    My friends have told me on numerous occasions that they used to dip cigarettes into a bottle of codeine/prometh cough syrup, let them dry, and then smoke them. They insist that it works and that you get a nice opiate buzz from it.

    I may have access to some syrup with concentrations of codeine at 15mg/5ml and promethazine at 7mg/5ml, but it would take a little work for me to get a hold of it. I would only really be interested in it if the cigarette thing actually works. Does anyone have any experience with this, or can tell my why it would or wouldn't work?

    The amount of promethazine/codeine that you will get from smoking will be microscopic. Add to that the fact that the codeine is likely to have terrible bioavailability, and you're getting, at best, a very small effect from the promethazine while wasting the codeine. The only redeeming feature is that the effects will be immediate, but thats hardly worth wasting the syrup.

    Oral is the only real way to go. And then only if your opiate tolerance is low.

    Even if you can get high off 15 mg of codiene, you'd have to let the cigarette absorbe 5mL of the stuff to get all 15mg in it.

    This is an idiotic idea. You can't get enough codeine into a cig to get you high by dipping it in codeine syrup, and the smoke will be nasty as hell, and much of the codeine will likely be lost (by burning or being lost into the air). Anyone who thought it worked, it would only be placebo effect.

    If you're hanging out with people who do things like that, you really need to hone your bullshit detector.

    Yeah, do not do this. It will not be effectve, at all. If you want, use the syrup orally for recreation.
