THUMBS UP: We can do without most of the sequels and reboots coming out of Hollywood, but as the opioid epidemic rages on, we’re certainly looking forward to the Tuesday premiere of “Heroin Still Kills” two decades after the groundbreaking original “Heroin Kills” educational video was released. Presented by the Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office and the Carroll County Health Department, the video is set to be shown on Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. at the theater in the Scott Center at Carroll Community College in Westminster. “Heroin Kills” received national acclaim when it was released and continues to be shown as part of an eighth-grade curriculum and in treatment facilities, Linda Auerback, substance abuse prevention supervisor for the Bureau of Prevention, Wellness and Recovery at the health department, told us. The new film tells the story of a local girl and how her addiction grew from prescription pain pills to heroin use. Most of those who worked on the film are local, including the music being done by rapper B-Rain. Auerback told us that, ironically, “Heroin Still Kills” was funded by drug forfeiture money, “so it is sponsored by local drug dealers.” We hope the film is a gritty and realistic look at opioid abuse, and we hope it can make as much of an impact as the original.
