Trump’s Opioid Commission Rejects Marijuana As Pain Relief Option

Last month, President Donald Trump declared the opioid overdose crisis “a national health emergency” and assured the American people that “we can be the generation that ends the epidemic.” But in Trump’s major announcement was short on substance.

In the Oct. 26 speech, he reiterated the false notion that building the US-Mexico wall would stop the flow of drugs into the country. His other major “really tough, really big, really great” advertising campaign that would convince Americans never to do drugs in the first place.

Drug policy experts were not impressed and hoped that Trump’s special commission on the opioid crisis, led by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, would fill in the gaps.
