Mance welcomes Senior Mises Institute Fellow Dr. Mark Thornton to the show. Dr. Thornton recently gave a talk at the Mises Institute Supporters Summit on the opioid crisis that is plaguing the United States. Dr. Thornton lays out a short history of this tragic epidemic that is taking lives every day.
He addresses how doctors prescribe these drugs, how government regulates them and explains what happens when people are forced into the "black market" to sustain their addiction.
