Paramedic Turns Filmmaker To Publicize Meth Impacts

Jan 21, 2020

The opioid painkiller drugs got the lion's share of attention from law enforcement and media in recent years.  But methamphetamine continues to be a challenge, growing in use in the region as opioids and similar drugs got harder to obtain. 

The situation is not just local; a Canadian paramedic who answered many calls to assist meth users ended up making a documentary film showing the ravages of the drug upon its users and society.  Rodney Bodner, who lives in Manitoba, made "Methamphetamine: Community Under Siege." 

We get Rodney on the phone to talk about his work in the ambulance and in the film.
