Addicts who find it difficult to get their hands on expensive prescription opioids like Oxycontin are turning to a cheaper, easier-to-get alternative: Heroin. How easy is it to get that? Heroin users in a state study on drug abuse trends say it's "falling out of the sky." We'll talk about the alarming rise in heroin use, particularly among teens, and find out what law enforcement is doing to respond.

Guests

Steve Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio
Jonathan Lee, President & CEO, Signature Health Inc
