The amount of heroin seized by the U.S. along the border with Mexico authorities increased by 320 percent between 2008 and 2013.

The U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called it an urgent public health crisis the increase in heroin overdose deaths, and said they are stepping up efforts to reduce the sharp increase.
