Chicago leads in heroin-related ER visits: A growing teen epidemic



  • Kimberley Zagoren 5 years ago

    This is so scary. Parents need to get through to their teens about the dangers of drugs, especially heroin. Thanks for the informative article.

    Very informative and scary. No amount of drug abuse prevention seems to get through to the kids (and young adults) nowadays. I guess they all think it won't happen to them, and don't realize the addictive effects of their first use of the drug.

    This is very scary. Parents and teachers need to press the issue that drugs are bad.

    Thanks for sharing this informative article, more teens should know that drugs never do the body any good.

    um your tolerance doesn't go up if you only use once or twice a month... especially if you're just snorting it.. Kids today aren't stupid and know the risks of the drug.. they also know that daily use will cause addiction

    Pepper22: If kids today knew their limits and the risks, heroin deaths would not be rising dramatically. A user has no way of knowing what the purity of the drug or what it is cut with: meaning that a first time user can overdose.

    Interesting about it first being marketed by Bayer in the 1800's. I can only imagine how many things that were used back then has become an issue in this day and age.
