Indiana Sees Resurgence in Heroin Popularity

With 10 deaths linked to heroin overdoses so far this year, police and doctors in Indiana are concerned that heroin is growing in popularity, the Associated Press reported Sept. 2.

"My sense is that it's not a new problem, but it has increased, and its use has probably expanded across a lot of socioeconomic groups," said Bloomington Police Capt. Joe Qualters.

Although heroin is often found in urban neighborhoods, police in Bloomington are seeing signs of a local heroin market in the college town.

According to local and federal investigators, undercover agents purchased more than 40 grams of heroin from local dealers in Bloomington so far this year.
