Dan Schneider Outlines Plan to start "A People's Lobby" to fight Addiction at Kiwanis Club Meeting

In February of 2020, Netflix released The Pharmacist, a four-episode documentary that recounted the incredible story of St. Bernard pharmacist Dan Schneider, whose son (Danny Jr.) was murdered while attempting to buy crack cocaine in 1999 in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward. When the New Orleans police were unable to handle the case, a grief-stricken Schneider doggedly investigated the murder himself, eventually securing a conviction no one thought possible. From there, he fought against the over prescribing of OxyContin in St. Bernard Parish and surrounding area, and, ultimately, began to challenge big pharmaceutical corporations for their role in the opioid epidemic that has festered in the United States for decades.
