RFK, Jr. Wants the Billions Sent to Ukraine To Be Invested in ‘Healing Farms’ for Americans Struggling With Depression and Addiction
September 04, 2023
In an interview with the Daily Mail's Kelly Laco, Democratic longshot presidential candidate, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., says there is an ‘epidemic’ of not just substance abuse but ‘loneliness, despair, disassociation, alienation’ - while those in power are ‘addicted to war.'
'People feel dispossessed, and we need to start healing people.'
'And one of the things I'm going to do is to launch a series of healing farms in rural areas all across the country, in places where the only industry now is prisons.'
He pointed to the ongoing fentanyl crisis in America as an issue that needs to be taken more seriously.
'We're losing a whole generation of youth. We lost 106,000 people this year alone from fentanyl deaths,' he told DailyMail.com - twice the amount of U.S. soldiers killed in the 20-year Vietnam war, he says.
'We need to be taking some of that money we're sending to Ukraine and start spending it on the crisis we're having right here at home.'
