Black Tar Heroin
Black tar heroin is an illegal opiate drug that is formed from the incomplete acetylation (the process of introducing an acetyl group into a compound) of morphine. Black tar heroin is not actually heroin. It obtained the name black tar heroin because when it was first discovered, it was thought to actually be another form of heroin. Even though this drug may have small amounts of heroin in its makeup, it is closer related to the drug morphine. Black tar heroin is illegal and deadly. It has negative effects on a person’s body even after one use and is highly addictive. Many teens and people living in poverty use black tar heroin because it is cheaper than actual heroin or morphine, and you obtain a quicker high.
