Addiction: Crime or Illness

Tuesday, December 4, 2018
7:00pm – 8:00pm

Storrs Campus
Oak 107

We will be reviewing the national rates for drug addiction, how they came to be, the war on drugs, the now opioid crisis and how these problems have affected numerous communities. Following the presentation of the national statistics and factual information, we will discuss our thought on the topic along with how it is framed in the media. The depiction of the situation as a whole has changed over time so we will look into potential reasons for this change.
