Plenty of action has been taken to combat the growing problem of heroin; now, state officials are taking those actions one step further by joining the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Heroin Task Force. While the group may sound like drug-fighting superhero allegiance, it’s actually a regional venture that enables police and prosecutors to more easily share information across state lines.
There are several bills pending in the state legislature that also address the heroin issue, some more punitive (charging dealers with murder if one of their customers dies from an overdose) than others (requiring health insurance providers to cover substance abuse treatment).
