Ben Westhoff - Fentanyl, Inc: How Rogue Chemists Are Creating the Deadliest Wave of the Opioid Epidemic — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, September 10, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Called “the deadliest drug in America” by the CDC, fentanyl, along with close cousins like K2, Spice, and 25i-NBOMe, caused some 28,000 deaths in 2017. In the first comprehensive account of these dangerous synthetic drugs, Westhoff, an award-winning investigative reporter and the author of Original Gangstas and Dirty South, traces their path from legitimate purposes in scientific laboratories to their manipulation by unscrupulous chemists—most working under government protection in China’s vast pharmaceutical industries—their worldwide black-market distribution, and their devastating effects on individuals, families, and communities both within the United States and on a global scale.
