Oh discussed the "murderous competition" on the streets of Philadelphia as a place where rival drug dealers own different street corners and hold "shootouts." According to the CDC in 2021, one person dies every five minutes from a drug overdose in the US. He also spoke about how different options to drug addicts are not a product of "common sense."
