The largest group of heroin users are those aged between 21-30, combined this group makes up 32% of heroin users in Connecticut. Heroin is relatively cheaper than other illegal substances. This makes it easier for many to obtain, and could account for its popularity. Heroin is an opiate, painkillers with opiate properties, such as vicodin, are seen as a gateway drug to heroin. Users who begin taking painkillers are more likely to graduate to heroin, as it is seen as a similar drug to the painkillers they are used to. The danger with heroin is that users gain tolerance to the drug fairly quickly and become addicted to it far quicker than other drugs.
