Through these methods Heroin is quickly transported to the brain and other parts of the body. Doctors use the drug to control chronic pain of different diseases. In the process of injecting there is use of a needle to take control of the drug directly into the bloodstream. Snorting is the process of inhaling heroin powder via one’s nose, where furthermore it is immersed into the bloodstream via the nasal tissues. Smoking again is highly perilous and the process takes place by inhaling heroin smoke into directly the lungs.
