For the first time that we’re aware, Democratic presidential contender Kamala Harris has actually said something smart.
When asked during one of the recent debates about how she would handle the opioid crisis, Harris declared that drug company executives should be held criminally responsible for harming and killing thousands of Americans with their greed.
As a “matter of justice,” according to Harris, Big Pharma kingpins need to be locked up in prison for their crimes, which we here at Natural News fully agree with as a remedy for the ongoing slaughter of Americans via the pharmaceutical racket.
“As a former prosecutor, I do think of it as being a matter of justice and accountability because they are nothing more than some high-level dope dealers,” Harris told moderator Marc Lacey, followed by resounding audience applause.
“And I’ve seen it happen before,” she added. “I’ve taken on the pharmaceutical companies when I was attorney general of California and led the second largest department of justice. I’ve seen what they do.”
According to Harris, the eight biggest drug companies and insurance companies profited to the tune of $72 billion last year, all on the backs of families that have been destroyed by opioid addiction, which has become a public health epidemic.
“And they knew what they were doing,” Harris further explained about how the drug industry has been “marketing false advertising.”
“They knew what they were pushing in communities in states like Ohio, without any concern about the repercussions because they were profiting and making big bucks. And yes, they should be held accountable,” Harris contends.

If elected president, Harris says, she will also work towards putting an end to mass incarceration and the “failed war on drugs.”
“Let’s go after these pharmaceutical companies for what they’ve been doing to destroy our country in states like Ohio,” she concluded in her response.
While this is all surely a bunch of political rhetoric that Harris will likely never act on – not that she has any chance of becoming president anyway – at least she’s bringing the subject to the table, and letting Americans know that the drug industry is inherently corrupt and cares only about profit.
Amy Klobuchar, one of the other Democrats running for president in 2020, offered a similar but less severe response to the same question, explaining that drug companies should have to pay for the treatment needed by the opioid addicts they created with their opioid drugs.
Beto O’Rourke agreed with this, stating that the opioid crisis will never come to an end “until we hold those responsible accountable.”
But again, the chances of any of this actually happening were any of these clowns to actually win the White House is slim to none. As pointed out by fellow Democratic contender Tulsi Gabbard, Harris’ record as a prosecutor is highly problematic, and directly counters her claims that she’d be tough on Big Pharma.
“There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” Gabbard explained about Harris’ contradictory record.
“She blocked evidence – she blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” Gabbard added. “She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California.”
