Narcotics

Narcotics are drugs that increase relaxation and relieve pain and anxiety. Two of the most powerful narcotics, morphine and heroin, are derived from the poppy seed pod. Although morphine is used medically to control severe pain, heroin is illegal in the United States. This status has not prevented its widespread use.
