What we're watching: Trump's startling anti-opioid ads

The Trump administration has released a series of four public service advertisements designed to highlight the dangers of opioid addiction, described to Axios last week as having a "shock the conscience" rawness.

The details: The ads, featuring the true stories of four Americans, graphically illustrate the lengths young people saddled with an opioid addiction have gone to in order to obtain more prescription drugs, including breaking one's own bones and purposefully crashing a car.
