Allie Marshall WFUV News

For the first time, state attorneys general in the Northeast are banding together to fight what they describe as a rising heroin problem. They say the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Heroin Task Force will serve to create formal secure channels about drug-related issues. The attorneys general of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts have all signed on. Over 98% of major heroin trafficking cases that go through the New York Attorney General’s Office have involved heroin flowing between New York and the other neighboring states in the coalition.
