The Opiate Comparison Chart

What is the Opiate Comparison Chart?

The opiate comparison chart is a tool that you can use to determine the strength of certain opiates that drug addicts commonly abuse. Let’s say that you just arrested a suspect that had oxycodone in his possession. Just look up oxycodone in the left column and the right column will tell you how many doses of oral morphine it is equal to. This is good information to know prior to going to court in a DUID case, for general knowledge or for community awareness projects.
