So…this is happening in the Central Ohio town I grew up in.
I’m beyond impressed that someone took the initiative (and invested their own money) to draw attention to the heroin epidemic that’s ravaging what used to be such a wonderful little town…but where do we go from here?
Some of my hometown friends think it’s ingenious — finally, a legit rallying cry boldly expressed in black and white, the community conscious writ large! But others are worried it’s going to make the already crumbling infrastructure fall even faster — who wants to develop their business in a place filled with junkies and dope-slingers?
