This is Heroin
Robert Ashton (au)
Heroin was a terrible mistake. Its creator was seeking a non-addictive alternative to morphine, already a social problem. He failed. While morphine is up to 1,000% stronger than opium, heroin is 8 times more potent than morphine & just as addictive. Heroin can mean death for the user by overdose, poison, or murder, as well as infection of AIDS & hepatitis from dirty needles. But what are the direct physical effects? How addictive is the drug? What are the stages of withdrawal? Can you use it & come off safely? Would a legalized, controlled & regulated supply of heroin reduce overdoes deaths & enable users to live higher-quality lives? International in its scope & unshrinkingly frank, this book presents the social & physical reality of heroin. Illustrations.
