Should drug dealers get the death penalty?

As part of his plan to fight the opioid epidemic, President Trump has rolled out a policy that calls for the death penalty for drug dealers. Many support Trump's plan; drug dealers are responsible for perpetuating the drug epidemic and ruining families. But others argue following in the footsteps of Philippine President Duterte is the wrong approach. Not to mention it's Big Pharma that is largely responsible for the opioid epidemic, not drug dealers. What do you think? 💉

In his plan to fight the opioid epidemic, Trump is calling for drug dealers to get the death penalty similar to what President Duterte has done in the Philippines.

A top administration official said on Sunday the president’s plan to combat opioid drug addiction nationwide, to be announced in New Hampshire on Monday, calls for the death penalty for drug traffickers where appropriate under current law.

Many have applauded Trump's plan. Drug dealers are responsible for ruining lives and destroying families. Why should they be spared of the death penalty if they bring death and destruction to others?

But others argue the death penalty is the wrong approach. It is Big Pharma, not low-level drug dealers, that is largely responsible for the opioid epidemic. Trump's proposal totally misses the point.

And others point out that Trump's proposal will disproportionately hurt people of color.
