This week on The Scope News, we're dedicating a full show to diving into Canada's opioid crisis. 
We talk to Zoe Dodd -- the Toronto harm reduction worker whose rebuke of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about the opioid crisis on a Vice News talk went viral.
We’ll also hear from legalization expert Craig Jones about what the upcoming marijuana laws will mean for decriminalization of opioids and other hard drugs.
And, we talk to the director of the Canadian Harm Reduction Network for an overview of what exactly fentanyl is and the best practises for mitigating the crisis.
