Drugmakers, distributors said to face federal opioid probe
"How if at all could the law hold drug companies criminally accountable for the opioid crisis we may find out federal prosecutors have begun issuing subpoenas to drug companies we do not know for sure if the pro about of Brooklyn is pointing toward criminal charges we don't now but it raises the question of further jeopardy for an industry that is already faced a giant judgments in civil lawsuits Regina lebel we'll talk us through the facts and the law she's at Georgetown University Law Center here in Washington DC she directs Georgetown's addiction and public policy initiative and she knows about this topic because she was chief of staff of the office of national drug control policy under president Obama thanks for coming by this morning good morning so the US attorney's office is not saying what they're up to of course but six companies acknowledge they receive subpoenas what does that suggest to you well it certainly suggests there's a blank stance of criminal probe there have been other charges that have been brought in the state of Ohio and also in in other parts of New York against drug distributors so this is against distributors and manufacturers which makes it very extensive and we're not as you said we're not really sure what the results of this will be over a long period of time if this is as the distributors are saying merely an investigation to look at practices or if it could result in criminal charges being brought against some of the the the officials in these drug distribution companies it's good to take note of that suggestion that this might be smaller narrower than that it seems but suppose it is bigger suppose it does go that way what criminal laws could conceivably apply to people who were doing a perfectly legal business but maybe in a responsible way right so they're bringing these actions under the controlled substances act which is again how these cases have been brought in other parts of the country over the years the Drug Enforcement Administration has brought administrative actions against many of these same distributors where they have shown willful disregard for drug distribution practices we're so I'll give you an example in Kermit is a small town of four hundred people from two thousand and eight to two thousand eleven there were three point seven million units so doses of the opioid hydrocodone that were distributed to this little pharmacy in a town of four hundred in which state was not this was in West Virginia okay so that's an example of the type of kind of willful disregard for regulatory practices that they could be looking at in this case meaning you guys could look at the numbers and tell that something was happening here and that you were effectively drug dealers pretty much and what they're supposed to do in in best practices they're supposed to tell Drug Enforcement Administration Hey there's something going on here we're gonna take a look at this and work with you to regulate it but that it clearly that's the question here did that happen we've seen over a number of years that that isn't what happened and that's what that's what this could be about common sense would tell us that if millions of doses of drugs are being sold in a town of a few hundred that something odd is going on here but is there a law like specific law for which you could face criminal penalties because you failed to do something there right that's the controlled substances act that's what it does exactly and that law is written in a way that someone could go to jail executive our current executive could go to write right now of course the company's Johnson Johnson to give an example they've already faced huge civil judgments but they've said when it comes to monitoring the flow of drugs whatever they did complied with the law could there be a case to be made there certainly I mean so they they'll look at they'll have to have discovery the look at what what happened if you know if the compliance officers weren't really doing their job if they encourage people to to provide I'd more drugs to the small towns so they'll they'll they'll look at all of this during discovery given the companies are paying are being told to pay billions of dollars in civil settlements is there a point at which this becomes too much so I think from a policy perspective we want to do is make sure this doesn't happen again and will we reach that point when will we reach that point and I think that that's the question before us is incarcerating these directors of these corporations gonna make sure that we change the practices that lead us to this would you do that put somebody in jail I ate out my interest is in changing the policies and practices that got us to where we are today does that mean if that means jail time for someone you do it I think that that's a that's a larger issue my concern is changing marketing

"drug enforcement administration" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Dylan acting administrator of the DA Drug Enforcement Administration. I'm Bernie Lucas there's often a connection between prescription drug addiction and more serious illegal drugs like heroin, which means part of this crisis relates to the availability of those illegal drugs until it's a little bit about the enforcement part of Drug Enforcement Administration. Well, that's DA's primary mission to enforce the drug laws. DA focuses on attacking drug trafficking organizations. Major drug trafficking organizations DA's a global law enforcement agency and unfortunately, drug trafficking organizations today are global drug trafficking organizations to DA's mission is to attack these organizations and to destroy them to make it impossible for them to continue to do business. The way DA works is. We collect information about these organizations. And then we we have enough information to indict individuals within these organizations, we indict them in the United States, if they're here, then we obviously arrest them and bring them to Justice. And if they're overseas, we extradite them and bring them to Justice L chop, a great example of how that works. Right. Congratulations on that one. Thank you. That's a that's a great victory for DA and it demonstrates to the world that no matter who you are. We will never rest. So we bring you to Justice, right? So you kind of think of dealers, but this is bigger than that this drug cartels gangs that type of thing. Sure, it's locally gangs or the primary way drugs are distributed in our communities, but think of it sort of as a, you know, a pyramid you've got the gangs. And then you Bill to distributors you build to the cartels that are that are actually doing the international distribution large scale drug trafficking in this country is done by largely Mexican drug trafficking organizations, and they have tentacles all across the country. They have connections all across the country. So drugs are distributed around the world in that way. The battle never stops. But is it feeling like there's some progress being made well the battle never stops. We're going to have we've had crime since the beginning of time. And and you know, we're always going to have people who are doing that. But you know, we are making progress. We're one of the things we're doing a D as we're increasing the number of agents this administration has actually been in congress have been very generous in terms of DA's budget. And so most recently we've had a significant budget increase, which is allowed us increase the number of agents to increase our presence in communities and to increase our presence internationally. I mentioned the connection between prescription drug addiction and the more series illegal drugs. Sadly, someone I know who's who lost her son as a result of that direct connection. He started with prescription meds as a result of football injury. It eventually he never wanted to do this. But eventually became an addiction and eventually translated to more serious illegal drugs, which were more available than the prescriptions. You don't need a prescription to get that. So that's part of what you're attacking then. Right. Absolutely. So here's the danger you become addicted to prescription drugs, you're addicted you now need to continue to feed that addiction. If the prescription drugs aren't available. They're legal opioids like heroin and federal that are available and what people start using those drugs. That's what it really becomes extremely dangerous counterfeit pills, for example, manufactured in Mexico with Fenton them to mimic the opioid effects of the real McCoy. Those are the sorts of things that are killing Americans every day. Why is that because the people who are manufacturing those pills aren't real manufacturers? They're doing them in garages or basements, there doing it illegally. And they're not they're not manufacturing the pill to the same standards. Which means you get what are called hotspots pills. Hotspots are higher doses of the particularly effective drug, for example, feno takes very little fed no to create to overdose on, and that's why we see so many people dying of opioid overdoses because of these these pills that are manufactured illegally counterfeit pills that have too much of the drug in them. And sometimes the dealers are just mixing and matching and the person buying these daily drugs. Don't know what's in a Murray. Absolutely. In one batch, you could get a pill with absolutely no opioid and other what you can get a pill that will kill you. That's why tell people the only advice, I can give you if you want to be sure if you're gonna take legal drugs like that and not dive, a drug overdose is don't take any of those drugs because you're you're actually placing your life in the hands of people who have zero expertise at creating the drugs, you're taking right right there. Just in for the money. That's all they're rated for these people don't care if you die all they care about is making money, and that's why we're seeing the drug overdose crisis. We're saying today and the the the typical stereotype of drug addict, as you know, maybe someone on the street needle marks its cetera. But it it's it could be people in a much wider range of people than that. Unfortunately today that is the case. People become addicted to opioids who never imagined that was going to happen family members. Can't imagine that certain of their family members have become addicted there just weren't the type. This is a crisis cuts across also CO economic lines. We're talking with Dylan acting administrator of the DA Drug Enforcement Administration. We're connecting this conversation with prescription drug take back day. So how does all of this circle back to to take back the importance of take back day? Well, DA's prescription drug take back day is really important for two reasons. First we ask them air Americans to clear out their medicine cabinets unused wanted and expired prescription medications. That's important for the practical reason, it gets rid of those drugs. So people can't become addicted to them. The second reason we think that it's really important is because people become aware of the fact that there's an overdose crisis in this country. If you're going to a prescription drug take back location. You've become aware of the fact that it's important to get to get rid of those prescription drugs. So we think this important because we not only have the practical effect of getting rid of drugs. People can become addicted to but also raising awareness about the problem that Americans are facing the extrordinary drug overdose problem that we're facing every day. What are some of the DA's efforts to reduce the quantity of opioids that there in addition to his enforcement function DA also has a regulatory function. What DA does is we said quotas every year for these certain controlled substances such as opioids to be manufactured, the amounts that can be manufactured. So one of the things we realized was that many manufacturers were making far more of these addictive drugs than were actually needed by doctors to prescribe to patients or research and the like so since twenty sixteen we've decreased the amount of opioids manufacturers make about forty seven percent with that means is we've determined that the amount of opioids that are needed for again doctors to prescribe the patience to be used in medical research. And the like we're almost half of what manufacturers were making since twenty sixteen that's critical because we take in. The slack out of the system. We've made it more difficult by doing that for these drugs to be moved into the illegal market to be diverted is the word we used for illicit use. And we hope I doing that will make it harder for people to become addicted to prescription opioids talking with Dylan acting administrator of the DA and specifically talking about the national DA drug take back day, which happens twice a year in April and Tober tell us about some of the other activities of the Drug Enforcement Administration will actually it's it's not just the department of Justice. So let me start off by telling you that the department of Justice has added many more prosecutors to prosecute drug cases. The department of Justice has also announced a number of programs to attack the opiate overdose problem in specific areas. So when program announced last summer was operation s. SOS which attacks the feno problem in the northeast we have other operations throughout the country to specifically attack areas where we see overdose deaths as result of opioids. We have a number of heroin force team. So we've dispatched or in the process of dispatching throughout the country. In fact, the president's twenty twenty budget for DA allocates eleven million more dollars for five more heroin force Mateen's. So DA is focused on increasing enforcement in our local communities as well as quizzing enforcement globally to attack the drug trafficking organizations that are moving these deadly drugs into our communities. And I'm thinking those communities aren't just big cities. I mean, this happens pretty much everywhere right on some level. It absolutely does drugs are, unfortunately, all over the country, and we've been talking a lot about opioids. But I should also mention that we've got a serious methamphetamine problem in this country meth is is is prevalent now in most parts of the United States and cocaine, of course, is a problem. It's never really gone away. So we have a serious heroin problem. That's exacerbated by federal which is what's causing many of the drug overdose deaths were saying, we also lose many Americans to methamphetamines, and Toco Cain. More thoughts about the overdose crisis. DA prescription drug take back day nine only is an opportunity to ask Americans to clean out. Their medicine cabinets and bring their drugs for safe and secure disposal at a location near them. But it's also to educate Americans about the difficult about the overdose crisis that we're facing one of the other things that he does every October is national red ribbon week we've and during that week DA focuses on educating young people students about the dangers of drug abuse and drug addiction, and we asked to to take a pledge not to use drugs as very important time of the year for DA. It's also a time of the year where we remember a very special person in DA history special agent in reiki Camerena who was murdered by drug traffickers over thirty years ago, actually, his murderous with started the red ribbon campaign is something to eat us to to this day. Day. That's pretty incredible. So we have a few minutes to go. Is there anything else that you would like to add.
Denver residents vote on whether to decriminalize 'magic mushrooms'
"Give us the one. Oh, one on magic mushrooms is still assignment mushrooms or psychedelics that can cause loosen Asians and along with several other psychedelics.

Invent Denver doesn't actually legalize the mushrooms. The goal is just to d- prioritize to the greatest extent possible. The criminal penalties for using.

So essentially at a directs law enforcement to focus his attention on every other crime, including jaywalking before it enforces laws that make magic mushrooms illegal. Jaywalking would be a higher priority. Interesting where did this initiative come from? What's the argument in favor of it?

"Sign in for rush. America's number one radio show. Let us go to. Bonnie in in Alaska in keanae. I think that's a little bit west of where we're going to be on the Mark Stein. Clues KiKi knives. Sort of on the coast halfway between the Yukon, and the Bering straits is that that's the right ten will part of the world is it bunny? Not too far away, Mark. And if you're cruise ship stops on the Canadiana, keanae, peninsula, stopover and shake your hand. Okay. We'll we'll swing by your place for lunch. I'll I'll I'll I'll head up and stay the ship over the oil pad. What's on your mind today? Bernie. I'm calling to hear your thoughts on the phone before. I retired from the Drug Enforcement Administration. I spent ten years working on Arizona Mexico border with among other people border patrol agent. Brian Terry who was murdered by alien down there. So whenever I hear rush talked about the wall, I pay attention. And and rush said last month that forty two percent of the Americans today favor. The construction of the wall last week. There was a poll that said fifty two percent of the Americans favor. The construction of the wall, and I heard rush say twenty five years ago, a longtime listener twenty five years ago rush at that thirty percent only thirty percent of the Americans favored independence from Britain. And of course, we know how the revolutionary war turned out. My point is that there are more Americans that favor construction of the wall to help save America. Then there was a percentage of. Americans who wanted independence from Britain related to a caller maybe half an hour ago or so who talked about indoctrination and the campuses will in seventeen seventy six we knew who the enemy was the enemy wore red coats. The enemies are on the campus in the classrooms there in the cars when we drive there in our homes twenty four seven and so. What are your thoughts? Marc. Yeah. I well, I said the the the those numbers about Americans who favored independence from Britain bring up a little bit of unpleasantness for some of us Abani, but you are actually right. The New York state, for example, an overwhelming majority of the population of New York state where loyalists and after the revolution a big chunk of them actually out sticks because on the losing side and fled north. And if you are on the north shore of Lake Ontario around Kingston all the way over then to Toronto. That's that's sorta loyalists country. In fact, they've got a the the main road there is called the loyalist Parkway and the county is called loyalists county. And if you go to beautiful Niagara on the lake they've just put up. Band new sign hailing themselves as a prosperous loyalist community. They're the guys who went in favor of the revolution. And as you said about the only about thirty percent of the country was of the of the of the thirteen colonies was and that's an important lesson. Because it tells you that it's not a numbers game. It's about where the energy is where the enthusiasm. That makes things happen. It's not just the straight. Fifty one percent. Forty nine percent thing. It's about who has the energy. And my concern is that right now, we have as you say in one poll, we've got fifty two percent of Americans who favor wall, but we have an incredibly energized opposition to the wall, and that opposition to the wall has support in the media. It has support among some of these rinky Dink district court judges too far too many of whom Americans are over deferential. So the wool so the opponents of the wall may be a minority, but they have a they have a huge amount of energy. And that goes to almost everything Barney that the liberals and progressives care about they. Too many people on the conservative side shrug about things. It's not that important to me. We'll see how it plays out. It's never going to happen. It's not a big deal. It's not the hill to dial. And as you said bunny, actually, what matters is not whether you've got fifty one percent of the people. But whether you've got the thirty percent of the people who are and fused, an energetic about it and willing to impress there will even upon a majority of their fellows, Bonnie. That's a that's a that's an interesting statistic you quoted that. Well, you in Russia a couple of today's patriots. So keep up the good work. Thanks. Thanks, buddy. And we will swing by. I don't know whether I'm in a position to hijack a cruise ship Swigert over the body and keyed I but I actually like that.

Man who bought $540 of Girl Scout cookies arrested after drug bust
"We do that. I wanted to talk about this one story in South Carolina. Again, did you see this one a Greenville man spent over five hundred dollars on girl scout cookies Friday, and this is what happened? So he shows up and they're selling these girl scout cookies outside of a store spent forty bucks and said, they keep the change just to get a couple of boxes shortly after he came back with more cash. Purchase all of the girl scout cookies he had left five hundred and forty dollars worth of girl scout cookies. And they thought oh, man, these this guy's got the biggest heart you can possibly have. Because he didn't want these girls standing out in the cold. Oh, isn't that? Sweet. While it only took a couple of days after that pitcher went viral on Facebook, which was shared by thousands of people in was on national news and someone must have recognized the photo because that happened on Friday over the weekend, thousands of shares tens of thousands of reactions in by Tuesday, the Drug Enforcement Administration said he looks familiar. Detrick Lee McGowan. He was arrested those drug enforcement officers in along with ten other people mostly from upstate and McGowan and the others are accused of conspiring to import and possess with the intent to distribute heroin cocaine fat all as part of a twenty two count federal grand jury indictment. Yikes. So he goes from buying all the girl scout cookies to being indicted within manner of a couple of days. I guess that's one way to spend your money apparently accused of trying to smuggle in more than a million dollars in cash out of the United States when you're talking about things like cocaine and heroin. You're not just the small time type of dealer man that federalism, nasty stuff. They only takes a little tiny bit. I mean, we're talking about just a couple of crumbs of this stuff to kill a person. And even the police officers if they come across this stuff just to be in the midst of it just to be around it just to have it in the air without. Even actually coming in direct contact with it is enough to make them sick pass out or even get hospitalized. So he's from South Carolina. Forty six years old, aka nickname is fat. Only took a couple of days. I wonder if he was using some of that. Of course, he was using some of that drug money to buy all those girl scout cookies, how bad you feel if you're the girl scout came in 'cause they were taking pictures with them they act like he was the biggest hero. They've ever saw. They were treating them like he was their grandpa. I mean, he comes in. And it was only forty six they treated them. Just like royalty. This is the greatest man who has ever walked the face of the earth. And. Days later, the drug enforcement arrest him accused of conspiring to smuggle out a million dollars in cash. He's facing life in prison. I mean, that's how serious these charges are isn't that crazy matter of a couple of days.

Is CBD Legal? We Asked the DEA
"CBD's legal status is murky even though it doesn't get anyone stoned the US Drug Enforcement Administration. That's the DA classifies it as a schedule one controlled substance just like cannabis, according to DA spokesperson, Catherine Pfaff the. Agency doesn't distinguish between CBD extracted from a high THC cannabis plant of the sort grown to produce marijuana and CBD that comes from hemp a form of cannabis the contains only tiny amount of THC, the CD that's available in health food stores is of the hemp variety in April. The DA's position on CBD that it should be a schedule one substance because it is extracted from cannabis was upheld by a federal appeals court. But the judges also noted that farm legislation passed by congress in two thousand fourteen which allows states to experiment with hemp production could give CBD marketers illegal out, providing they can verify that CBD was produced from hemp grown in states that have legal hemp programs and in September, the DA did announce that exception for pedia pediatrics the FDA approved seizure medication containing CBD, which it classified as schedule five the category for medications with a low potential for abuse. That says that the DA would do the same thing for other CBD drugs that. Come up through the FDA pipeline that didn't change CBD's overall classification though, although CBD technically remains a controlled substance. The DA is not going out of its way to enforce that prohibition. And it's not targeting CBD users Pfaff explained, quote were more focused on major drug traffickers and the opioid crisis. That leaves CBD up to individual states whose laws vary. According to Justin struggle, political director and federal lobbyists for the national organization for the reformation of marijuana laws. CBD is definitely in the clear in the nine states. Plus the district of Columbia that of legalized cannabis use for adults and in the thirty one states that have legalized medical cannabis CBD's legal. If a person has an authorization him from a physician to other states, Indiana, and Kansas have passed laws legalizing CBD from hemp, even though they don't allow medical or recreational. Use of cannabis struggle says there have been very few instances of consumers actually facing criminal charges for purchasing. CBD derived from hemp.

For, us somewhere between five and fifteen percent of all our calories. Come from that kind of digestion where the microbes.

The same, results in a larger group of dieters they'd like to use this information to help people lose weight what do you hope to do is to be able to individualize care for people and we would also.
