swim smoked 2 bowls of cannabis and then parachuted some vicodin before class today and i was pretty rolled. swim was thinking about if you could crush up some pills,[vicodin, xanax, oxycodone]crush them up, and throw it in some weed and would you feel them
Not a great idea. Other ingredients in pills may be harmful (im not certain though, depends). Even the drugs can become harmful....because some chemicals change when heat is applied. They may not even vaporize. It could also taste shitty. But i dont know if it would work.
Most drugs like hydrocodone are supplied as their salts to make them water-soluble. Heat applied to a hydrochloride would cause the drug to, at least partially, be destroyed. Each drug is different in this respect. A knowledge of pharmacology and chemistry would be required to come to a conclusion regarding the initial question.
What if you have these drugs in their pure form.? Either by some extraction or diversion? For instance, pure benzo or opiate powders. Could they be converted to the freebase form and smoked, or smoked in the hcl form? SWIM knows that not all drugs that are smoke able need to be in the freebase form. He assumes it depends on the drug.
Raven: Yes, that's true, they don't all need to be in their freebase form to be smoked, methamphetamine for example. However, freebase chemicals (almost?) always have a much bigger difference between the temperature at which they vaporise and the temperature at which they combust or degrade compared to salts, making them more suitable to smoke as less product is lost. Methamphetamine is generally sold as a salt because the freebase form is a rather caustic oil which is really impractical to handle.
Yes, it is possible to extract opiates from pills, freebase them, and then smoke them. Swin has done this a few times to good results with morphine and OC. I'm not sure how well this would work with benzos, however. A little searching tells me that the boiling point for Diazepam is around 500°C, which seems very high compared to meth (~215°C) or THC (~240°C from memory, might not be exact) so you would likely just destroy it before any is vaporised.
