Just as in interesting sidenote - heroine(diamorphine) is actually used legally as pain relief in some countries, even UK uses it for palliative care.

I am aware of that. Apparently most of the damaging effects come from the crap it is cut with when buying street heroin. (Again just stuff I have read, no first hand experience).
