Abstract: 

The fentanyl crisis is new, but the opioid crisis is not. Watch the videos below to learn about how fentanyl fits within a pattern of opioid crises that goes back to the 1970s; the overlapping issues of homelessness, addiction, mental illness and criminality; how police are responding and the ethical challenges they face; and long-term solutions based on a practical understanding of the larger issues.
