Season 5-Episode 1 – “Gateway to Heroin”
Boston is now home to the nation’s highest rate of opiate (heroin, oxycodone) addiction and overdose. Vanguard correspondent Mariana van Zeller investigates the story behind the dramatic spike in drug abuse over the course of the last decade and along the way uncovers a disturbing new trend: an alarming escalation among addicts from prescription drugs to heroin, a cheaper and more potent alternative to OxyContin that’s all too readily available on the streets of New England.


Massachusetts is the most depressing place in the country
By Peter Schwarz last year
I just got through watching the documentary "Gateway To Heroin" , the one based on Massachuettes. I feel very little sympathy for these people, I live in Florida and I am currently on disability through the government for a number of things that cause me chronic pain and thanks to these little girls and boys running their little drug rings I can no longer get most of the medication I NEED or I have to spend all day going from pharmacy to pharmacy to get them. I have four children, three of which are 18 or older and they are not drug addicts so all I have to say to the kids up north with no futures is all you have created is a situation in which people who really need these types of medications can't get them, hope you enjoy prison or death because that's the only two things you have to look foward to.
