Oprah Explores How Teens Are Being Tricked Into Using Heroin

In the premiere episode of “Oprah Prime”, she explores the impact of heroin addiction on teens and young adults. She sheds the light on a startling trend in which teens and young adults are being misled into taking the drug by friends and dealers. In one story, a 20-year old man purchased white powder at a party and was told it was crushed painkillers when in reality it was pure heroin. “We see heroin traffickers really trying to hook prospective new customers into heroin addiction simply by not telling them what it is they’re selling,” says Jack Riley, DEA Special Agent in Charge.
