LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – President Donald Trump’s plan to combat the opioid crisis includes some controversial provisions.

That includes cutting opioid prescriptions by one-third nationwide over the next three years and a large-scale campaign highlighting the negative effects of addiction.

Policies aim to increase penalties for drug dealing and trafficking, including, in some cases, the death penalty. 

Eric Hargan, the U.S. Deputy Secretary of Health & Human Services talked about the plan with Susanne Brunner on Tuesday morning during Fox16 Good Day. Watch the interview in the video below.
