Default Livingston county the heroin capital of MI?

Long story short. My brother lives in Genoa twp in a nicer sub off grand river and latson. My 9 year old niece comes home from a friend house crying. My brother asks what wrong. She said her friends were mean to her because she didn't do what they were doing. My brother asks what was it and she said they were using insulin like grandma. So my brother goes to see what it is they are doing. The kids were shooting up heroin (ages 9-11)

Being a parent my brother takes them to their parents house and on the way calls the police. Once the police show up they do their thing and my brother ask how this could happen and the officer said that Livingston county has the worst heroin problem in the state. Needless to say my niece will no longer be friends with those children any longer. Anyone else ever hear of kids this young doing dope? I feel so bad for the parents and kids involved and so relived that my niece didn't take part.

I don't know I just heard from my brother about an hour ago and that's all he said at the time. The kids were at the playground in the sub. It's a shame

I live is Washtenaw county and I had a girl I graduated with in '09 sell some bad heroin to a guy and kill him. I have also heard that Stockbridge is one of the worst for crystal meth in the state.

I knew Pinckney had a bad heroin problem, but this is really the first I have heard of it in Howell. That is really scary.

Those kids are still in elementary school . I didn't even know what pot was in elementary school, let alone heroin. I could not even imagine seeing a kid that young shoot up.

one of the girls in fenton who OD's was a friend/neighbors daughter and lived next door to my brother at the time. I don't know if this is the same girl you are talking about or not.

I'd like to think/hope/pray/believe I've been a good parent and will continue to be a good enough parent like cj65's brother that my son will be smart enough to do the same thing that his daughter did and come home....

1. How the hell does a 9 year old get their hands on heroin? Sounds like Gramma is shooting up right in front of them and telling them it's her insulin instead.

2. How does anyone have the ability to stick a needle into themself? God I fucking hate needles.

3. Somedays, being a parent is enough stress for me to wish I didn't have that responsibility over my head.....it can be scary.

WTF. As a parent we have so much dam bullshit to worry about these days. I live i live a really nice neighborhood but still worry when I let my oldest go to the park with her friends. I won't let my youngest to go alone. The kids are good kids but you never know what bullshit will influence them there. Ahhhhgggggggg what happened to 20 yrs ago when I used to ride my bike everywhere with no concerns and we played football or baseball anywhere we could.

I live in Pinckney, and it is a known problem here, and throughout Livingston, Washtenaw, Jackson counties...and the state. Dexter, Stockbridge...they all have drug issues these days. My buddy is a teacher in Howell, and he hears all of the horror stories from the area. We just sent a 17 year old family friend to a 90 day rehab facility for heroin use...It's really a frightening reality. I have two step kids, 11 and 10 in pinckney schools...
