Is Baltimore the Heroin Capital of America?
By Cohen & Dwin, P.A. on February 15, 2018 | In Medical Malpractice
According to a National Geographic program that airs on August 27th, Baltimore is “where you want to be” if you are looking for heroin. The program, “Drugs, Inc.: The High Wire,” features masked “drug dealers” discussing their various run-ins with police and experience selling drugs in Baltimore. Very few of these speakers are identified.
By and large, programs like this are sensationalized to increase viewership. What’s worrisome here is how perception can influence action – and in a country where SWAT raids have increased 1400% over the past 20 years, unnecessary action can lead to serious violations of a suspect’s rights.
