The opioid crisis is emerging quickly, and fentanyl overdoses are a common occurrence. With undercover reporting to discover what is happening in America, and around the world, Ben Westhoff is answering all your fentanyl questions, and telling what you didn’t know you needed to know.

Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2019 -- America has declared a War on Drugs. The well-known opioid crisis is being discussed and turned into a household phrase. But what does it mean? What is the real crisis? Are pain patients abusing their medication and overusing Fentanyl? Or is there something deeper going in with the drugs people are accessing on the streets? With greed at the helm, derivatives of Fentanyl are sold over the internet and the street drugs are no longer what they used to be. With inconsistencies, no regulations, and no information on the sudden changes in the drugs, people are dying. Discussing this and all details of his book "Fantanyl, Inc." is Ben Westhoff.

Having lost friends to the opioid crisis, Dr. Rebecca Risk wanted to understand more about what was actually going on. Knowing that 20 years ago overdoses weren't as common, it was important to understand why this has changed, and why drugs seem to be a ticking time bomb.
