In 2008 state fatalities due to crack, coke, heroin and other drug overdoses were down to their lowest in nearly a decade. Overdose deaths dropped more than a quarter from the previous year to 666, but don't thank Satan. Officials say an opiate antidote drug called naloxone, distributed by community groups as part of heroin users' emergency kits, may have helped lower the number. The AP reports that overdoses remain the third most common cause of death for New Yorkers between 25 and 34. Still the state's most ubiquitous illegal (though not for long?) drug remains marijuana.
