Mtn. Talk: The Opioid Epidemic in Rural America

This week on Mountain Talk we hear former head of the New York office of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Bob Stutman, speaking about the Opioid Epidemic in Rural America. Audio for this evening’s program was recorded by WMMT’s Benny Becker who attended Stutman’s presentation to teachers at Letcher County Central High School on October 16, 2017. In his talk, Stutman discusses his experiences working for the DEA, and his perspective on the Opioid crisis.
