Quinones to give presentation on sale of drugs Oct. 15


Sam Quinones, author of Dreamland:  The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic, will give a presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session, at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15 , in Memorial Student Center BE5.

Dreamland   explores how the relentless marketing of pain pills, coupled with crews from a small town on the West coast of Mexico who sell heroin freely in America’s heartland, has resulted in a collision that has led to America’s greatest drug scourge.

The program is sponsored by HIMG, Create Huntington, the Adam Johnson Scholarship, the history department, Student Health Programs, Military and Veterans Affairs, and the social work department.
