The Doctors: ‘Prescription Thugs’ Documentary
The United States consumes 75% of the world’s prescription drugs yet we make up just 5% of the world’s population. There’s a new documentary Prescription Thugs that highlights that exact issue. Chris Bell is the filmmaker behind the documentary, reporting that every 19 minutes someone dies of an accidental overdose, which is why it’s truly a national epidemic. Chris joined the show to loud applause, explaining that the catalyst for the film was the death of his brother from a drug overdose.
