NOVA Season 12 Episode 15

In July 1982, a 42-year-old addict in a San Jose, California jail became paralyzed—unable to move or talk. His symptoms, caused by a bad batch of synthetic heroin, were indistinguishable from those associated with Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative nerve disorder that strikes the elderly. NOVA traces the story of a ”designer” drug which could lead to a major medical breakthrough.
