Slam is a genetically modified hybrid drug created by Baron Reiter, consisting of half heroin poppies and half coca leaves, intended to give the user a high.[1]

Slam crops cultivated under Reiter's supervision.

In 2010, Baron Reiter led an operation with people slavishly harvesting the drug under military supervision. Oliver Queen was recruited in to the fold as a guard on the people.[2] Taiana Venediktov stole some of the drugs to distribute amongst other workers that were in pain, in turn being sentenced to death, a task Oliver promised to follow through with, despite not doing so.[3] Reiter also traded Slam with Army Lieutenant Joyner in exchange for opium confiscated during the Army's stationing in Afghanistan.[4]

Slam eventually found its way in to mainstream use, being confiscated by the Star City Police Department and housing it in a contraband facility.[5]
