Ocala resident shares thoughts on drug trafficking sentences

To the Editor:

I noticed on January 17th that a local Ocala man was arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine and fentanyl.

Given how deadly drugs like fentanyl are, I believe that a charge of attempted murder should be considered with appropriate punishment. If the person sold these drugs to someone who died, I believe the charge should be upgraded to murder.
