This is a special backgrounder episode of Life & Times. ln February this year, a large-scale, active #heroin mill was found and dismantled in this apartment building in Queens, New York, right across from an elementary school. Millions of dollars of narcotics were confiscated, including 1,000 pills that look like prescription oxycontin pills, but were actually laced with fentanyl. Just those pills alone could have killed 1,000 unsuspecting New Yorkers, who might have thought they were buying a legitimate pain killer. To understand exactly where these drugs are coming from and how they get into communities just like this one, we sat down for an in-depth interview with Derek Maltz, the former DEA agent in charge of the drug administration’s special operation division, who gives us a show and tell of the flow of drugs, cash, and chemicals across the #USA, and what can be done about it. https://www.ntd.com/drug-flow-how-drugs-cash-chemicals-flow-to-the-usa-from-china_596944.html
