You're welcome! Yes, it is terrible. The good thing is that the country is starting to turn itself around at a grassroots level. It gets into that at the end of the book.

It really gives you hope that corporate greed and drug-running cartels can be toppled by enough public outcry.

It's just about getting people involved. Unfortunately, in this case, it has taken hundreds, it not thousands of deaths to get people to speak out against opiod abuse.

It took having opiod overdose becoming the leading national cause of accidental death to have anyone really look at it like an epidemic. Pretty crazy stuff. It has gone on for too long. Too much money lubricating people's pockets have allowed this to take such a stranglehold on the country at every level of class, race and profession.
