Heroin has become a growing problem in Hawaii, much like in the rest of the United States. Residents here are 2,000 miles away from the mainland, but that hasn't stopped opioid abuse from taking over the islands.
Everyone makes mistakes in their life, with some carrying bigger consequences than others.
Imagine going to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands to see your favorite species of bird. A few friends want to hunt or chase after them. You go along with it, but several die in the act. Not long after, you find yourself facing serious penalties and are arrested.
Hawaii is a state with over 1.2 million people. It may not be a surprise that drug crimes, and others, take place on the Islands, especially since only 3,429 law enforcement officers are present on all eight islands in total.
