It is a wonderful thing when a local hero, such as retired pharmacist Dan Schneider, gains international attention. It is happening now for Schneider and no one is more deserving. He is featured in a four-part Netflix documentary series, “The Pharmacist.”
The program is riveting television. It starts by chronicling the tragic death of Schneider’s son, Danny Jr. who was killed trying to buy drugs in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. Danny Jr. was only 22 when he was killed, and his drug addiction was unknown to his family.
