If you’re still left baffled by the on-going big cat war between eccentric Joe Exotic and self-proclaimed ‘Mother Theresa of the cat world’ Carole Baskin on Tiger King, feast your eyes on the next binge-worthy docuseries.
How To Fix A Drug Scandal is the latest true crime docuseries from Netflix, which focuses on chemist Sonja Farak, a former lab technician in Amherst, Massachusetts, who often gave evidence in drug cases and served as a witness in trials.
However, Farak had a secret of her own, and was found to be stealing from the controlled substances used for testing, and even from the evidence boxes, in a bid to feed her meth, amphetamines, and LSD addictions.
The series also looks into Massachusetts-based chemist Annie Dookhan, who appeared in court for tampering with evidence from the Hinton drug lab in Boston. Her court case revealed she had lied about testing evidence, forging thousands of tests in order to gain favour with her superiors and prosecutors.
Both Farak and Dookhan impacted the cases of thousands of people with their crimes.
How To Fix A Drug Scandal explores both women’s’ cases, as well as the holes in the law which enabled them to commit their crimes.
Like Tiger King, the series only continues to get more bizarre as it goes on, as it unearths cover ups from the district attorneys’ offices while the scandals were taking place.
