27 Investigates: Heroin Crisis

Heroin crisis

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – WKBN 27 First News is committed to help find a local solution to the heroin crisis.

The hour-long special, “27 Investigates: Heroin Crisis,” looks at how heroin is impacting the courts and police, and which laws might have to change.

Congressman Tim Ryan was part of our discussion panel, along with Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Jeff Greene, Judge Jack Durkin — who runs the drug court in Mahoning County, and Tyler Wisser — a recovered addict who now works for the Ohio Teen Challenge.
