Cheese addict ready for new life

Cheese heroin made its debut in northern Dallas in 2005 and stunned many with its price: $2 a dose.

It eventually spread to other areas of Dallas and the suburbs. As the drug proliferated, the number of victims rose.

The epidemic abated a little last year, and the number of arrests fell from 142 in 2006-07 to 57 in 2007-08, according to Dallas Independent School District police.

“Most of our arrests this year were because we got information from other students about people there at school bringing this stuff to school,” said Gary Hodges, assistant chief of police for DISD. “That’s the way we found out about it. The students are trying to clean up their own campuses.” Cheese heroin made its debut in northern Dallas in 2005 and stunned many with its price: $2 a dose.
