Sessions: Drug crisis deadliest in US history

U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions told law enforcers on the front lines in the opioid crisis that The US is “facing the deadliest drug crisis in American history.” Sessions spoke at New York’s Kennedy Airport on Friday to agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Customs and Border Patrol, and Postal Inspection Service. “It’s an extremely costly thing for the entire American economy, and our social fabric, Sessions said, “people should never minimize the danger and destructive capacity of these drugs. ” Sessions said more Americans died of drug overdoses last year than died from AIDS at the height of the epidemic. He called Republican President Donald Trump law enforcers’ strongest supporter. On Thursday, Trump declared opioid abuse a national public health emergency and announced steps to combat the crisis. Sessions also promoted National Prescription Drug Takeback Day, which is on Saturday. People can dispose of unneeded and potentially dangerous drugs, no questions asked. “When excess drugs are sitting in our medicine cabinets it’s that much easier for them to end up in the wrong hands.,” Sessions said.
