Trump added: "So that kids seeing those commercials during the right shows on television or wherever, the internet, when they see these commercials they, 'I don't want any part of it.' That is the least expensive thing we can do". And they don't even put you in jail, they don't do anything.

The Postal Service receives data on some packages, but only private couriers such as UPS and FedEx provide it on every parcel.

Monday's announcement comes after President Trump declared the opioid crisis a public health emergency. That, among other treatments, would amount to a frontal assault on the opioid scourge.

Education and making it easier to access treatment were the two areas Quashen said are the biggest ways to stop the crisis.
