Hoo-ray for Black Tar Heroin!

Here is a pretty interesting article about the rise of black tar heroin on the streets of Denver. With the Taliban gone, heroin purity levels are back up and more people than ever are chasing the dragon (if there's a cooler phrase than "chasing the dragon," I don't know what it is. No wonder people take drugs.)

David Holthouse (who writes for a sister newspaper, the Denver Westword, and also used to be my boss) has written some great true crime before, particularly this, which needs to be read to be believed. Incredible work.
