It's a dangerous drug and state lawmakers want to do something about it. On Tuesday, there is a forum on heroin and opioid abuse. It will be held at the Monroe County Office Building from 10:00 a.m. until noon.

This is one of several bi-partisan legislative forums going on across the state. People who have been touched personally by illegal drug use, doctors and members of law enforcement will be there.  The task force was created to find better preventive measures and treatment programs.
