The Consequences Of America’s Invasion Of Afghanistan: NYC Heroin Deaths Highest In A Decade (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2014):

While back in May Obama promised America’s mission in Afghanistan was over, and all US troops would leave the country by the end of 2016, the “unintended” consequences of the US presence in this favored by al-Qaeda country will haunt America for a long time. And especially New York, where according to a new report by the Department of Mental Hygiene, the number of people who died from unintentional heroin overdoses in New York City last year was the highest in over a decade.

As WaPo reports, in New York, “where the overall rate of drug overdose deaths has dramatically risen since 2010, there is a national problem playing out across the city’s streets. The number of overdoses involving heroin in the city has significantly increased since 2010, accounting for more than half of New York City’s overdoses last year. And more than three-quarters of the overdoses in the city involved an opioid of some kind.”

The number of heroin overdose deaths has risen every year since 2010, as the number of deaths has more than doubled to 420 people last year from 209 just three years earlier:
