Description

Heroin, LLC is a multimedia investigation by WBEZ and The Chicago Reader that explores the supply chain and impact of heroin in the Chicago metro area and the Midwest. Heroin overdose deaths are up in Illinois. The drug is purer, it's readily available, and the street price has plummeted. WBEZ and the Chicago Reader set out to examine how heroin gets to Chicago, how it moves throughout the city and suburbs, and how it is moved then throughout the Midwest. Our focus was this supply line, and the lives affected--often ruined--along the way.
