Making Oxycontin More Like Heroin

07.13.09 Bucky Turco

Oxycontin abusers are constantly discovering new and resourceful ways to strip off the time release coating on their prescription pill stash. By removing it and snorting the drug, users experience a much faster and stronger high making it feel more like heroin than pain relievers. One tried and true method for breaking it down into a highly sniffable form is to straighten out a hose clamp and use it like a cheese grater. See video of the pill grinding in action that supposedly makes it more “social” as well according to one Oxy chomping individual.
