pipe is usually just a hollow straight glass tube with some brillo/steel wool on 1 side. From swiys description of the pipe, it definately fits a crack pipe. On swims pipe, the residue is dark brown/black, and you can see lines where the residue has been removed by pushing the brillo pad through the pipe and to the other end (and pulling some of the residue with it). Also, both ends of swims pipe are pretty much black and much darker than the middle of the pipe, although the middle is still covered with dark brown/black residue. Whereas a meth
pipe is usually a hollow glass tube with a bulb at the end and a small hole at the top of the bulb. You could make a meth pipe into a crack pipe by breaking the bulb off the end. A glass pen with the actual pen removed would also make an ideal crack pipe.
As far as the curling irons, broken cigarettes, lip gloss, and needle nose pliers, that doesnt really sound like anything to be alarmed about in swims opinion. Perhaps swiys friend was using the curling irons as a heat source for smoking crack, but that seems kind of far fetched and swim
would think she would be much more likely to use a regular lighter.
In swims opinion, swiy is right to suspect swiys friend could be smoking crack.
