Drug Deception

Drug Deception

Drug trade is illegal: There can be a terrible amount of cheating and deception, which may lead to swindling and murder. There is also the danger of unexpected or toxic effects that may result from some of the following deceptive practices:
a) Dilution: This is done by adding inactive substances to increase the quantity. The result is reduction of weight. The process is also called cut.
b) Adulteration: This involves cutting the drugs with an active ingredient. Rat poison may be added to heroin and barbiturates may be added to cocaine.
c) Substitution: This is plain cheating, by selling one chemical in the name of another costly one, e.g. synthetic heroin as pure heroin.
