Course Description

At the end of the 20th century, the drug problem in America drastically changed. Why did this happen, when did this happen, and what are the results? Who are the substance abusers? How is this directly affecting America? Why is the American drug problem of the 21st century so different than previous drug epidemics? More Americans die from drug overdose than from breast cancer annually. More Americans die every day from drug overdose than die in the average commercial airline crash. Imagine if we had one of those every day? During Stutman's 25-year career with the DEA and his direct experience working undercover, he lived the drug war. Stutman will bring his life experiences along with the best research available to show us what we are up against and how we can empower and protect our children, our families, and our communities against the most devastating drug epidemic in American history.
