    Latino USA Battling Addiction in New Mexico The state of New Mexico has the highest rate of drug-related deaths in the nation. Hispanics and Native Americans have borne the brunt of this devastation. In Albuquerque's historically Latino South Valley neighborhood, black tar heroin has plagued families for generations. And prescription opiates have become an even bigger problem. But these days, the community is tapping into centuries-old cultural practices to help addicts find a new path to recovery.

    Marketplace Money College IDs as Credit Cards For about 40 percent of U.S. college students, their student IDs not only get them into the library, but also pays for dinner, a movie or whatever they want. That's because more and more IDs also function as debit cards. But there's growing concern over how colleges and banks work out those co-branded agreements.
