Top 10 stories of 2012 & Solutions to Opiate Addiction in New Mexico…

This week, on NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS – the countdown begins as our Line panelists look at the year’s top stories. As is our custom, NMIF takes the last shows of the year to look back at the public policy and political news that was. We’ve gathered an all-journalist Line panel to determine which news stories made the list…and what made them so important.

Following up on our town hall on opiate addiction, PUBLIC SQUARE’S Megan Kamerick talks to Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry and advocate Jennifer Weiss of the Heroin Awareness Committee about what solutions are being developed.
