A deeply human story, “Fentanyl, Inc.” is the first deep-dive investigation of a hazardous industry that has created a worldwide epidemic. Drugs like fentanyl, K2, and Spice were all originally conceived in legitimate laboratories for proper scientific purposes, but now rogue chemists change their molecular structures to stay ahead of the law, making the drugs’ effects and much more lethal. Westhoff chronicles the lives of addicted users, victims' families, and law enforcement officers to represent the full anatomy of a calamity we are just beginning to understand.

Presented by the Medical Arts Series.

Books will be available for purchase at the event from Left Bank Books.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
