One America’s Thomas Chesy has more on the impact of the INTERDICT Act.

  • Donald York

    pResident Obama was(and is), a deceiver. He used fancy words and a cocky attitude to swoon his liberal, Socialist base. President Trump is an action President who actually loves serving the American people, and, keeping drugs off the streets. Thank you President Trump.

  • uncommon sense

    The take out the SEE-EYE-AY cartel’s competition act.

  • Keela

    A war actually worth fighting would be for US to invade Mexico…overthrow the corrupt govt…annihilate the drug cartels. And then maintain a presence there to keep it in line. Screw the Middle East. They won’t get near as much heroin to the US without crossing the southern border. We don’t need their oil anymore either. And then the Mexican people can have a better place to live and stay. Just a thought.

  • All American

    Heart wrenching but thank God that you and your two kids had the courage to make it through🙏🏻

  • All American

    Build the wall and shoot to kill anyone that unlawfully breaks over, under or through the barrier. Put guard towers with armed and able to shoot if necessary!

  • RW Stevens

    Rampid ignorance from the junkies mom – ‘god loves you so do your drugs’. Hey mom Sue, and all the other mom Sue fools out there, we need you to land somewhere south of the border so we can end this safe-zone for druggies country policy. The first words from a mother to her child should be “Death Penalty For Illegal Drug Possesion, Life Without Parole for Testing Positive” – Problem fixed! Another aspect of your idiothood would be your use of “recovered” vs “recovering” – go ask ur junkie babies what that means.

    Drug dealers and addicts should be relocated to camps somewhere in the deep desert and kept there until they promise to be good boys and girls. Break your promise, no fruit cup next time.

  • Dr Food

    In case you’ve been under a rock for a looong time, the sale of alcohol is legal in the USA.

  • MJABRTDK

    Your kids are lucky most addicts end up dead.

  • MJABRTDK

    NO

  • TYvets

    Condolences. A local young man here died of an overdose. while it is not common here yet, I can state that I knew him … from a child.

    • All American

      Here too and across the country from heroine cut with carfentinyl.

  • TYvets

    I hope it saves lives.

  • C B

    Build That Wall and Stop the Liberal Violence …………

  • airstart

    Deploy some US military gun ships, like wart hogs, Apache attack helicopters on the border, turn it into a free fire zone, and light up any smugglers sighted, see how fast the drug smuggling problem will be solved.

    • constitutiononly

      And that should include Americans who smuggle drugs and guns.

      • PierreLeBon

        ….. and all of the government officials (including Obummer) that created Fast and Furious !!!!

    • MJABRTDK

      I’ve got a cousin that was 25 yr DEA he said the same thing.

      • airstart

        Makes sense. The first 100 meters this side of the border could be designated a free fire zone.

  • C B

    Natural Selection ……. Some are able to adapt and others ( the weak ) don’t ……. Ask God why everything in the World is based on this simple truth and you won’t have to feel sorry for anyone .

    • TYvets

      Ask Satan

      • C B

        I would be he’s no longer President ………

  • Living in the Times

    I am glad your children recovered. That must have been a nightmare for you..and them as well.

  • Reality Junkie

    The laws that are written to “protect” our rights, are the same laws that will always allow this to happen in one form or another. No more Illegal drugs, LOSS of money for everyone in that Legal Law Enforcement food chain. Do you realize how many laws are written to make money?, all of them. We need new laws and classifications of the Drugs in circulation now, but remember, Reagan’s war on drugs that has miserably failed since his term, is now being renewed by Trump.
    I love President Trump to pieces, but the DOJ and the DEA are the biggest issue with this Drug problem, do not give them more funding. We as Americans have paid for enough failed business ventures since the “WAR on DRUGS” wasted our tax money.
    This falls right in line with the FISA renewal. Timing is perfect wouldn’t you say?

  • Joker

    The only answer is full legalization of all narcotics. It’s no one’s business what anyone else puts in their body within the confines of their own property. If you believe otherwise you are an authoritarian fascist, an enemy of freedom.

    • MJABRTDK

      The problem with drugs and your comment is drugs never stays at home.

  • Troutaholic Flo

    and god loves pedophiles as well!!!!

    • Living in the Times

      Only if they turn from their sin. God does not condone sexual sin of any kind…especially towards children.

    • Diane Coto

      God may love and even forgive the pedophiles, but I won’t. Children are the least likely to be able to protect themselves from this abhorrent behavior.

  • Fergus

    Drug addiction occurs as a terrible choice made by drug addicted persons. Calling drug addiction a sickness is just another way of making excuses for the drug addicts behavior. A persons addiction was their own BAD decision. Usually there is no going back once this addiction begins.
    The world needs to face up to the only way to put a real stop to all this Heroin / cocaine / meth addiction is NOT to help keep those drug abusers alive who buy and use those drugs but to help them kill themselves instead, and the quicker they do the better off the rest of the world will be!

    In a number of countries the penalty for drug dealings is death. If you are caught having dealings with drugs those countries quietly hold closed door trials then execute those drug law breakers. The rest of the world ought to do the same!
    The death penalty may be distasteful to many as it may slow down the drug addiction problem, however poisoned drugs would be the silent but deadly killer that will most certainly stop any and soon all illegal use of drugs.

    When ever drugs are captured rather then disposing of those drugs, instead lace those captured drugs with poisons such as sarin or cyanide or ricin and sell those drugs cheaply back out into the drug market.
    Rumors about deadly, tainted drugs that cause instant death will quickly spread far and wide. Those tainted drugs will certainly point back at the very drug cartels that supply those drugs causing the drug market to dry up as only fools and drug crazed addicts buy and use drugs that kill instantly.
    Those hard core drug users who can’t resist taking these poisoned drugs will end up killing themselves and those drug markets along with their deaths.
    Certainly this is not at all politically correct but effective just the same. Besides those countries willing to sell those poisoned drugs back out into the market make good profits off the drugs as well, making tax payers happy.
    Those of you who still think human life is sacred are politically correct fools. Life when it’s been ruined by drug addictions is no longer a life at all therefore ending those ruined lives is a service to mankind!

    • dracer

      If you have ever flown into Singapore, just before landing the flight attendants make an announcement that possession of drugs is punishable by death. They announce this several times and even say that if a person has drugs the drugs should be discarded prior to approaching customs. It seems to be a very successful program

    • Bob

      That is just so wrong on so many levels.

    • Joker

      Spent a lot of words writing up a very poor attempt at trolling. Trump you are not.

    • Martin Arredondo

      So, what you’re saying is it’s better to condemn the person than the decision. God help you and your family that you never have to deal with an addicted family member or the death of one. I have had to endure both. Your ignorance of the subject is astounding. You don’t throw away a life because of bad decisions. Any person who is a recovered addict that lives a “normal life” in this world is a far better asset to mankind than any person who feels the way you do about addiction.

      • Living in the Times

        Well said. I am sorry for the losses you have endured. As a parent, I can only imagine the pain.

      • Fergus

        Mr Arrendondo, indeed I’ve had to deal with drug addiction within my immediate family as well as death from those drugs within my family. Sad to see them go this way but the family members that remain alive are better off for their departure. Those family members that were addicted were taking the entire family down the toilet with their addiction.
        We’re better off without them.

        • DickGoesinya69

          I and my family has as well experienced this.We feel the same way,better off without the danger,and drama.

  • MJABRTDK

    Execute drug mafg, execute dealers and execute users and most of this would disappear.

    • RW Stevens

      Only took 2 comments to get to what my immediate response to solving illegal drug use – death penalty for possession, Life W/O for testing positive. Nothing short of this will deter anyone from using.

      • uncommon sense

        So you want to use Soviet laws.

        Communist.

        • RW Stevens

          You don’t get it. Nunya likeya do. Some kinda screwball lib thinkin you can show people a better way w/o threatening death. Must be Afghany? Grow poppies? BTW smart guy, is that in the commie constitution – to kill dealers? You bet, I’m all about that!! Mexicany? MS-??

  • scott

    The “answer ” is execution. So he’s right America isn’t ready!

    • tom amann

      that’s some answer ,and in counties where dealers are sometimes killed there is still drug trade , except criminals are more likely to kill police to keep from being arrested .

      • scott

        Brings to mind the Philippines and Duerte. I don’t think that answer would go over too well here

        • candofeminist

          Duterte is enormously popular in the Philippines. Over 70% support.

          • All American

            We hope he stays there👍🏻

  • tom amann

    It is already against the law to bring drugs into the country without Federal license , what more can you do except word the prohibition differently .While I’m infavor of stopping hard dope from entering the country laws tend to push prices higher , make criminals richer , cops and politicians crooked , a

      A septuagenarian who thinks coal is the future isn’t going to try a new approach.

      • Jeffrey Martin

        Coal and natural gas are the future. But, your point at least sounds and feels good and that’s what counts.

        • Spud51

          When coal or natural gas can be used as fuel in aircraft, then I will believe that they are the future.!!!

      • LILIBETH

        Coal is still in demand on a worldwide basis. Many people would suffer greatly without it. In the future we may he able to utilize other sources of energy. We just aren’t there yet.
