Life expectancies are declining in North America. Someone is dying every two hours in Canada from illicit drug overdose. Fentanyl has become a looming presence. The victims include the poor and forgotten but also professionals, students, and parents, and have remained largely invisible. But not anymore. Benjamin Perrin, a law and policy expert, shines a light in this darkest of corners - and his findings challenge many assumptions about the crisis. Not only does he unveil the many complexities of this situation, but he also offers a new way forward - one that may save thousands of lives.
