Good thing it wasn't weed or he'd be dead, of course.

They just took him in for needle-stick prophylaxis... right?

If I had seen a needle cap in the door handle, that would have suggested to me the possibility of an exposed sharp in the area, and I would have used EXTREME caution in my search for it.

How many marijuanas were in that syringe?

Wait. Article says he stuck himself with a loaded syringe,  not that he depressed the plunger... where is the "injecting" other than microscopic residue?

The other officers continued searching the vehicle and found more syringes, both empty and loaded with heroin, as well as jeweler's bags containing powdered fentanyl, Xanax pills, 10 unmarked tan capsules with an unknown white powder in them, spoons and an electronic scale.

Dumb question: I always thought you had to melt the H as with a spoon and a lighter. Why wouldn't the H in the syringes dry up when they cool down?

/had relatives with H addiction living with me.
//lost a lot of spoons and a laptop and a tablet and some other stuff

Ah, thank you. Came here to find out how one both accidentally jams a needle in one's body AND accidentally pushes the pushy-inny-bit. I mean it's possible... But less probable after one experiences a surprise sharp pain with a syringe sticking out of one end.

I can't watch the French Connection II for this very reason. I hadn't seen it in a few decades, but the way the story goes, the detective, (Gene Hackman) is caught by the heroin thugs, kidnapped and then they inject heroin into him, turning him into a junkie.  He goes through a withdrawal period and recovers (thanks Hollywood) and its why I can't watch that movie anymore.

I see what you are saying.  However, I don't think he was worried about being high, just worried about all the crap you can catch from a dirty needle!

Well of course he needed to get checked out....  I just challenge the statement that he injected himself.
 
2017-12-07 01:37:14 PM  
I feel for the officer, that's a very unpleasant risk they all have to deal with

We ask the cops and the legal system in the U.S. to deal with a lot of crap they're not prepared to deal with and demonstrably not good at dealing with, such as drug addiction, homelessness, mental illness, etcetera

I guess the shorthand is I wish we actually had a nanny state. I mean, if it's 3 o'clock in the morning and you're in a church parking lot shooting up heroin, maybe you need a farking nanny because your are obviously failing at life. A felony drug conviction won't turn the woman's life around. An attempted murder charge because the cop accidentally stabbed himself won't help. But maybe a nanny would actually help

Think about it, the needle would have to bury itself completely or hit something hard before the plunger would start going down... No way he wouldn't pull his hand out as soon as he was poked.

My roommate's brother works with the NYPD over in the Bronx, and this is one of the many reasons him and several officers he works with won't pat down heroin addicts on the street. The chance of something like this accidentally happening, the countless STDs and infections you can end up contracting, and there's just so many addicts around that area it's practically pointless to try busting them all, especially when there's far worse crimes going on.
 
2017-12-07 02:12:36 PM

kling_klang_bed: it's practically pointless to try busting them all


It's a loosing battle in the war on drugs. No good busting the daily user and filling up the jails with them especially if there's no rehabilitation in place. 1/2 these users don't want to give up the high because withdrawal is nasty business.

My step daughter is an EMT and has been to more Narcam calls then car accidents, fires or other rescues. Day in day out, all she does is administer Narcam. It's gotten to the point that before they start the Narcam, the victim is tied down to the gurney because once they wake up from the overdose, they are no longer high and will punch, fight and kick whomever is in the way and ruined their high. These users are constantly OD'ing, being rescued and go back to OD'ing.

It will behave much like eating a time release a pain pill.  Slowly absorb into your body.  Absorption rate depends on blood flow in the region.  Highly unlikely even one ml could inadvertently get pushed into the fat tissue of a finger.

Wrong. No vein, greatly reduced effect.  Heroin can be absorbed through the skin. Injecting it non-intravenously, but into the body can have an effect, but certainly not to the extent of intravenous injection.

Pretty much this. If in a fleshier area, it conceivably could/would absorb as any other subcutaneous or intramuscular injection, i.e., insulin (sub-q) or Demerol (IM).
