NO THREADS ON HEROIN CUTTING AGENTS/ TECHNIQUES HERE PLEASE
An increasingly large number of threads are being opened in the heroin forum requesting information on the cutting of heroin.
Threads discussing cutting techniques are against DF rules. People should refrain from including details such as these within their posts, or from starting threads on the subject of cutting drugs. Any overt reference to cutting techniques and/ or advice on the use of cutting agents will result in a warning or infraction being issued.
"Cutting" refers to adding a "cutting agent" or "cut" to the substance, in order to increase its weight or decrease its potency.
A cut is an adulterate, which both increases the dealer’s profit margin and renders a substance less safe than it already is, and can in some case have dreadful, even fatal side effects. Cutting is a criminal practice which is always motivated by greed/ profit issues, is absolutely unethical, and is NOT ACCEPTABLE in this forum.
The only threads related to the subject of cuts and adulterants accepted are those dealing with CUT REMOVAL, or product purification. Purification, i.e. the removal of adulterants/ cuts is part of harm reduction, and information and techniques relating to product purification are perfectly acceptable. However, discussions of the various qualities/ types of cuts are not helpful from a harm reduction point of view, since no user can really tell what black market products are cut with, unless they are subjected to a chemical analysis.
And remember that greed/ profit motivated choices such as cutting products, leaving potential users to deal with adulterated, unsafe, black market products of unknown quality or concentration, are often behind some of the worse consequences of substance use in the current circumstances.
WE WILL NOT ACCEPT THREADS RELATED TO THE FACILITATION OF HEROIN CUTTING, CUTTING TECHNIQUES AND CUTTING AGENTS.
