How Our Free Press May Reestablish Our War On Opioids
The Washington Post investigation of the process by which a House Republican neutered the ability of the DEA to perform its job demonstrated the importance of one our most important institutions. The House Republican who pushed the bill through Congress was forced to withdraw from his nomination to the top job in our government in the war on opioids. He been appointed by Trump as a reward for defending the drug industry against the DEA's efforts to prevent the free flow opioids to potential addicts. I posted the investigation story yesterday which tells the full story of how the drug industry worked with Congress to stop the DEA from doing its job.
