Heroin abuse is something Palmer Police are finding among users as young as high school age, although the percentage of high school age heroin users is estimated to be very, very small

Look for: Heroin is delivered in tiny pieces of small, colorful toy balloons with the drug wrapped tightly inside. Occasionally it may be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or foil. A typical user amount of heroin is only the size of a pencil eraser. Tiny bits of plastic, balloons, burned foil or used syringes may be found discarded by users in trash cans.
Slang: Chiva (cheeva), Black

Paraphernalia: syringes, burned spoons, dirty cotton balls or Q-tips, tie bands (used to tie around an arm before injecting).
