This week on Briefly we discuss the ways the law can and does address the Opioid Crisis. The Crisis has claimed myriad lives and devastated communities and families across America. This show will be part of a two-part episode. In Part I we discuss local government responses to the crisis and focus on drug induced homicide charges.
Our guests this episode are Keith Humphreys, Esther Ting Memorial Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, and Lindsay LaSalle, Director of Public Health Law and Policy with the Drug Policy Alliance. This episode was produced by David Sandefer and Yosef Schaffel.
