If you are being chased by the cops, the best solution is to ditch your drugs and paraphenalia in the woods. But if you insist on ingesting your cocaine to hide it from them, it is far better to swallow the condoms than to open them and chew the cocaine. Inside of a condom, there is a chance it will come out the other end, and believe it or not, doctors can help make that happen quicker. WHen you chew it, there is no backing out…the cocaine is in your system. Eat enough of it, and you will probably die. But on the brighter side, it gives us folks in the ER enough excitement for a few hours and a chance to practice our heavy sedation pharmacy skills. So I thank you for that.
