It’s arguably Baltimore’s largest health crisis: Drug overdoses have taken the lives of 6,360 people in the city since 2010. An even larger number of deaths — more than 17,000— have involved drugs in some way. Reporters working for The Baltimore Banner and The New York Times are investigating the problem and we want to hear from people who have personal experience. We are especially interested in talking to older Black Baltimoreans, or their families, who have struggled with drug use.
