Are They Playing Politics With This Heroin Epidemic?

Oh you betcha they do and have for many years now. The sad reality is that the War on Drugs isn't working and hasn't worked for many years. People will continue to die from overdose. On this side of the addiction there are so many who want something to happen, yet do not want to be a voice for advocacy in change.

David W Murray a writer with the Huffington Post says:
The Senate held a hearing last week on the addiction and overdose crisis caused by heroin, illicit trafficking of the extremely potent drug fentanyl, and prescription opiate diversion and misuse. The crisis was responsible for 29,467 American deaths in 2014 alone, and many more in 2015 for which there is no final, official total yet.
