It's an epidemic that doesn't appear to be letting up. That's what some state officials are saying about heroin abuse in the state. On Monday, state lawmakers and health officials will meet in Albany to discuss ways to stop the issue.
The event comes just days after a SUNY Oswego student died after over-dosing on heroin with three other students. Police are still waiting for lab tests to find out what exactly happened Friday night. News10NBC has learned SUNY Oswego will step up its drug education efforts. Director of Public Affairs Julie Harrison Blissert wants to work with the community to tone down what she calls the "dangerous end of the year party culture." The names of the students involved in the incident have not been released yet. According to our affiliates at CNY Central, the student who died lived on campus, while the other two lived off campus.
