A trash collector on May 24, 2008, gathers used syringes taken from Tehran parks. Free needles are offered in Iran to counter HIV risks...Black crack, in contrast to its name, is in fact white heroin and its Iranian version is completely different from the crack known to western countries.  In the west the common type of crack is derived from cocaine, however, Iranian crack is actually compressed heroin and is much purer than brown heroin.
