The drug is readily available across the country because of illicit cultivation of opium in Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and many other states of the country, on a large scale. Moreover, it is also smuggled into India from our neighbouring countries like Afghanistan.
What is heroin?
Heroin, also known as diamorphine among other names, is an opioid most commonly used as a recreational drug for its euphoric effects. Medically, it is used in several countries to relieve pain or in opioid replacement therapy. Heroin is typically injected, usually into a vein: however, it can also be smoked, snorted or inhaled. The onset of effects is usually rapid and lasts for a few hours.
Common side effects include: dry mouth, drowsiness, impaired mental function, constipation and addiction. Giving up the habit after long-term use, withdrawal symptoms can begin within hours of last usage.
When administered by injection into a vein, heroin has two to three times the effect as of a similar dose of morphine. It typically comes as a white or brown powder.
