The Scourge of Fentanyl & Meth on our Nation

Your host, Angela Kennecke,  first met Journalist and Author, Sam Quinones, when he spoke at an Opioid Summit in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, after writing his best-selling book, Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic. Now his latest book, The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth, looks at how much the drug market has changed and how deadly and addictive it has become. Quinones examines why the unbelievable number of fentanyl overdoses aren’t enough to stop people from playing Russian roulette with drug use.  His work exposes how extensive the synthetic drug epidemic has become and offers solutions and hope, one small effort at a time.
