Why Does Congress Keep a Bad Law that Has Killed Thousands of Americans?

April 11, 2018 Jon Rappoport 0

Currently, there are 2 million Americans addicted to opioid drugs, and more than 300,000 people have died from opioids since 2000. The Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act of 2016 shackled the DEA from cracking down on Big Pharma drug traffickers who sell millions of opioid pills to small pharmacies and clinics who, in turn, sell the pills to street dealers. There is no excuse for Congress refusing to repeal the law now, except that parts of the federal government support the opioid industry.
