POLICE TREAT FENTANYL OVERDOSES AS HOMICIDES

In an effort to stem the tide police consider charging dealers with manslaughter. Is this approach likely to help? “Given that the “very serious penalties” that can accompany trafficking convictions have not stemmed the drug trade, it is unclear whether manslaughter charges will be a greater deterrent. These are not solutions that are really going to help the terrible problems that are going on with fentanyl”
Police are looking to treat fatal overdoses as homicides, arguing that holding drug dealers responsible for deaths could act as a deterrent
