Healthcast: Fatal heroin overdoses on the rise

The number of fatal drug overdoses from heroin is on the rise in America and the demographics are also changing.

The Centers for Disease Control said they have seen a 40 percent increase in fatal heroin overdoses over the last two years.

The majority of heroin deaths are now white and from the midwest. This is a change from a decade ago, when the most were older black people from the west coast and northeast.
