Generation Oxy is a straight-from-the-headlines story of Florida high school kids who raked in millions riding the OxyContin wave and became one of the country’s largest narcotics trafficking organizations in just a few years. Their tales of excess will have you shaking your head and turning the pages.”

—Bruce Porter, author of Blow: How a Small-Town Boy Made $100 Million with the Medellín Cocaine Cartel and Lost It All

“Wow. What a tale.

—Michael Finkel, New York Times bestselling author of True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa

Generation Oxy offers a fascinating first-person glimpse into the human tragedy of the prescription drug epidemic sweeping across the country, an unfolding saga of corporate greed, medical malpractice, and the awful logic of addiction. Doug Dodd was just a kid when he realized he could get rich dealing oxy, a decision to roll the dice on drug dealing that forever changed his life.

—Guy Lawson, New York Times bestselling author of Arms and the Dudes: How Three Stoners from Miami Beach Became the Most Unlikely Gunrunners in History

Heart-pounding, adrenaline-rushing insight into the world of teenage gangsters dealing in prescription drugs. A roller-coaster ride of highs and lows as the kids make millions, Dodd and Cox’s book is a thoroughly enjoyable if chilling read.”

—Tim Newark, author of Boardwalk Gangster: The Real Lucky Luciano

“With drugs, cash, and teens, Generation Oxy is Scarface on spring break. Douglas Dodd’s fast-paced tale of his meteoric rise from poverty to teenage drug lord pulls back the curtain on how America’s opioid addiction was ignited and fueled.

—Jen Antonelli, two-time Emmy-winning producer of Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen

Another compelling story of America’s failed war on drugs, Generation Oxy makes it clear that the real kingpins are the executives of Big Pharma and the legislators who perpetuate this horrific fiasco.”

—Richard Stratton, author of Smuggler’s Blues and Kingpin

[Generation Oxy] is a compelling piece.”

—Jeff Tietz, reporter for Rolling Stone

“An original but classic tale of rags to riches. This story has it all—hardships, corruption, love, money, greed, and turmoil. An underprivileged kid with an entrepreneurial spirit was given an opportunity for success and he took it. A must-read.

—Anthony Curcio, author of Heist and High and Amazon top-sellers, Stephen Curry: The Boy Who Never Gave Up and Lebron James: The Boy Who Became King

“[Dodd’s] writing is very sharp and he knows how to tell a story…clearly talented.

—Richard Schapiro, reporter for GQ

“It reads like a movie script: a well-liked teenager and high school wrestler makes millions of dollars selling opioids with his friends, all while remembering to mow his grandmother’s lawn. His life of pills and sex turns harrowing as he faces life in federal prison.

—Rebecca Morris, New York Times bestselling author of If I Can’t Have You and A Killing in Amish Country (both with Gregg Olsen), and Ted and Ann—The Mystery of a Missing Child and Her Neighbor Ted Bundy
