Heroin problems grip New Jersey

Gov. Christie updates the state's fight with the drug.

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey visited Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch on Tuesday to discuss the state's battle against addiction.

Now, months later, Christie says the money has been well spent in helping to get many addicts into treatment.
