Common Slang Terms
Heroin is typically packaged in plastic baggies, then wrapped in tin foil, then tied into balloons. Small pieces of balloon and tin foil are a sure sign of heroin use.
Needles and spoons are other obvious signs of heroin use. Spoons are used to melt down the drug, and are typically held over a candle or lighter, and often bent to allow for easier holding.
Tin foil is used to burn heroin and then suck the smoke through a straw or pen.
