Reports Friday said, house officials were looking into capital punishment for high volume drug traffickers, especially in regards to trafficking painkillers like Fentanyl.
Currently, only drug offenders found guilty of murder are eligible for capital punishment.
White House officials say they are also looking into harsher punishments for lower priority drug crimes.
The administration is expected to decide on the issue in the coming weeks.
