The New Heroin Epidemic

Hosted by

We heard at the top of the show about the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, Now, with heroin use up around the country, a kinder, gentler sort of policy solution is in vogue. This past weekend, governors gathered in Washington, D.C., to talk about heroin and prescription drug addiction, and the conversation was about public health solutions to the problem. Madeleine gets an expert to weigh in on this new approach.
