Crime, Drug Policy & the Courts

Congressman McHenry organized a conference with sheriffs and other law enforcement personnel from every county in the Tenth District, along with federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents and State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) agents to discuss solutions to the increasing methamphetamine problem in North Carolina. The Congressman supports stiffer penalties for drug dealers and offenders, and better management of federal grants to assist the efforts of local law enforcement to eradicate this problem. Congressman McHenry supported increased funding for enforcement efforts to combat prescription drug abuse and is a member of the Congressional Caucus to Fight Methamphetamine, which works to stop the use and production of this dangerous drug. 
 
The role of the judicial branch of government is to interpret the law, not create it.  That responsibility belongs to democratically-elected representatives who are accountable to the American people.  However, activist judges continue to write public policy from the bench in defiance of the Constitution and against the will of the American people.
