Fentanyl: A Poisoning and Anesthetizing of Our Nation looks at the opioid crisis from several angles. It begins by defining Fentanyl's key characteristics of potency, drug class, and origins through a scientific lens. Then, you'll hear a real-life story about a person affected by Fentanyl addiction. Political and criminal justice matters such as illicit trafficking and manufacturing are brought to light. Finally, harm reduction methods are presented as a possible response to the exponential increase in Fentanyl related deaths happening all over the United States.
