Oh don't smoke it, then you're just inhaling it into your lungs, which is just one MORE organ being damaged. Might as well minimize the negative effects, right?
I have a book by Adam Gottlieb called The Pleasures of Cocaine
which describes a number of ways to enjoy the drug
. I reccomend it to anyone who's interested in being an informed user. However, he does say that absorbing it into the gut is best accomplished when the drug is accompanied by a cordial (Chartreuse, Galliano, etc) because the alcohol
helps the assimilation of the coke
before the stomach acids destroy it. He also, however, outlines a means (and required ratios) of mixing powder cocaine
with water and a small (tiny!) amount of alcohol and putting it into a nasal spray bottle - a way of snorting
it while dramatically reducing any damage to the nasal membrane (each squirt is the equivalent of one line, apparently).
So to answer your question directly - it will neither poison you nor waste it, if done properly it will provide you with a high. But like all drugs
, every means of ingestion creates a slightly varied response, so it may be more or less intense, longer or shorter lasting, etc. No way to know for sure unless you try it.
