Movie Night: Warning: This Drug May Kill You
Panel Discussion:
Mark Litvine, Marty Walker, Jenny Reese Clark, Brenda Buckner and Brooke Taylor

This film takes an unflinching look at the devastating effects of opioid addiction in the U.S., profiling four families whose lives have been decimated by addictions that all began with legitimate prescriptions to dangerous painkillers. Through the personal and emotional stories of people on the front lines of this epidemic, the film sheds light on the struggles of ordinary people who were prescribed highly addictive opioid pain medications, which are often the gate-way to a very similar opioid, heroin.
