Death by Fentanyl – A U.S. drug epidemic

Death by Fentanyl – A U.S. drug epidemic

Yesterday, we brought you part one of the Naked Truth’s mini-documentary series on fentanyl, an opiate causing a drug pandemic in America.

Mixed with other high powered street substances like cocaine and heroin, it’s easily accessible to both drug lords and anyone who can get a prescription. Being a prescription drug has facilitated its rampant rise to popularity; an estimated 4 out of 5 needle addicts got their start on prescription pills, like fentanyl.

Part two of the documentary, linked below, looks at the marketing practices of one pharmaceutical company that opened the door for higher rates of prescribing, and addiction.

The final four parts of the documentary can be found here.
