The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic

Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2016
Rate this:
With a great reporter's narrative skill and the storytelling ability of a novelist, acclaimed journalist Sam Quinones weaves together two classic tales of capitalism run amok whose unintentional collision has been catastrophic. The unfettered prescribing of pain medications during the 1990s reached its peak in Purdue Pharma's campaign to market OxyContin, its new, expensive―and extremely addictive―miracle painkiller. Meanwhile a massive influx of black tar heroin―cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel―assaulted small towns and midsized cities across the country, driven by a brilliant, almost unbeatable marketing and distribution system. Together these phenomena continue to lay waste to communities from Tennessee to Oregon, Indiana to New Mexico.
