Every once in awhile, there is a topic so big, that we devote a forum to discussing it in-depth. It gives us the chance to understand all of the sides of the issue, rather than just a few points of view.

Today on WXPR, we look at drugs, specifically opioids and other drugs that are the focus of physicians, law enforcement and the public.

Locally, several organizations have put an emphasis on public awareness and curbing the use of prescription drugs to deal with patients' medical pain. To understand the opioid situation in the Northwoods, WXPR's Ken Krall has put together a forum with several people who work with patients in various ways.
