Why is Heroin ILLEGAL ?


Most medications once consumed, the body metabolizes the medication into a “active metabolite”

Soma/Carisoprodol is metabolized in the body to Meprobamate.. which at one time was sold under the brand name Equanil/Miltown

Hydrocodone is metabolized in the body to Dilaudid/Hydromorphone

Codeine is metabolized in the body to Morphine.

Oxycodone is metabolized in the body to Oxymorphone  .. which is available commercially as Opana

Heroin is metabolized in the body to MORPHINE

Before the Harrison Narcotic Act 1913  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrison_Narcotics_Tax_Act    Morphine and Heroin were sold OTC.

Like other things that are determined by our politicians, bureaucrats and our judicial system…. decisions, laws, rules and regulations are seemingly developed without applying any scientific facts.

  1. Apparently it’s legal in the UK, as some friends of mine have been on it as a prescription drug. They were a little shocked to find that it was actually heroin, they did not know it by that name.
