Dope is Death is the story of how the Young Lords and Black Panther Party — two inner-city human rights activist groups — created the first acupuncture detoxification program in America. Their drive to create a chemical-free detox program was in response government-funded clinics, which used methadone to curb the painful heroin withdrawal symptoms, but did not focus on eradicating chemical dependency. With Dr. Mutulu Shakur, stepfather of Tupac Shukur, serving as the frontman, the detox program helped hundreds of patients in a safe and effective way and ultimately led to a protocol practiced in over 600 health care facilities in the U.S. alone.
