Wisconsin officials continue to grapple with heroin deaths

Heroin and opioid addictions -- and overdoses -- continue to plague Wisconsin and many other states. Public health officials and law enforcement agencies have been tackling the problem on a number of fronts.  The latest here in Wisconsin premiered Tuesday night.  It's a documentary produced by WisconsinEye, the state's equivalent to C-Span, and targets children.  

Attorney General Brad Schimel attended the first public screening, and talked about the movie and other campaigns.  He told Marti Mikkelson why such efforts are crucial.
