The opioid epidemic just keeps getting worse, presenting challenges discussed at length at a White House summit last week. But opioids are not the United States’ only significant drug problem. Among illicit drugs, cocaine is the No. 2 killer and claims the lives of more African-Americans than heroin does.
"Overshadowed by the Opioid Crisis: A Comeback by Cocaine" is from the March 05, 2018 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Austin Frakt and narrated by Kristi Burns.
