Heroin Drug Crimes

Dallas Drug Lawyer

If you are arrested and charged with a drug crime related to heroin, then you could face serious penalties. Heroin is an opiate analgesic referred to as diamorphine in the medical world. In its illegal form, it is most often a freebase drug which allows it to be smoked as well as injected. There is also a third type of illicit heroin that is most often produced by Mexican cartels and is commonly referred to as black tar. In the state of Texas, you could face very serious penalties for a criminal conviction involving this drug.
