Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
National Drug Take-Back Day April 26, 2016
Evan Jenkins, R-WV
"Please go to and find a local Drug Take-Back Day location near you."
Executive Session March 14, 2016
Tom Cotton, R-AR
"The world is full of violence, oppression, corruption, and injustice. We cannot turn a blind eye to this. It often has a way of arriving at our borders and on our shores. Similar to most Americans, my heart breaks when I imagine the plight of those desperate parents in Central America as they look upon their little ones. That is why I strongly support efforts to assist countries such as Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to develop stronger institutions and improve living conditions there. Many dedicated professionals in the State Department, FBI, DEA, Southern Command, and other Federal agencies are there serving us—to do just that."
Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Act Of 2015—Continued March 8, 2016
Edward Markey, D-MA
"We should create a requirement that if the DEA is going to license physicians to prescribe opioids—and every physician in America must go to the DEA to get a license—if they are going to be allowed to prescribe, the physician must prove he or she has been educated to do so."
Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Bill March 8, 2016
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"This bill strengthens State programs like Connecticut’s that are already in place, including State prescription drug monitoring programs as well as training for law enforcement and emergency responders in the use of Narcan. It provides important recovery support services for those struggling with addiction, and it would strengthen existing Federal programs, such as the DEA‘s drug take-back program."
Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Act Of 2015 March 7, 2016
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"This is a significant matter. As DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg, a bright, young mind appointed by President Obama, noted last July that “[a]pproximately 120 people die each day in the United States of a drug overdose.”"
