DEA Administrator Anne Milgram said over the weekend that Congress needs to pass some sort of legislation to crack down on social media companies for allegedly not doing enough to stop the sale of fentanyl on their platforms.
Milgram told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press” that social media is what she calls “the last mile.”
“The border’s an important part of this conversation because most of the fentanyl that we see coming into the United States is coming in through the southwest border,” she said. “Social media is also a vital part of the conversation. It is what I call the last mile. Because what the cartels need – they’re selling the deadliest poison we’ve ever seen – they need that to … be able to expand and sell more, they need to be able to reach people at massive rates. And that’s what social media’s doing.”
