Description

A Philadephia Inquirer investigation revealed that herion abuse is rising among young adults across the nation because of low prices and high purity levels. "Herion has attracted a steady core of older, urban users for generations, but today's resurgence brings new dangers. High purity levels increase the risk of overdose. Low prices make heroin more affordable." The two-part series investigates the reasons why herion use is rising among young adults and ways law enforcement is trying to stop the trend.
