Re: How do they make heroin??

Swim has seen first hand large quantities of this stuff that has never made it out of Afghan. Swim would have a large array of sports cars/mansions if he could have found a way of getting it out

Disclaimer ; The latter is a joke (about smuggling it out)

But swim has seen the 'heroin' factory's' and can tell you they are not the most hygienic of work places..

Swim always wondered why don't drug smugglers use like 100's of homing pigeons and fly all their dope over the border a little a time.

From another thread -

There's a lot of information in the opiate and opioid chemistry forum about the synthesis of various products, but one must attain silver member status before being granted access.

The following run-down should give you a very basic idea of the process (a simplified version of a post by Samuraigecko) -

Opium latex is harvested from poppies, by way of slitting and bleeding them. Another process known as water threshing is sometimes used to harvest opium, although this is more commonly used in pharmaceutical production of opioids.

The raw opium is then cooked and pressed into bricks of Cooked Flake Opium. This now needs to be processed into morphine base.

Morphine base is then acetylated at positions 3 and 6 of the molecule. This produces heroin acetate which is then sold on or further processed.

Heroin acetate is then converted into a hydrochloride salt, thereby producing the real end product, diacetylmorphine hydrochloride (Heroin HCL). This is then cut with just about anything to reduce purity and increase profits (greed motivates all) before it hits the streets.

For a more detailed understand of the subject, have a read through these links -

The Improved Guide for the Manufacture of Cooked Flake Opium (CFO)

Making Morphine the Simple way, With Extras

Opium - Poppy Cultivation, Morphine and Heroin Manufacture

Documentation of a heroin manufacturing process in Afghanistan

Could you make heroin from the morphine you get from the doctor?

Why don't people grow opium in the U.S. and make H here?
Hope this has helped to answer your question.

Re: How do they make heroin??

Aye the link tarbaby posted is very interesting, and should answer swiy's question fully.

However, swim is always surprised when he reads that link, that the end product is H4, like you'd find on the East Coast of the US.
Whereas H4 is near impossible to obtain, even in countries bordering Afghanistan, as since ~the early 1980's when Afghanistan began to become a major heroin producing/exporting region, the final product, ready for both internal consumption and export to the rest of Europe, was H3, the base, smokeable form, requiring addition of an acid in order to dissolve, (unlike H4).

According to a UN report swim read quite a while back, the capability to produce H4 in Afghanistan and surrounding regions has existed for at least several years.

Yet still they skip a step and do it the 'old way'. Swim would have assumed that since they clearly have the knowledge and (I guess you could call it technology), to make relatively pure H4, they would have capitalised on that market.

However, swim supposes they still make billions as long as what is exported vaguely resembles heroin, -so perhaps, why make the effort, change the custom?
