Heroin is the street name for the drug Diamorphine, a derivative of Morphine. The white crystalline form considered “pure heroin” is usually the salt "diacetylmorphine hydrochloride." An estimated 85% of the world’s heroin comes from Afghanistan, but Mexico is the source of cheaper "black tar" heroin.
Heroin is extremely addictive. Use is associated with petty and violent crimes. Heroin is usually injected, so use is a vector for transmission of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis. US authorities consider heroin a serious threat to society. Because it is cheaper yet offers a high similar to legal painkillers, heroin may be considered an alternative for consumers who cannot afford or are not prescribed an adequate supply of pills.
