Sometimes, thinking outside the box produces a genius of an idea. Like Ted Cruz suggesting that we use the 14 billion dollars confiscated from El Chapo, Joaquin Guzman, to fund the wall between Mexico and the United States. Regardless on your stance on immigration, the wall would serve to stem the flow of illegal drugs that is killing so many of our citizens.

The problem is so bad that at least one state, Maryland, has declared a state of emergency over the opioid epidemic and every state is dealing with crime and deaths because of the drugs.

No one can doubt that the major point of entry is the southern border, few are immune to some of the repercussions, and only the very lucky have not lost someone they care about or suffered financial and emotional stress from the epidemic.

How can we face our children and grandchildren without addressing and trying to fix or at the very least slow the rate of death and destruction? I cannot imagine a better source of funds to begin the process.
