David Napier, owner of The Old City Bar in Richmond’s former slave-trading district, is president of the Shockoe Bottom Neighborhood Association, is photographed in his bar in Richmond, Va., Wednesday April 3, 2014. The association has backed an economic development proposal that includes a baseball stadium. Some opponents argue the national pastime shouldn’t be played were slaves were jailed, bought and sold. Napier says the development can enhance the city’s oldest neighborhood and also pay homage to the hundreds of thousands of slaves that were traded in the streets of the Bottom in the decades leading to the Civil War.

This photo of a poster provided by the Library of Virginia advertises the sale of slaves in Richmond, Va., in February 1812. The city was a slave-trading center, second only to New Orleans, in the half-century leading to the Civil War. A proposal to build a minor league baseball stadium in Shockoe Bottom, the city’s oldest neighborhood and the center of the once-thriving slave trade, has drawn criticism from some who believe the area is sacred ground and shouldn’t be bulldozed for a ballpark. The city says it will recover and display artifacts related to the slave trade. (AP Photo/Library of Virginia)

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)
