During the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve been reminded from time-to-time that thousands of people are still dying across the country from drug overdoses. Often, the deaths are attributed to and listed as part of the opioid epidemic.

Best-selling author Sam Quinones writes in his new book that we as a nation are in a new era and one that is dominated by the deadly synthetic drug fentanyl, as well as a new generation of methamphetamine — that is driving those who use it to what looks very much like mental illness.

New York Times bestselling author Sam Quinones appears on Smart Talk Thursday to offer perspective on his latest book, THE LEAST OF US: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth.
