It's 7 a.m. and we're on an undercover surveillance operation with the Drug Enforcement Agency. **** The explosion of heroin in suburban America isn't by accident. Rather, it is the plan of drug lords from Mexico and Columbia, who strategically market the drug to middle America with new, sophisticated techniques.
Packets of heroin are now stamped with popular brand names like Chevrolet or Prada, or marketed using blockbuster movies aimed at young people, like the Twilight series.
"Those drug traffickers were marketing that Heroin directly towards teenagers," says John Gilbride of the DEA in New York.

See, there are some businesses on the rise under Hussein.
I question the premise. My heroin use is down significantly.
Mine is unchanged.
Mine is up sharply, so the auther is 33% right.
He's a friend of white trash, I'll give him that.
There are more important things to worry about folks....like the racism spouting out of Arizona against “immigrants”!/s
The offense of drug trafficking should be federal and carry a mandatory death sentence. There should be a single one-track court system set up just for them. Between arrest, conviction and completion of sentence with one mandatory appeal should be 2 weeks.
Heroin use is definitely a problem among teens and young adults on Whidbey Island, WA. Sometimes I think the police/sheriffs turn a blind eye to it.
And anyone that would shoot junk into their veins because the package had a Prada logo is a moron.

Mine has the Nike symbol.
These aren’t hardened criminal adults. They are high school and middle school kids being given (free at first) 60% proof heroin (one use is enough to create an addict or overdose).
heroin is no joke. Your kid will do anything to get more. Including breaking and entering your friendly neighbors house while they are sleeping to steal.
I know this for sure, and when caught, that is a class of felony that will put them in a maximum security prison.
A normal kid will go crazy on this before your eyes
Spoken in absolute ignorance of the true cost to our society from meth and herroine use. I suggest you go volunteer at your local jail for a while - or victim help center. Maybe spend a little time just across the border too.
“I question the premise. My heroin use is down significantly.”
Me, too. I haven’t toked Lebanese Blond in decades. (For you virgin puppies out there, we’re not talking females.)
I think we need to legalize all drugs and end the War on Drugs. Then the price will come down and more kids will get to try them and get hooked. Then the criminal suppliers will magically go out of business. /s
