Heroin use, addiction up sharply among U.S. whites: study -

Heroin use, addiction up sharply among U.S. whites: studyBy Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - Heroin use in the United States has risen five-fold in the past decade and dependence on the drug has more than tripled, with the biggest jumps among whites and men with low incomes and little education, researchers said on Wednesday. Whites aged 18 to 44 accounted for the biggest rise in heroin addiction, which has been fueled in part by the misuse of opioid prescription drugs. The findings are troubling because the people most affected have few resources to deal with the problem, said Dr. Silvia Martins, an associate professor of epidemiology at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, and her colleagues.

Decades-old green power law is a fresh nuisance to U.S. utilities -

Decades-old green power law is a fresh nuisance to U.S. utilitiesNorth Carolina’s solar boom is rooted in a federal law enacted four decades ago – one that has only recently had much impact. The law is now emerging as a boon for many solar developers in select states, but a nuisance to many power companies, including North Carolina’s top utility, Duke Energy Corp. The federal Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA), passed in 1978, requires utilities in many states to buy renewable power from small providers – provided they can sell it at a price comparable to power from fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas.
