Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly confirmed that the War on Drugs would not include any current changes to Marijuana reform. Kelly said that there are only three drugs they are worried about right now --- Methamphetamine, Heroin, and Cocaine. John went on to say that Trump is working with Chris Christie to combat opiate addiction.

Marijuana is not a factor in the drug war

Kelly appeared on NBC's Meet the Press, and he talked at length about Trump's war on drugs. He cleared up the rumor that the president wanted include Marijuana in the war on drugs.

Apparently, Donald doesn't see a benefit in "arrested a bunch of cannabis users," thus costing the taxpayers more money.

Instead, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary explained they plan to target Methamphetamine, Heroin, and Cocaine users. They hope, in time, to reduce the demand in the United States for the dangerous drugs.

"Yeah, marijuana is not a factor in the drug war," Kelly explained on Meet The Press. "It's three things. Methamphetamine. Almost all produced in Mexico. Heroin. Virtually all manufactured in Mexico.

And cocaine that comes up from further south."

In 2015, the above three drugs were responsible for the deaths of 52,000 people and cost the country over $250 million. They need a plan to end the drug crisis in America.

Trump's plan is aggressive

The plan does not involve arresting a bunch of users and throwing them in jail. Kelly doesn't think that will help matters and usually results in the addict not getting the mental health help they need to overcome their dependence.

Instead, John said the new policy is to substantially reduce the demand for these drugs by setting up the addicts with the help they need, organize an effective rehabilitation system, and use law enforcement when necessary.

Kelly admitted that they would need to use the legal court systems for some users. Not every addict is ready to give up their drugs, and they may have to be forced.

For those who aren't willing to attend drug rehabilitation, they will face legal consequences. They will either have to enter a court order treatment center or face time in jail.

The last step in the war on drugs will be to cut the poppy and coca fields off and not let them bring their drugs into the United States. Kelly explained that the process could take "years to implement."

One DUI could spell trouble for illegal immigrants, under new policy

Kelly revealed that under the new immigration law, immigrants who get one DUI (Driving under the influence) could trigger deportation proceedings.

He added that if a legal resident has multiple DUIs convictions that it would "undoubtedly" result in being deported.

John said that Trump's administration differs from Obama's in how they handle the treatment of immigrants. Kelly cautioned that one single DUI could result in a deportation hearing. He added that it would depend on the circumstances.

Kelly said that the definition of being a criminal includes DUI convictions. He was quick to point out that he and ICE do not deport anyone ---it is the justice department that does that.

The Department of Homeland Security Secretary said that there is a plan to hire 10,000 new ICE agents and 5,000 border control agents. It looks like Trump is moving forward with his "deportation task force."

Kelly acknowledged that deporting immigrants is not a black or white issue.

There are other factors to consider. Many of them marry American citizens and have children born in the United States and they have built a life in this country.

It's good news that the Trump administration does not plan to try to criminalize Marijuana. Do you agree with Trump's new drug and immigration new policies?
