Limiting the Sale of Drugs on Social Media
I will soon be introducing the Drug-Free Social Media and Digital Communities Act, which would limit the illegal sale of drugs on social media. This bill will adjust the federal criminal code so that drug dealers selling products to users 18 and under on social media would be penalized the same as dealers who sell products near schools, colleges, or youth facilities.
Unfortunately, social media platforms have become hot spots for drug trading, and these dangerous drugs are more accessible to children than ever before, often without parental knowledge of the issue. This bill will serve as a powerful deterrent and provide law enforcement agencies with the tools needed to investigate and prosecute those involved in online drug sales.
