Our project uses the Portugal model of decriminalization to visualize the future of the opioid crisis
We wanted to look at a successful model of decriminalization in order to improve the US opioid crisis.
It visualizes the projected opioid-related death rate in the US in 2 ways. 1. If we follow our current model of strict enforcement of drug laws and 2. If we follow a model that prioritizes rehabilitation over criminalization. We also have a map that succinctly shows the opioid related deaths by state from the years 1999-2014 using open source data.
Finding accurate and detailed information because data around drug enforcement is not fully available.
We're proud of the research that went into finding open source data and also the future of our project.
Learned R and data visualization.
