Just what I need...
High-purity heroin marketed for U.S., report says
Drug traffickers are targeting middle-class Americans with high-purity heroin that users can smoke rather than inject, a U.N. drug agency warns in a report being released today.
The Vienna-based International Narcotics Control Board - an independent U.N. body that monitors the global drug situation - says producers are tailoring new drug products to meet the sensitivities of Americans who find injecting drugs repulsive.
You've got to hand these drug lords: they know their customers!
That's me: Middle class with a family-oriented, suburban lifestyle.
I have always considered the thought of destroying my life through heroin addiction to be an enticing propostion, but I've hestitated because the idea of needling myself was just...well...icky.
Smokeable heroin? Yeah, that's for me.
