I found out that Heroin is used around the world and has horrible withdrawals. Heroin was first manufactured as a tuberculosis treatment and remedy for morphine addiction. Methadone, developed as a surgical painkiller and the U.S. trade name is “Dolophine” is a replacement treatment for Heroin addiction.
Heroin is like opium and morphine, it comes from the pod of the poppy flower and is the 2nd refinement from opium, morphine is the first refinement from opium. The late 1990s showed a mortality rate of 20x greater than the mainstream population.
Because street drugs are not regulated, each time a person takes street forms of refined opium, they do not know what the dose is and it makes them at a higher risk for overdose. Most people know Heroin as and injected drug, superise, it is also smoked and sniffed. Heroin also quickly breaks down the immune system.
The United Nations reports that about 10 million people use Heroin world wide.
Afghanistan produces about 85% of the world’s opium based drugs. Afghansitan also has some of the worst para-terrorist groups in the world. The spread of illegal illicit drugs has terrorized U.S. youth for decades.
The more educated a child is about the effects and affects of illegal and illicit drugs from a supportive caregiver, the less likely they are to try drugs.34.072913 -118.399810
