Summary
In fascinating detail, Sam Quinones chronicles how, over the past 15 years, enterprising sugar cane farmers in a small county on the west coast of Mexico created a unique distribution system that brought black tar heroin--the cheapest, most addictive form of the opiate, 2 to 3 times purer than its white powder cousin--to the veins of people across the United States
Summary
Explores the roots of the current opiate crisis, explaining how the rise of the prescription drug OxyContin paralleled the influx of heroin into the United States
