“A full-blown heroin crisis” - Vermont Governor’s speech

At the beginning of Year 2014, in the state of the states speeches, Vermont Governor focused almost his entire talk on the problem of drug addiction.  Opioid addiction has dramatically worsened in recent years according to NIDA statistics, and it especially poses a huge threat in New England area. In the lab, drug addiction is a main research topic we are focusing on. Hopefully, with the help of advanced imaging techniques, we could gain a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of addiction.
