    Swim was over at a friends house and suspects she smokin rock.Swim found a broken meth pipe,that been pushed/pulled w/dark residue at the end.Swim tasted white residue/made swims mouth numb.Also,swim found hair curling irons in just about every room of house,about ten of them.Swim used to use meth with her,but somethings alot different here.Swim also noticed she carries a glass pen,strawberry lip gloss,and a small pair of needle nose pliers everywhere in house with her,and there are broken cigarettes everywhere.Does any of this sound familiar?Swim didnt find any chore boy or steel wool either.Swim didnt say anything or confront her,but is swim right to think she's smokin crack?

    Sounds more like meth paraphernalia to SWIM.

    A crack 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.

    Cigarette filters are used to filter out the impurites when smoking crack,meth etc

    That would account for broken cigarettes, especially if they all seem to be missing their filter.

    SWIPleasehelpme, you shown your bro the evidence yet?

    Hey space... talking to him and her tomorrow. found more since last post... found 3 crack pipes, tube with all white residue and found some of my stolen pills with the other stuff. she also had 2 straws with burn marks, obviously smoked.. why use that over a glass crack pipe when she had it available anyway?

    the cigs were not missing filters, but i found about 12 broken or half smoked cigs. most were half smoked, but a bunch for broken. thanks for your help, you were one of the guys offering real help and its appreciated
