Other Topics at the 2022 Summit:
- The Arizona Drug Threat
- The Impact of Marijuana – From medicalization to legalization
- Through the Eyes of Youth – No time to fail. How we must work toward progress
Sam Quinones, an independent journalist, hit the road to investigate the new threats of fentanyl and cheap methamphetamine, discovering how addiction is exacerbated by consumer-product corporations. “In a time when drug traffickers act like corporations and corporations like traffickers,” he writes, “our best defense, perhaps our only defense, lies in bolstering community.” Amid a landscape of despair, Quinones found hope in those embracing the forgotten and ignored, illuminating the striking truth that we are only as strong as our most vulnerable.
Weaving analysis of the drug trade into stories of humble communities, The Least of Us delivers an unexpected and awe-inspiring response to the call that shocked the nation in Sam Quinones’s award-winning first book Dreamland.
