How to use heroin in a sentence?

  1. John Scherbenske of the DEA:

    These drugs are being marketed and sold as legal alternatives to marijuana, cocaine, meth and heroin.

  2. Jeremy Douglas:

    The illicit drug market here is at a tipping point as synthetic opioid production appears to be migrating into places with deep governance problems like the Golden Triangle, southeast Asia could well become a source of opioids for other parts of the world while these substances get mixed into or displace part of the regional heroin supply.

  3. William Goodman:

    We know that the people using street drugs – illicit opioids – four out of five started with prescription pills, either they had them prescribed directly or they’re using diverted pills. And often what leads them to go from pills to injection of fentanyl or heroin is that it’s easier to get. You don’t need a prescription and it’s often much less expensive.

  4. John Bouker:

    The federal government doesn't [mess] with us out here, our problem out here is the alcohol, the heroin, not the pot.

  5. Grant Woods:

    This is something that we've seen across the country from the most educated, most sophisticated patient to the least, and we're talking a matter of days not a matter of weeks or months or years. They knew—certainly should have known—that they were going to leave in their wake devastation across this country. Some believe prescription painkiller makers should have known how highly addictive their products were. (Reuters) Woods is helping Ohio sue several prescription painkiller manufacturers and is consulting with several others on their upcoming litigation against the same companies. The basis for their litigation is nearly identical to the strategy used by states against Big Tobacco in the 1990s. Both manufactured a product they allegedly knew to be highly addictive but downplayed the risk to the public. Once hooked, states bore the treatment cost of the resulting public health epidemic. INDIANA MAN KILLS DOCTOR WHO REFUSED TO PRESCRIBE WIFE OPIOIDS I think the responsibility goes to the doctors, goes to the medical rep, goes to the pharmaceutical companies, said Dr. Howard Samuels, founder of The Hills addiction treatment center in Los Angeles. Fox News spoke to several patients at Samuels’ in-patient facility. All of them told a similar story of receiving a painkiller prescription from their physician for anywhere from 60 to 120 pills of powerful opioids like Oxycontin, Vicodin or Norco. The cause of their pain ranged from an auto accident to a broken ankle. My back – I crushed the bottom three vertebrae, then they prescribed me Oxycontin, said a former high school football player from Ohio. A woman from New Jersey added, I was getting 120 oxy a month. When I told him my pain persisted after a few hours, he upped by dosage. Another patient started on Vicodin, but got so addicted he would buy any type of opioid he could find. The White House Office for National Drug Control Policy says 80 percent of heroin users today started their addiction when doctors prescribed pain killers. (Reuters) A doctor is the best drug dealer you can ever get, said the native Angeleno. Once he knew I had the cash I could get anything. My first prescription was $300, and about $150 a week after that. And when one pharmacy started to get suspicious, he told me where to go. TRUMP'S OPIOID COMMISSION CAN HELP KEEP DEADLY DRUGS OUT OF AMERICA While there is plenty of blame to go around, the 25 lawsuits already filed share similar allegations: - Deceptive ads suggesting opioids were effective treating chronic pain like back injuries; - marketing that downplayed the risk of addiction; - undisclosed use of paid doctors to promote the benefits of opioids - use of front groups to.
