Assuming it was in a sealed container its safe to use but will have probably lost a lot of potency due to the heat inside the car and humidity, if it was in a dark cold and dry place it would mantain potency and be safe for decades.

Was this your heroin or pharmaceutical grade? If not how do know it's actually H?

Besides that fact unless it was medical grade and in a sealed container it's going to be covered in bacteria and possibly mold. Also unless it was very very dry it's likely to have degraded into morphine by now if it hasn't completely degraded.

I highly doubt it will be any more covered in bacteria than any other Dope. Unfortunately it will be degraded. Fortunately it is likely to degrade into morphine which obviously is still active.

Cook in hear before shooting. Any other roa don?t even worry.

I think the acidity of tar keeps bacteria from growing.

When I lived in New Jersey, if I reused a cotton that?s a few hours old I was pretty much guaranteeing cotton fever. With tar, I?ve never gotten cotton fever ever.

Pins and needles indicates it had likely in fact degraded to morphine but not h gets converted to morphine in the body anyway.
