MONROE - Heroin is still the drug of choice in Green County, but meth may see a resurgence in the coming year. That was the opinion of state and county officials who met Friday morning for a round table discussion on drug abuse, mental health and other issues facing law enforcement.

Janis Ringhand, D-Evansville, of the 15th District, along with 51st Assembly Rep. Todd Novak, R-Dodgeville, and 80th Assembly Rep. Sondy Pope, D-Mt.
