The second, called "1 Pill Can Kill" was more recently created to take a deeper look at the epidemic of fake pills and its impacts on our community, what you can do to keep your family safe, and how Placer County health, law enforcement and education agencies are working to address it. Both podcasts are fantastic and shouldn't be missed!
