Independent producer Nadia Ramlagan is on a mission to collect and tell stories from those caught up in the opioid epidemic.  The Maryland native recently moved to the Lexington area and discovered that Kentucky's second largest city has a long history when it comes to heroin and other opiates, starting with the establishment of the now defunct Narco Farm in 1935.  Nadia's reports, which we're dubbing The OA Chronicles - (OA - short for Opioid Addiction,) will soon air exclusively on WUKY.
