Letters: We must be forever vigilant in war on drugs

Editor:I read the article regarding heroin in Yavapai County and Arizona statewide. I have been involved with Matforce since 2011 and actively working on prescription drug abuse and misuse reduction initiative from the governor's office. The recent presentation on T.V. last Tuesday evening and your article do point out that an unintended consequence of what we have accomplished thus far has caused a rise in the use of heroin by our youth due to decreased supply of prescription narcotic drugs and the drop in price of heroin by the cartels involved in supplying that material.
