What's it about?

This collection looks into both the legal pharmaceutical industry and the illegal drug trade in the US. You'll look at the wider dangers of influential pharmaceutical companies: lobbying for corporate gain, risk to mental and physical health through over-diagnosis, and overmedication. Then they'll get flipped over to show how drug cartels run their operations, the damaging effects of America's war on drugs—and why we need to rethink addiction and drug enforcement today.
