Video Interview Editor/Publisher

Q: What are your thoughts on the heroin epidemic?

BUSCHEL: I don’t know if it’s an epidemic. According to the dictionary, it’s not. The definition of “epidemic” is not something that people do to themselves. It’s a disease that spreads from one person to another through contact. So I wouldn’t call it an epidemic. That’s a misnomer. It is a crisis. It is a national disgrace. It is a profound sickness in America that so many people are in so much pain that they’d rather die than face reality on a daily basis. That’s a tragedy. I mean I think it goes hand-in-hand with the downfall of … the American Dream is now finally over.
