Massachusetts' opioid crisis continued to be a major story of 2015.
Early in the year, the state released staggering statistics showing that close to four people die in Massachusetts every day from opioid overdoses. Just last week, Gov. Baker became emotional when speaking during the screening of a new HBO movie, set on Cape Cod, about the nation's heroin problem.
WBUR's Martha Bebinger joined Deborah Becker on Morning Edition to discuss the issue.
