Our video is essentially a breakdown of the common types of prescription drugs that are being abused and how these epidemics came to be/affect the country. We researched the effects of all three major classes of prescription drugs and found out how the government is attempting to handle issues revolving around prescription drugs. For our interview, we talked to a woman who leads an organization that promotes the battle against prescription drug abuse. Honestly I didn’t have a good reason to chose this topic, I just thought it would be an interesting thing to research.
I created the video for this project and wrote some of the script.
