Preface. The scourge of opioid addiction is deeply woven throughout world history, and our own Civil War produced roughly 200,000 addicts who spent their remaining years navigating shattered limbs and unstable minds. Fast forward a century-and-a-half.
A 2014 report revealed that 1.9 million Americans were addicted to prescription opioids, and that 18,893 lost their lives to prescription opioids that single calendar year.
Jellybeaners is a contemporary novel set in the heart of Appalachia, revealing the money ties, political corruption, wasted lives, and overall cash-churning nature of the prescription pill culture from perspectives spanning both sides of the law.
Jellybeaners is enjoying great support and is selling in the US and abroad. Here are all the available US sales outlets at this point. Thanks for buying! Sadly, the opioid epidemic is not going away anytime soon, but this novel will help you understand its history and current sweep across the US.
