don't skin pop meth!

 

 

Intra-muscular injection (IM) is shooting the drugs into muscles as opposed to veins. This is often referred to as muscling.

Skin-popping is when you inject the substance under the skin. Unlike opiates, it is never a good idea to muscle or skin pop crystal meth.

When drugs are skin popped, they slowly make their way from tissues into the blood stream. Opiates are easily absorbed into the body this way. Because of the additives in speed, it can’t be absorbed by the body like opiates can. So, it must be shot directly into the blood stream via a vein.

If you were to skin pop meth, it would sit under your skin for long periods of time eventually forming an abscess or other nasty side effects.
