I was watching World News with Diane Sawyer this evening and she included a story about heroin use in the suburbs. It’s a bigger problem in suburbs than most people think. I have the link to the article and video posted below.
One of the reasons I’m posting this is because I know many of you are reading books about drugs for your trimester project. Ellen Hopkins has only written about heroin use in Tricks, and she thankfully writes an accurate description of how scary the drug is.
I really want all of you to watch the video and read the article. It’s important for you to be aware of what is happening around you.
