GREENWOOD, S.C. (WSPA) – The Greenwood Police Department is warning parents after finding heroin that resembles marijuana.

Officers said the substance tested positive for heroin, but was green in color and textured which resembled marijuana at first.

“This is not something, people just smoke a little bit and walk away. This is the kind of thing that grips people and puts them in the addiction, recovery process for the rest of your life,” said Public Information Officer with the Greenwood Police Department, Jonathan Link.
