    Please Do Not Offend These People
    Thank You

    WINFIELD, Mo. -- Mexican drug smugglers are increasingly peddling a form of ultra-potent heroin that sells for as little as $10 a bag and is so pure it can kill unsuspecting users instantly, sometimes before they even remove the syringe from their veins.

    An Associated Press review of drug overdose data shows that so-called "black tar" heroin - named for its dark, gooey consistency - and other forms of the drug are contributing to a spike in overdose deaths across the nation and attracting a new generation of users who are caught off guard by its potency.

    Has to be fake. What drug dealer doesn't cut his product especially when it's so potent that it kills future addicts before they can become hooked? I've never heard anyone accuse drug cartels of being bad at economics...

    It seems very real unfortunately. It seems the black tar heroin originates out of a very poor little town in Mexico and the cheapness of the product has enabled the sellers to make some quick dinero. It's also giving the Oxycontin addicts (lots of them in the US) a far cheaper and less regulated dose of the thing they need. Explained pretty well in this short interview but here's a little snippet: Black-Tar Heroin Lures New Users : NPR
    Also interesting is all that Afghan heroin, the stuff that supplies 90% of the world's market, is being diverted to Russia. Flood of Afghan heroin fuels drug plague in Russia | McClatchy
