Empty pens

Can anyone explain to me what empty pen tubes are used for? I was doing a final cleanup in my AH's drawers today (he's coming to see the kids this weekend and I want him take the rest of his stuffs) and and found two empty pens. What would that be used for?

Thanks!

Back in the day, I used empty pens to snort coke.

Maybe?

That's probably one of the things he uses. But I don't think it's the only one. He doesn't display much syntoms of coke use, but rather some kind of opium thing (heroin, morphine, etc.). He probably does more than one thing. One to balance out the other. Who knows!

Thanks!

Also used for smoking especially speed or heroin/opium.

A folded piece or strip of foil held with one hand and lit with the other.
The pen tube is then held by the lips and used to extend to the foil and the smoke coming from it.

Can be for snorting too, however the rush is not as big as with smoking it.
Most that snort also eventually smoke, but the pen tube can lose alot to sticking.

Regular drinking straws are preferred for snorting, because they can be split to get what sticks inside.

The preferred straw of choice for snorting?

MacDonalds!
Larger diameter and non-sticky!

And it just seems you can never find the last pen tube when you need it again.
Thats why so many collect.
Plus you lose the other pen parts when your high.

Hope this helps.

Be Well

And I have known people who hide it well enough that it took someone looking a few months to find clues. Always high, it takes till they are not high before you see the difference.
