Dialogues with Meg Hansen: Opioid carnage – A Vermonter’s story Part 2

Megan West, a 32-year old Sheldon native, became addicted to oxycodone at age 15. Since then, prescription opioids, heroin and crack cocaine have consumed her life. She was federally indicted in 2018 for participating in a mass straw purchase scheme in which she and four other Vermonters bought at least 30 firearms for Boston drug dealers in exchange for heroin and crack cocaine.

In Part 2 of our interview, Megan shares details regarding the federal crime she committed and how time in prison put her on the path to recovery and redemption.

Meg Hansen is the creator and host of “Dialogues with Meg Hansen” on the YCN network.

One thought on “Dialogues with Meg Hansen: Opioid carnage – A Vermonter’s story Part 2

  1. Let me start with saying, I hope she has seen the light but what that being said, she
    has two felony violation ( Drugs & Weapon ) charges………time will tell.

    I like that every junkie always has an excuse or reason why they do what they do, so
    at the age of fifteen, she was already using drugs and never sought help until she was
    caught at thirty-two ?? …….. I have no pity for her !!

    I have been prescribed oxycodone three different times for major surgeries, I never got
    addicted I only took what I thought I needed, these people just like the” high ” and as you
    can see laws don’t matter……………

    Let do another story in a few years, see if she’s on the straight & narrow, If she is I’ll apologize.
