Just curious, A friend is ditching her druggie husband and he always carries black electrical tape and a druggie once stole a bunch of black tape from me when I was rewiring. Neither of these guys are exactly electricians or would have any other legitimate use for it so curious if it has a usefulness to druggies.

Yes drug addicts indeed use electrical tape for various purposes. It's used to wrap the handles of metal spoons when "cooking" heroin to avoid burning the fingers. It's used to form a rubber mouthpiece to avoid burning the lips when making improvised smoking pipes with items such as spark plug sockets. It's used as a tourniquet when "shooting up". It's used to secure drugs and paraphernalia to arms, legs, and the torso underneath clothing. Because the tape is soft and easy to remove, it's used to wrap drugs and paraphernalia hidden inside body cavities. It's used for constructing "meth labs". Some addicts even claim to get a high from inhaling the fumes of burning electrical tape.

Yeh I hear "druggies" use black electrical tape for moustaches, sometimes they even use it to tape things together, even collecting different colors and making wall collages.
Seriously? Haha your friend is ditching her husband because he does drugs? Why doesn't she help him get off them?
Electrical tape is useful. Why don't you ask him yourself why he carries tape in his pocket? why Jump to conclusions that it's for that purpose? Ha a

Haha, that is ALL the same thoughts I had!

So....she's been his wife for awhile now I assume & she's sat through his (assumed) daily drug use--without partaking herself?? Doubtful, to me--but now she's decided she can't live that life anymore & is leaving him (her right)? Is that right? Chances are he'll just get worse & worse, probably until he accidentally kills himself; the point of my rambling is I agree: she could (& should, IMHO) try to help him get clean before she leaves. Ya never know...it could pull their marriage back together! Most people can't grasp how powerful addiction is...it controls people, most are not addicts because they choose to be. Wow...Topix marriage counseling & addiction support! Lololol.......seriously though, i hope it all works out for the best. For everyone.
