I’ve written about it before – we are in a heroin epidemic. We are seeing more and more of it. More on traffic stops, more in overdose medical calls, more in calls like the one where the driver “fell asleep” at a fast food drive up window–he wasn’t asleep he was under the influence of heroin. Our drug team is finding more and more of it.
This is an interesting article done by the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. It give some great detail about where the cheap heroin is believed to be coming from and its impacts on the community. I doubt that things are much different here in Michigan than what they are seeing.
