“The Opioid Crisis Isn’t A Metaphor” Download

Download May 18th, 2018

Have you ever read an article or an opinion piece and wished you could talk with the person who wrote it? Me too.

After reading the piece below and some of the public responses to said piece, I decided to send an email to Buzzfeed reporter Dan Vergano and find out who he was and how he came to write what he wrote. Dan was funny, generous and also very knowledgeable about the current opioid epidemic.

Opinion: The Opioid Crisis Isn't A Metaphor

There is a tendency, among those lucky enough to not be personally affected, to speak about the opioid epidemic in sweeping cultural and political language, declaring it a symptom of all that ails the country. People invoke shuttered factories and jobless towns, turning nationwide addiction to a deadly chemical into another front in the culture wars.
