    I've heard you can actually dip cigs/joints in cough syrup and get a DXM trip. Is this true?[​IMG]

    That would make the DXM toxic or something, wouldn't it?

    I have heard some people say that burning DXM causes it to be toxic. Not sure if this is true though. You would not trip though.

    i believe that when u burn dxm, its not toxic. I heard of SWIM smoking dxm many times, but doesn't really work.

    that is after SWIM extracted it thoughEdited by: blah102

    The Material Safety Data Sheet for DXM states that combustion (or decomposition) will result in the production of:



    Carbon Monoxide/Dioxide

    Hydrogen Bromide Gas

    Nitrogen Oxides



    And dipping a joint/cig in cough syrup won't work, it's too diluted.

    the powder also carbonizes when it burns, basically leaving you with a semi-solid black rock.

    Myths: "DXM dipping"

    i made a topic called 'dxm dipping". my counselor gave me a book called street drugs identification guide. i was reading it and he gave it to me as a present. it has very detailed pics of real drugs/everything. the reason i asked about dxm dipping is because in the back it says(in the dxm section) ".....some users soak marijuana or ciggarettes in tussin to acheive a high..." these guys must be really stupid. did they just dream that up or what? lol

    I'm pretty sure you will not achieve any sort of "high" from dipping
    cigarettes into tussin. It is probably pretty harmful considering the
    fumes from lit DXM are extremely toxic.

    If the author was indeed referring to DXM, that is completely not true. You gotta understand, the people who write such misinformation don't know any better, they just go by what they have read or heard about. Chances are, these authors probably aren't going to try the stuff that they write about. This is the reason there are so many myths regaurding drugs of all kinds.

    False. No high will be achieved from dipping a cigarette in Robitussin.

    I'll bet the "author" took the old legend of soaking cigarettes - tobacco - in Paragoric and drying and smoking them, and applied it to cough syrup. Paragoric will work as it is a weak tincture of opium. As regards soaking a joint in Robitussin, I'd say the author of this has a weak juncture of synapses and just carried over the story to shock people and sell his written swill. I'd put his book on the extreme right in my bookcase.

    Even if you could get it to dry out and all that bull shit, you would have a dose of ummm ~10mg, so maybe if you smoked a whole dipped pack in quick succession you might have a chance... just about as good of one as pigs flying out of my ass.

    I say some article saying "robo-fire" was sweeping the state, that
    users were lighting robitussin on fire then breathing the fumes to get
    high.[​IMG].



    The reporter went into detail of this process NO-ONE HAS DONE IN REAL LIFE!

    Can you find this article? It sounds like a good piece for the archives. I would like to chase down the reporter's payroll. That might explain a bucket-full.


    No doubt you are familiar with the TV ads for "Partnership For A Drug Free America" yes? Did you know that it is bankrolled by the Anheuser-Busch beer company? "This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs! <egg is cracked and dropped into a hot skillet...sizzle>" Yup. Smoking cough syrup when they should be learning to drive drunk on a 6-pack of Bud. Try to find a link for this one, okay? I love having fun with these pinheads! (*< quack!

    You know what they say, a joint is called a roach bc it looks like a
    cockroach. WTF! Another drug myth. SEE____Fear and
    Loathing in Las Vegas and/or read the book.
