Yep, sounds surprisingly I know but it's true. I also only found out about it recently. That is, codeine which is an opiate and is also contained in Co-codamol. In the UK, Co-codamol (codeine/paracetamol) is available at it's lowest dose of 8-mg/500mg over the counter. The most shocking part, however, is that when ingested the human body turns codeine into morphine! For this reason, many heroin users often abuse Co-codamol which they can simply buy without question.
