ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, APRIL 6, 2014 AND THEREAFTER - FILE - In this August 1971 file photo, American troops who are addicted to heroin sit together at a U.S. Army amnesty center in Long Binh, Vietnam. Heroin’s reputation in the 1970s was "a really hard-core, dangerous street drug, a killer drug, but there’s a whole generation who didn’t grow up with that kind of experience with heroin," said New York City Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan, whose office was created in 1971 in response to heroin use and related crime. "It’s been glamorized, certainly much more than it was during the '70s." (AP Photo/Neal Ulevich)
