Klobuchar seems to never-endly be involved in every fluffy feel-good and consumer advocacy issue that comes across her desk. All well and good, mind you. But if what she wants is to be the next Ralph Nader, she should do it from a nonprofit office-place, not a U.S. Senate seat.

Start a marketing campaign akin to the "faces of crack" so our young people will see how you can "F" up their lives with one poor decision. Publicly ostracize and ridicule the heck out if it and those who use it

If Klobuchar is involved, it means billions of taxpayer dollars thrown at the wall hoping something sticks....

I'm more interested in hearing Amy's opinion and reading about her actions to attack our $17 Trillion dollar (and growing) debt - you know, only something the senators and representatives can do.

Just how is this going to be done in the epicenter of heroin trafficking in Minnesota....Minneapolis? The Minneapolis Narcotic Unit was disbanded years ago, gang Units rightly dismantled and the local Community Response Teams are ill prepared to take on another task that they are under-educated to resolve. And if the federal agencies who do active investigations on drug issues were on top of this, it would not be a problem. Cutbacks and staffing are the lament of LE Administrators.
