Attorney General Mark Herring Presents ‘Heroin: The Hardest Hit’ in Fredericksburg

by | Apr 27, 2016 | Government

Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring will be at Germanna Community College on April 28, 2016, to present “Heroin: The Hardest Hit,” a documentary about the heroin and prescription drug epidemic and its effects on Virginians. More Virginians were killed in 2014 by heroin and prescription opioid drug overdose than car crashes, Herring said.

The film examines the epidemic from all angles, with Virginians sharing their own stories of addiction and overdose, testimony from parents who lost their children to an overdose, and insights from law enforcement and public health professionals who are working to address the crisis. A panel discussion will follow the screening.

The free event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday in Sealy Auditorium at Germanna’s Fredericksburg Area Campus, 10000 Germanna Point Dr.

The film is one example of the preventive and educational measures Herring’s office is pursuing to make all Virginians more aware of the growing crisis involving heroin and prescription opiate abuse and the risks associated with these dangerous drugs. For more information, visit the website
