In case you missed the explosive investigative report conducted by 60 Minutes and the Washington Post, I urge you to spend a few minutes and watch it. Tragically in the midst of this growing epidemic, the DEA was in 2016 legally handcuffed by a law passed by congress and signed by former President Obama that intervenes with their ability to enforce the law.

A federal whistleblower is asking why Congress passed a bill by unanimous consent, with no objections, to limit the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) power to fight opioid abuse.

A “60 Minutes“-Washington Post investigation found that the bill, which was signed in 2016, may have allowed America’s deadly opioid epidemic to worsen.

Former DEA agent Joe Rannazzisi told “60 Minutes” correspondent Bill Whitaker that the law — which deals with drug distributors who ship pain pills from manufacturers to drug stores — makes it harder to stop distributors from sending millions of prescription pills to “bad pharmacies and doctor’s offices.”
