Heroin

Slang - smack, horse, mud, junk, brown sugar, black tar

Get the facts.

 Heroin affects your brain. Heroin enters the brain quickly. It slows down the way you think,  slows down reaction time and slows down memory. This affects the way you act and make
 decisions.

 Heroin affects your body. Heroin poses special problems for those who inject it because of  the risk of HIV, hepatitis B and C and other diseases that can occur from sharing needles. These  health problems can be passed on to sexual partners and newborns.

 Heroin is super addictive. Heroin is highly addictive because it enters the brain so rapidly.
 It particularly affects those regions of the brain responsible for producing physical dependence.

 Heroin is not what it may seem. Despite the glamorization of "heroin chic" in films, fashion  and music, heroin use can have tragic consequences that extend far beyond its users. Fetal
 effects, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, violence and crime are all linked to its use.
