The opioid crisis has claimed over 500,000 lives in the past decade. It is easier than ever for young people to procure drugs with dealers a few taps of a button away via social media apps like Snapchat and TikTok. Sam Quinones, author of 'Dreamland' and 'The Least of Us,' and Matt Capelouto, author of 'Drug-Induced Homicide,' discuss how young people are procuring drugs.
