Record Overdose Deaths: How Many of Our Kids Need to Die?
Listen now
Description
Sara discusses the news that more than 93,000 people died of drug overdoses in the U.S. in 2020. That's the highest number ever recorded. And it's not just addicts and the mentally ill. Many people are dying because they took just one pill, but that pill was laced with deadly poisons like fentanyl. Sara also brings in Derek Maltz, who headed the Drug Enforcement Agency's special operations division for nearly a decade and works closely with the family members of overdose victims to build awareness of this crisis. Sara and Derek discuss why this problem is growing, why the government is doing so little to educate families or stop the drug flow, and what parents can do to keep their kids safe.
