: : Did you know that Opiates are not Narcotics?
Opiates such as Lortab and Vicoden are a Schedule II Narcotic as stated under U.S. FEDERAL Law.
Opium comes from the poppy flower, from which is is refined and grained. Street drugs from this flower include Heroin and sometimes it is blended with cocaine and MDMA to create a "dirty roll".
It goes Heroin (further refined) Morphine (further refined) Hydrocodone,Oxycodone, so on and so forth. It IS a narcotic, as so the law states, so it should be considered so in its dealings.
