Across the Nation, Around the State, and Across the Upper Cumberland the Opiod Crisis continues to take lives. The number of Tennesseans who died from drug overdose jumped 12% last year. Some 1,600 people lost their lives due to drug overdoses, and that number is believed to be low because of the way the number’s are reported. It’s a drug problem that keeps changing and morphing…when we feel that we have a grip on one piece of it another piece explodes. No one knows that better than Thomas Farmer, TBI’s special agent in-charge of the Dangerous Drugs Taskforce. He sees Tennessee’s drug problem up close.
