show Greenberg how tough you are.

They could pass a law that says any illegal possession of fentanyl carries a life sentence and it wouldn't make a difference. The supply isn't the problem. The demand is the issue. Pure market forces at work. Reduce demand for the drug and there won't be any profit in the supply side.

Many liberals favor legalizing of all drugs.

They are the same ones who see no difference between a firecracker and a stick of dynamite.

Mac, you are mistaking liberals for libertarians. I am a card carrying liberal, and I don't know anyone in our union that favors legalizing narcotics, cocaine, meth, etc.

I agree that something should be done about fentanyl and other drugs that take lives.

However, get Tom Cotton out of office! I don't care if he is replaced by a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or any other party. I just want Cotton out because he is a Trump puppet,arrogant little a**hole!

Drug abuse is a behavioral issue that can't be solved via punishment. The "War on Drugs" is a failure yet we continue to waste limited resources at problem. We need a paradigm shift, not more legislation.

GMac, I prefer to call myself an American but would probably be considered a "liberal" by those clinging to the past. Time to evolve bubba, or become extinct.

Using YOUR logic, we punish murderers but each year murders continue.

The traffickers are not the ones that should receive death, it is the folks the traffickers are trafficking for that should receive the death penalty. The trafficker should be given timed served if he or she leads the successful arrest of the ones who are at the top.
