The word heroin comes from Bayer officials who thought the new painkiller would be an effective substitute for morphine, “nonaddictive” yet effective.
They celebrated its power by putting “hero” in the name and sold it over the counter.
Heroin a semi-synthetic opioid drug synthesized from morphine, also known as diamorphine, and is a derivative of the opium poppy.
It is illegal to manufacture, possess, or sell diacetylmorphine in many countries.
Frequent and regular use of heroin is associated with tolerance and physical dependence, which may develop into addiction.
Oh, and don’t do drugs. Drugs are for losers.
