May 25, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Drug smugglers from Mexico are clandestinely promoting a new form of ultra-pure heroin, which is available for merely $10 a bag. This latest form of heroin is so unadulterated that it can slay unsuspecting users right away, even before they are able to get rid of the syringe from their veins. This new form is magnetizing copious new users by reason of its quite low cost.

American authorities are worried that the drug, which is being referred to as ‘black tar’ owing to its dark and sticky facade, can make heroin popular in the same way crack made cocaine well-liked decades ago.

During the 1970s, heroin was, by and large, smuggled from the Middle East and Asia, and its purity was approximately 5%. But, lately, drug sellers from Mexico, with their enhanced techniques of processing poppies and with the raw ingredients for the drugs, have augmented the level of its purity. The heroin normally discovered by American federal agents these days has a purity level between 50 to 80 percent.

Heroin at once metabolizes in the body and physicians often cannot identify the drug as a reason of death unless there is another piece of substantiation like a needle or syringe in close proximity to the body to back it up. In keeping with the records maintained by the Centres for Disease Control, at the commencement of the decade, nearly 2000 people died yearly from heroin overdoses in the nation.

An inspection conducted to analyze heroin-related deaths demonstrated that the deaths increased 18.2% during 2007- 2008 and 20.3% from 2006- 2008. Police officers deem that the real number of deaths can be way more than illustrated in the inspection. The capture of heroin by these officers along the U.S.-Mexico border had amplified four times from 2008 to 2009, from about 44 pounds to more than 190 pounds.
