America's Heroin Epidemic

Chris Newcomb, M.Div.

Heroin used to be a drug that was associated with dark places in the bad parts of town.  It was never something that was considered a real possibility to use by 'respectable' people wanting to have a little fun.  In fact, growing up in the late '70's and 80's, it was understood that heroin was a line you just didn't cross.  It was anathema.  It was the enemy.  Poison.  Lethal.  Not anymore.

Viewpoints have shifted towards heroin because of it's lower street cost and perceived 'chic' party drug status.  Due to the growing cost of prescription pills on the street, people feel like they would do better financially if they use heroin.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Heroin kills people dead.  Believe it.  It's a fact.  

Please take a moment to educate yourself about this growing epidemic that crosses all boundaries regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, educational level, or economic station in life.  Pass it on to anyone you think would benefit from it.  You can read more here!
