Lax County In Top 13 WI Counties For Heroin Abuse
Heroin abuse has put La Crosse County on the map, and not in a good way...
The state justice department says 13 Wisconsin counties reported 30 or more heroin cases to the state crime lab last year...and La Crosse County is one of them. The county had 16 heroin cases the previous year...compared to no cases, as recently as 2009. Most of the counties recording heavy heroin use are in the southeastern part of the state. Only 15 Wisconsin counties had no heroin cases in 2013, including Vernon and Crawford Counties.
