Undoing Drugs AudioBook Summary
From “one of the bravest, smartest writers about addiction anywhere” (Johann Hari, New York Times best-selling author) – the untold story of harm reduction, a surprisingly simple idea with enormous power.
Drug overdoses now kill more Americans annually than guns, cars, or breast cancer. But we have tried to solve this national crisis with policies that only made matters worse.
