Still reeling after binge-watching Netflix's Tiger King?
Let us introduce you to the new TV documentary that is currently on the tip of everyone's tongues: How To Fix A Drug Scandal.
The true crime docu-series starts by following chemist Sonja Farak, who worked as a lab technician in Amherst lab testing evidence in drug cases, and often served as a witness in court.
She had a drug addiction of her own, and eventually started using meth, amphetamines, LSD, and other drugs while working - stolen from the controlled substances used for testing and, later on, even from the evidence boxes.
It isn't just Farak who comes under the spotlight in the series, as Massachusetts chemist Annie Dookhan's deception is also detailed.
Working at the Hinton drug lab in Boston, Dookhan was also in court at around the same time, for tampering with evidence.
It emerged that she had lied about testing evidence when in fact she hadn't.
So, basically, both women had impacted thousands of people's criminal sentencings with their carelessness and dishonestly.
As the series goes on, How to Fix a Drug Scandal explores both cases and the gaping hole in administrative oversight that made them possible.
Just as you think it can't get any crazier, it does... also unearthing cover-ups from district attorneys' offices as the scandals took place.
Taking to Twitter after watching the series, one fan wrote: "Y'all thought tiger king was wild, watch how to fix a drug scandal on @netflix #howtofixadrugscandal #Netflix".
While another agreed: How to Fix a Drug Scandal on @Netflix is somehow crazier than to me."
"Tiger King may be crazy, but have you seen How to Fix a Drug Scandal?! Motherf*cking insane!," a third wrote.
As a fourth chipped in: "If you've finished Tiger King...go ahead and start 'How to fix a drug scandal' because WOW."
If you've finished Tiger King...go ahead and start 'How to fix a drug scandal' because WOW.
