The heroin epidemic seems to be getting worse and more creative by the day. Everything you know about the drug may change when you hear what was found in the Elmira area of New York.

So innocently disguised, Police found a drug that appeared to be SweetTarts candy which even includes a very similar "S" stamped onto it. What it actually contains is not sugary sweet at all, but a mix of Xanax, fentanyl and heroin which could be making its way within the Capital Region.
