"Black tar heroin" is a kind of cheap, uber-dangerous heroin made in Latin America. Though it contains variable amounts of heroin, it is mostly cut with morphine derivatives, which give the stuff its black/brown, tar-like appearance. It's easier to make this kind of heroin, as it doesn't require the fancy equipment or the know-how necessary for pure heroin production. It's crude, unrefined, nasty stuff.

Black Tar is a street name for a type of heroin. It is believed to be a more potent/pure form of heroin. I work at Sunrise Detox Centers. We detox clients off heroin at all three of our locations in both New Jersey and Florida. We find that of those being detoxed off heroin Black Tar is more common in the New York/New Jersey area.

"black tar" is black tar heroin (heroin that is black and not crystal). Crystal stuff has to be very clean (filtered) and black tar heroin is the opposite of clean/filtered.
