RFK Jr. wants $ sent to Ukraine to be invested in Americans with Depression & Addiction

A battle RFK Jr. is no stranger to


  • RFK Jr. himself has dealt with a 14-year heroin addiction and his ex-wife killed herself by suicide after a battle with alcohol and drugs 
  • ‘People feel dispossessed, and we need to start healing people, RFK told DailyMail.com during an exclusive interview
  • ‘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’ 

Recovering heroin addict RFK Jr. has called for billions in taxpayer dollars being sent to Ukraine to be redirected to fund ‘healing farms’ for Americans struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

The Democratic longshot presidential candidate says there is an ‘epidemic’ of not just substance abuse but ‘loneliness, despair, disassociation, alienation’ – while those in power are ‘addicted to war.’

The 69-year-old points to the thousands being killed by fentanyl and insists it’s time to start spending on the ‘crisis we’re having here at home.’

RFK is no stranger to mental health and addiction challenges.

He was addicted to heroin for 14 years and his ex-wife Mary killed herself in 2012 after a long battle with drugs and alcohol. His 22-year-old niece Saoirse Kennedy Hill died in 2019 after taking a fatal mixture of prescription medications, methadone and alcohol.

He has also been vocal about stopping the cash flow to Kyiv during their war with Russia. It’s one of the many controversial viewpoints that have drawn criticism from his family and led to relatives opposing his 2024 White House bid.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, he said that instead of ‘warehousing’ people who are desperate and alienated, he wants to start the process of ‘rebuilding communities’ one American at a time.

‘We’re now seeing an epidemic of addiction, alcoholism. But also just loneliness, despair, disassociation, alienation.

‘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 are 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.’

  1. Recovery farms are a timeless superb idea much like Germany did in an earlier time. The usual suspects will denounce this as antisemitic White supremecy!
