Seven months ago, President Trump launched a commission to develop solutions to the worst drug crisis in American history -- opioids. The commission, led by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, has just issued its recommendations.

A federal judge in the District of Kansas issued a wiretap order against two suspects, but the modern wiretap process allowed law enforcement to listen even when the phones were outside that district. Should a Kansas District wiretap order be effective wherever its targets travel? Should evidence collected outside of the Kansas District be allowed against the defendants?
