Sort of like Stickland Propane's tagline. Taste the meat, not the heat.

Uhhhh, except with heroin.

Racer-X thought that was funny?

That boy ain't right.

Does this mean you can't get an infectious blood born pathogen from sharing the "needle?"

Speed-Racer1682d ago

Correct, since it won't be making contact with your skin.

I'm not so sure. Jet injectors have been around for a long time, used in mass inoculation drives in 3rd world countries and they found that diseases can spread by using it. It was conclusive to the point that WHO no longer recommends their use. Apparently even though the width required is small, diseases like hepatitis can get through. It's a fun idea, but this is firstly nothing new and I believe has no new means of dealing with contamination.
