Caption: Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image of heroin (diamorphine). Heroin is a powerful narcotic and painkiller that is derived from morphine. Its use in medicine is restricted because it is highly addictive after only a short period of use. Heroin is abused as a recreational drug. The body develops tolerance to the drug quickly and larger doses are needed to achieve the same effect. The calibration bar is 10 um and the magnification is 802 x.
