This week we talk with family members effected by the heroin crisis and visit a candle light vigil organized by the organization The Addict's Mom. As the opioid epidemic continues to ravage the region their voices are more important than ever. Also, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand looks to protect our beautiful landscape in a visit to the Adirondacks to discuss ways to fight invasive species.
