America is in the midst of the largest heroin epidemic in history. Spawned from the mass distribution of prescription opiates, the use of heroin has skyrocketed in recent years and it seems to be affecting everyone.
Heroin, also known as diamorphine, is a highly addictive form of opiate that is primarily consumed for its euphoric effects and pain relieving properties. Long term use of heroin creates physical dependency which can lead to low blood pressure, digestive problems, disorientation, and coma.
