A common question for many parents, is 'what kind of substance is smoked off of foil that can leave a burnt residue.' There's a lot of different types of substances that could be smoked off of foil, but most commonly you'll find that it’s black tar heroin or methamphetamine (crystal meth).
Black Tar Heroin is Smoked on Aluminum Foil
Check if the flame is adequate and adjust the foil as needed. Following this, use a toothpick to release the gas from the lighter and put a blue tack below the lighter and place it on the foil surface. Light up and put meth on one end of the aluminum foil and heat it, this would turn the meth into liquid. Steadily run down this liquid to the.

By far the strongest warning sign that the tin foil was being used for Black Tar Heroin is the dark black/brown streaks the Heroin leaves on the top half of the foil.
Another warning sign can be the presence of black fingerprints all over furniture, walls and even on your loved one's face.
Smoking Crystal Meth on Foil
Unfortunately, as beautiful as the South Bay of Los Angeles is, some families are finding their loved ones using crystal meth. Methamphetamine looks much different than black tar heroin when smoked on tin foil however.
The main difference is that you will see a white crystalline structure on the tin foil, not much of any trail on the top of the tinfoil, but large amounts of black soot on the bottom of the foil.
How Do I Tell the Difference Between the Different Drugs Smoked on Tin Foil?
Often, parents inquire about identifying what substance was being used on a piece of tinfoil because they'd simply found a piece of tinfoil in their child or spouses room. It's important to keep in mind that a wide-range of substances can be used from tin foil and all will leave a burnt residue on the foil.
While there are less extreme substances that could have been smoked, for example hashish, when confronted, the common excuse for what was being smoked is generally marijuana or hashish. That’s why it's so important to not only focus on the hard evidence but also taking account of the individual's behaviors and actions over the past week. Someone who has been abusing marijuana will act much differently than someone who has been abusing Heroin or Methamphetamine.
Behavorial Changes Associated with Heroin Abuse
With Heroin you will want to look for the short-term effects, things like: nausea, vomiting, excessive scratching and itching, falling asleep during odd hours, constricted pupils, and other behavioral changes like mood-swings and agitation.

Once a methamphetamine user has been awake for a substantial period of time, the comedown of methamphetamine causes a complete crash of the bodies functioning systems. This sleep deprivation causes the user to fall asleep for extended periods of time ranging from 18 to 30 hours.
These are some simple signs to be aware of if you find tin foil lying around the house. Finding a piece of foil with signs of combustion or any type of residue should be a big red flag. Someone who has resorted to smoking or freebasing off of aluminum is further along in their addiction than someone who has just started experimenting with drugs. If your loved one is abusing drugs with tinfoil, your best bet is to contact an addiction specialist immediately before it spirals out of control.
An addiction specialist will be able to gain more information regarding the exact situation that you're in and help catch the problem before it becomes a life and death situation.

First of all, apologies for lack of precise timescales and dosages. I did not originally approach this undertaking with the intention of writing a report. However, after seeing how few trip reports on crack there were on Erowid I felt compelled to sumit my own.
The other night, I tried crack cocaine for the first time. I 'cooked up' the crack myself, using baking soda and cocaine HCl (obtained through not entirely honest means). The equipment was rudimentary - a spoon, a glass of water, some aluminium foil. I was unsure of the total weight of my HCl coke, but it looked about half a gram, give or take a bit. I took half of this and placed it on the spoon, mixing it with about half as much baking soda, then added just enough water to cover the pile. Seeing good cocaine mixed into that murky little concoction made me glad I had saved the other half - if things didn't go to plan at least I hadn't pissed all of it away.
I held the spoon over a candle until the mixture started bubbling. I was unsure when it was ready (it just looked like a blob of spit), so kept it there until most of it was gone, and there was only a little yellow puddle left. I let this cool and harden, and scraped it off the spoon. Reminded me somewhat of DMT crystals...
Being the perpetually unprepared type, I did not have a glass pipe in my possession, so I had to make do with a straw and aluminum foil. This proved to be frustrating. The first time I tried inhaling I heated the foil over a candle, and most of the smoke escaped. What I did manage to catch did nothing but convince me that crack smoke is THE most foul tasting thing ever. I was close to retching, such was the awful taste.
Later on, I tried a different method. I put a small pile of crack on some foil which I placed over the mouthpiece of an upside-down cup. This way I could trap the smoke in the cup, turn it the right way up, pierce a hole in the foil and smoke it with a straw from the cup (look out for these at your local Starbucks). It worked as well...I exhaled big plumes of smoke, and within seconds was feeling the effects. First of all I got a bit heady, like if I'd stood up too fast. Then my digits had a warm 'buzz' to them. My lips were numb. I felt very stoned, but at the same time energised, and had a wonderful feeling of contentment. I also noticed my mood was lifted considerably (I had a massive grin on my face). Not so great was the heavy breathing and racing heartbeat, but it was no worse than if I'd just done some light jogging. The high was not as intense as it is generally made out to be, but it was very pleasant nevertheless.
I spent the rest of the evening wasting most of the crack through ineffective smoking techniques involving aluminium foil. The next day I finished off the rest of the coke, and that's when I discovered the drug's dark side. After having smoked all that I had, I started picking tiny bits of crack out of the carpet, smoking already burned bits of crack on the foil, etc. It was never enough to get me high, and I dread to think what it did to my throat (I finally admitted defeat after holding in a hit of what was probably burnt lint and feeling like I'd ripped the lining of my throat - not a pleasant experience). I do not purport to be addicted after only half a gram of pre-basified coke, but I know that if I had some crack here now, it would be gone in minutes.
