Journalist Beth Macy's definitive account of America's opioid epidemic "masterfully interlaces stories of communities in crisis with dark histories of corporate greed and regulatory indifference" (New York Times) -- from the boardroom to the courtroom and into the living rooms of Americans. In this extraordinary work, Beth Macy takes us into the epicenter of a national drama that has unfolded over two decades. From the labs and marketing departments of big pharma to local doctor's offices; wealthy suburbs to distressed small communities in Central Appalachia; from distant cities to once-idyllic farm towns; the spread of opioid addiction follows a tortuous trajectory that illustrates how this crisis has persisted for so long and become so firmly entrenched. Beginning with a single dealer who lands in a small Virginia town and sets about turning high school football stars into heroin overdose statistics, Macy sets out to answer a grieving mother's question-why her only son died-and comes away with a gripping, unputdownable story of greed and need. From the introduction of OxyContin in 1996, Macy investigates the powerful forces that led America's doctors and patients to embrace a medical culture where overtreatment with painkillers became the norm. In some of the same communities featured in her bestselling book Factory Man, the unemployed use painkillers both to numb the pain of joblessness and pay their bills, while privileged teens trade pills in cul-de-sacs, and even high school standouts fall prey to prostitution, jail, and death. Through unsparing, compelling, and unforgettably humane portraits of families and first responders determined to ameliorate this epidemic, each facet of the crisis comes into focus. In these politically fragmented times, Beth Macy shows that one thing uniting Americans across geographic, partisan, and class lines is opioid drug abuse. But even in the midst of twin crises in drug abuse and healthcare, Macy finds reason to hope and ample signs of the spirit and tenacity that are helping the countless ordinary people ensnared by addiction build a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities. "An impressive feat of journalism, monumental in scope and urgent in its implications." -- Jennifer Latson, The Boston Globe

Gabriel Ferreyra presents a comprehensive analysis of drug trafficking in Mexico and the United States by examining the roots, development, consolidation, and cultural ramifications of this phenomenon in the past century as well as its negative consequences in contemporary Mexico. Ferreyra discusses the most devastating effects correlated to drug trafficking such as high murder rates, gruesome violence, disappearances, and mass graves to emphasize how Mexican society bears the brunt of this phenomenon while the United States insists on the futility of drug prohibition. Unlike other publications, this book provides an interdisciplinary social science approach where drug trafficking is conceptualized as a multifaceted social, political, economic, and cultural problem, rather than just a criminal justice issue. Drug Trafficking in Mexico and the United States also revisits the war on drugs and provides an argument how drug control is the primary force behind drug trafficking. In that respect, there is an analysis on how the DEA has reinforced the war on drugs model and why it became a reactionary agency that opposes any comprehensive alternative to the American drug problem besides drug control. The author concludes with recommendations to implement forward-thinking measures such as decriminalization, reclassification, and legalization of drugs to effectively address the illicit drug trade.--Guadalupe Correa-Cabrera, Associate Professor, Schar School of Policy and Government, George Mason University

The Unmaking of a Drug Dealer

This book follows Dr Hopkins in her journey from physician to healer. After spending the first 20 years of her career providing excellent diagnostic acumen, she realized that the drugs had limited longterm efficacy. As a rheumatologist, challenging patients filled her day however her scientific mind started to look at why so many people were suffering. why in a country of such wealth people were so sick. the data started supporting what she was seeing everyday. Chronically ill patients, autoimmune diseases increasing, and patients spending much of their life and resources trying to get better. in 1988, a pregnancy was complicated by severe Spina Bifida. After losing the child, she began her journey into the land of wellness without drugs. How could the medical community in 1988 not know about the importance of folic acid, a simple vitamin easily accessible. Were our foods no longer adequate sources of nutrition. Why was knowledge of any vitamin or mineral not part of the armamentarium used to bridge people to wellness. Were we just relying on a corrupted food change, watching morbid obesity in our country reach 36%, and liver disease start affecting our adolescent population with many of them having adult diseases in their teen years. Liver transplants from fatty liver, gallbladder disease and type 2 diabetes now plague our population under the age of 20. Chronic diseases that reflect our diet and life styles will be over 50% in the next decade. Like global warming, we can no longer afford to practice medicine the old way, namely, if you have a symptom , I have a drug that will cover up that symptom. We must now teach our your physicians to question WHY would anyone have these symptoms. This is my journey. In 1916, just over 100 years ago, the Flexnor report demanded the closing of most medical schools in the country. The US was facing a world war, starvation and the beginning of the flu season. Infections such has small pox, cholera, the plague, measles, influenza consumed the attention of the medical community. Scientific method was the cornerstone of learning in Paris and Germany. In order to bring our standards up to those in Europe, all naturopathic schools were closed in the USA. Simon FLexnor, MD felt that the USA should take the lead in the world for solving these problems. With the HOPKINS university, and Dr John Welsh, they established the blueprint for research of vaccines and medications. The AMA and the Rockfeller family backed the change from naturopathy to allopathy. Now a century later, we need a new paradigm to address the pandemic of chronic disease that plague people with access to food, clean water, waste management and vaccines. Why is everyone so sick. The pandemic of 2020 has highlighted the dire health of so many in the USA with obesity rates at 40% of the population and vitamin D deficiency, which I will say is a level below 50, is probably close to 90%. It is time that the educators restructure the medical school curriculum to introduce nutrition and lifestyle medicine into the curriculum. Like global warming, we can no longer wait.
