3. Powdered Heroin – “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete”

For Jennifer Hudson’s portrayal of a heroin addict, the crew decided to hit the Internet to do their due diligence. They scoured the web to talk to drug experts who could tell them what real powdered heroin was supposed to look like. Through their findings, they decided to go with a mixture of milk powder and a vitamin powder called Inositol. In the scenes where the heroin was being cooked, they substituted Inositol with sugar and baking soda instead so that the mixture could thicken up just like the real thing.
