Halting Heroin - Black Tar Heroin


The face of heroin is getting younger and younger. This 10TV News broadcast explains heroin addiction and what some in Ohio are doing to stop it. Heroin is becoming cheaper and easier to find, which explains in part why heroin is becoming an increasingly large problem in the state, especially for young adults. Law enforcement says that this black tar heroin is coming directly from Mexican drug cartels that are specifically targeting Ohio because of its central location in the Midwest. More so than ever before, heroin is readily available in suburban neighborhoods. As much as 80 to 90 percent of all crime in many Ohio cities can be connected to heroin.
