    When a person insufflates/snorts any kind of powder does any debris from the powder make it inside the lungs? Can snorting drugs cause lung damage? I was curious about this after having to snort massive amounts of powder from crushing up three 30 mg oxycodones (blue beans) because good ole Oxy Contin is on the decline.

    Swim wrote about this once, but the hazards are there. A friends of swims snorted some soma once, collapse one lung, stayed in the hospital for a week. Fucked up his kidneys due to all the drugs they gave him for the major infection he got from the collapse lung.

    depends on the powder particle diameter, if its lower than 10um than it fucks up the lungs. this is a completely useles piece of info but you can easily recognise which um..powder will fark ya up, if you feel an immediate pain in the throat after snorting. lung damage is no joke
