Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote to federal prosecutors a day after listening to President Donald Trump urge death sentences for some drug traffickers, telling them how to justify it.
Trump on Monday shared ideas he had for solving the nation's opioid crisis, like putting drug kingpins to death and building his border wall with Mexico; he's pictured giving his speech in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Sessions' memo listed potential death penalty-eligible crimes including 'certain racketeering activities,' 'the use of a firearm resulting in death during a drug trafficking crime,' 'murder in furtherance of a continuing criminal enterprise' and 'dealing in extremely large quantities of drugs.
Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters aboard Air Force One on Monday that the anything the Justice Department proposed would apply to 'drug traffickers. This is high-level, very specific cases.

But McVeigh's was the first in the federal system since Other than Garza, the only other federal convicts executed for their crimes since were kidnap-murderer Louis Jones left and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh right.
The Trump administration is all-in with an initiative to diminish the impact of America's opioid addiction and overdose epidemic, especially with new criminal justice tools unleashed on traffickers of deadly substances like Fentanyl. Trump raised eyebrows when he first suggested executing some drug traffickers, but how the Justice Department is firmly behind him.
According to the Death Penalty Information Center, there are currently 61 federal inmates awaiting execution on death row, most of them at a prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.
