I looked in my stepsons drawer and saw some drug paraphernalia. He claims to only use pot but there was this piece of foil there too. I was particularly surprised by a roughly 2" square piece of foil (alum or tin) that was contorted into a bowl. It had a slight tiny brown stain on the inside. The bottom did not have any burnt indications. I made the mistake of sniffing it and my sinuses reacted by draining. I had to spit out mucus later and eventually got bronchitis. No smell was noticed and I didn't notice any other symptoms. Besides the 2"x2" foil, there was a lighter small plastic bag with what looked like pot leaves and a small calculator sized scale for measuring in grams. My wife dismissed it as only pot but the foil suggests something worse. My Dr thought cocaine or meth. A month before he had a fake cigarette stashed that we found, but he claimed that was used for smoking pot. Can you help me convince my wife that we may be dealing with more than a young man using pot?
Can you please tell me what a small piece of foil might be used for with drugs?

Honestly i think you have nothing to worry about, if you didn't find a bong or pipe or any access blunt/joint rolling paper, he is most likely making a pipe out of a water bottle and using the tin foil for a bowl.
He is just using it to smoke a bowl of WEED ! Obviously scale to weigh out weed. Bag with leaves that looks like WEED . I'm assuming he's under 18 since he has no privacy there for can't buy papers , blunts or bowl . So just relax and stop assuming . Just ask him hey what this for . --_--
I hate to say this but my first guess was heroin. The foil, lighter and the mentioned "fake cigarette" which I thought he could be using the inhale the fumes with (assuming it's hollow). I've never used the stuff so I'm not in any way positive but I've heard of it being used that way.
I strongly agree with nenag on this one. This isn't just pot. Could even be meth. You didn't say how old he is, but this needs to be nipped in the bud right away if it isn't already a problem for him...
I am sorry to say but i think that it is something more than pot. Ive never been a drug user but have had alot of friends that do and that sounds like heroin to me. Being a mother myself i strongly suggest that you intervine now before it is to late. - Nena
