Church to host discussion of opiate epidemic

Feb 16, 2017

Marion — On Sunday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church, 124 Front St., will hold a book study discussion of the bestseller, “Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic,” by Sam Quinones.

An investigative journalist, Quinones weaves together two tales of how the opiate epidemic spread across the United States, in which aggressive marketing of pain killers by pharmaceutical companies combined with a changed approach from the poppy-growing region of northwest Mexico, and led to a national crisis.

All are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
