Jan is my favourite.
Wonderful. Restores faith in power of empathy. I love Jan.
this was no accident
The recent Emmy-winning miniseries “Dopesick” looked at the opioid crisis in West Virginia and how Purdue Pharma (run by the Sackler family) pushed addictive medications on the people, causing large numbers of premature deaths. It turned out that there was another look at the opioid crisis. Elaine McMillion Sheldon’s Academy Award-nominated “Heroin(e)” focused on a number of people in Huntington, West Virginia, a small town disproportionately affected by opioids. Part of the focus is how these desperate people turn to drugs, and another part is how other people in the town have tried to help them.
Basically, the things to understand are how big pharma preyed on hopelessness, and how the community has sought to lessen the epidemic’s impacts. Everyone should see this documentary.
