LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 25:  Signage hangs outside +Doctor, a medical marijuana evaluation clinic, which does not distribute marijuana from its facility, is seen on July 25, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. The Los Angeles City Council has unanimously voted to ban storefront medical marijuana dispensaries and to order them to close or face legal action. The council also voted to instruct staff to draw up a separate ordinance for consideration in about three months that might allow dispensaries that existed before a 2007 moratorium on new dispensaries to continue to operate. It is estimated that Los Angeles has about one thousand such facilities. The ban does not prevent patients or cooperatives of two or three people to grow their own in small amounts. Californians voted to legalize medical cannabis use in 1996, clashing with federal drug laws. The state Supreme Court is expected to consider ruling on whether cities can regulate and ban dispensaries.    (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images) READ MORE

FILE - In this Jan. 8, 2016 file photo image released by Mexico's federal government, Mexico's most wanted drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, stands for his prison mug shot at the Altiplano maximum security federal prison in Almoloya, Mexico. The world's most wanted drug lord was recaptured by Mexican marines months after he fled through a tunnel from a maximum security prison in an escape that deeply embarrassed the government and strained ties with the United States. Now that a Mexican judge has ruled that extradition proceedings for "El Chapo" can go forward, the U.S. Justice Department must choose which one of the competing jurisdictions will win the prize of putting him on trial.

NORWICH, CT - MARCH 23:  Oxycodone pain pills prescribed for a patient with chronic pain lie on display on March 23, 2016 in Norwich, CT. Communities nationwide are struggling with the unprecidented opioid pain pill and heroin addiction epidemic. On March 15, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), announced guidelines for doctors to reduce the amount of opioid painkillers prescribed, in an effort to curb the epidemic.
