Snorting Black Tar

I am 20 years old, and have been using opiates for almost 7 years now...I've experimented with many, many different substances over the years, but being a fan of opiates, heroin has to be the best in my opinion.

First off, I'm not a fan of mainlining dope even though I have more times than I can count. I find the best way to go personally, is to snort the stuff. The question then is, 'How does one prepare tar heroin for snorting?' An old friend of mine showed me an awesome way to go about it that's very simple and very quick. I need a plate, a razorblade (prefrebly one with a handle...), a straw, a glass of water, and my dope.

The first time I saw dope prepared this way, I nearly flipped out, because to someone who had never seen it done, it seemed like they were wasting all their smack. But preparing it this way actually leaves me with more than I would have thought.

Step 1. Take the dope and put in on the plate

2. Dip a finger in the water so my finger is nice and moist. Place a wet finger on the dope and slowly rub it on the plate until brownish/yellow streaks appear.

3. Continue wetting my finger and rubbing until all that remains is a plate covered in wet brown streaks (this is where it looks like you wasted your

4. Take the plate and put it in the microwave... I start at about 15 seconds and check it until its no longer tacky feeling. It should solidify enough so that when I scrape it with the razor, it comes off as powder.

5. Scrape all the dried dope from the plate with the razor blade. I'm left with a nice plate full of very fine, golden, crystals of heroin.

6. Put it in lines and enjoy (Snorting it burns a bit)

Anyways, I find that this is a very effective way at making tar heroin a fine, snortable powder. The main thing is I don't leave it in the microwave too long or it will all burn up. I start at 15 then go 10 until its ready to go. This is my method of choice, because the only other way I know of to snort tar is to roll it into a ball and stick it as far up my nose as I can...but this tends to irritate my sinuses quite a bit.

Overall, I am always amazed at how much powder I am left with after its done. I ALWAYS start small and work my way up to determine its strength.
