Douglas: Among other things, the Maryland General Assembly should:
hold Maryland’s lackluster U.S. congressional delegation directly accountable for ensuring maximum federal treatment resources for Maryland, and the closest possible federal law enforcement cooperation with state officials;
enact heavy mandatory minimum sentences for traffickers;
On a broader front:
stop sending mixed messages to citizens about the use of controlled substances;
to ensure full federal-state law enforcement cooperation, defund and end the Maryland Attorney General’s political war on the federal government;
ensure that Maryland National Guard units are fully engaged in lawful counter-narcotics operations on the U.S.-Mexico border as required.
