Setting aside all the political strife over health care and Russia, Central Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis is part of a bipartisan task force to combat heroin addiction. At a task force news conference in Washington, Davis said heroin became a drug of choice as government took steps to cut back on over-prescriptions of such opioids as Vicodin, OxyContin, and codeine.
