Austin Frakt, New York Times contributor and director of the Partnered Evidence-Based Policy Resource Center at the V.A. Boston Healthcare System, examines America’s No. 2 killer among illicit drugs in the United States: cocaine. Frakt shares, “The surge in cocaine deaths has received relatively little attention.
