can anyone tell me what this is?

Found 23rd Jul 2010
I assume it's drug related from my neighbors messed up social circle, it's about 4 inches long with half a clear plastic tube and the other half thick brown paper rolled round.

something has been burnt in it but it has no obvious smell.

I'll try to link to the photo in the next post if I can work it out.

I have 2 young kids so will be going round to speak to them in the morning but want to be sure what it is first in case I'm wrong.

Thanks.

Sorry not sure what it could be , but was it in your garden or something ? or somewhere were your kids could of got hold ? if so naughty !

is this a quiz or competition?

yeah - sorry should have said - it was in my garden - I don't care what they do in their own house.

erm....it's a quiz if you like - I have no prizes to give away?

edit - I'm not brave - just had enough - we've had a lot of problems - if they keep to themselves thats fair enough but I can't have it effecting my kids.

My guess is it may have been used to smoke cannabis or hashish due to the burning, although that may have a strong odeur. Have a look here , You may find something similar.

Thats bad that it was in your garden , and thankfully you got to it before your kiddies ( if it is drug related ?) sounds to me like it could be though !, but op be vry careful, might not be a good idea approaching these idiots tbh, leave to police as you dont know the consequenses if there off there heads on drugs !

Fixed your image, took me a few goes though, the link was broken sorry

No idea what it is Looks a bit like a baby leek! Obviously isn't though..

looks like it could be used for inhaling the smoke from tin foil when herion is burnt.

Looks like the end of a bong, or maybe a chillum. Can't think what else it would be.

thanks for fixing the image.

it was on the patio outside the back door - if it's 'only' cannabis I don't mind too much - I'll just ask them to keep it on their own property, the last moron to rent the house had a OD on heroin we had a few run ins with him too - oddly enough our house is for sale at the mo!

if anyone wants it pm me - we have lovely neighbors!

I too thought it would leave a strong smell if it was cannabis - even I would recognize that from a misspent youth

thats more like what I was worried about - I'll sleep on it and will see what I can find on the internet in the morning but might get the police to have a look if they care?

I'd say best to be safe than sorry, if it isn't bad at least you wont have to worry, and if it is then the police will deal with it.

Get a matchstick and scrape the inside of the tube. If there is a residue then it's probably heroin, if not then it's likely to be crack or meth (but you can burn and inhale most drugs).

It looks like a burnt/used Hopi ear candle:

Wiki info link

Hopi ear candles are a holistic treatment to ease sinus pressure and clear ear wax - totally harmless.

I totally understand why you might think it to be drug related. But I have never seen anything like that before. Might i suggest it could be a home made firework or explosive devise?
Thermite, Rocket Fuel and Cannabis were the things i used to dabble in.

If there is a white residue in the unburnt half then that is normal for a hopi ear candle, I'm almost certain it is from that picture, I have used them before.

This is the photo wiki has for when it's been burnt and then opened to see the scum inside: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/ca/Typical_ear_candling_contents.jpg/220px-Typical_ear_candling_contents.jpg

Crack pipe ftw

With crack... noone wins

Looks like crack pipe, I would go down to your local police station and hand it in say where you found it. Make sure you emphasise how dodgy next door is.

Well they should believe you.

looks like a glock 9mm but to be sure I'd need to see it from another angle.

Looks like a pipe to me, was there anything inside the brown paper?
Take it to the police station - basically do what lumoruk said!

from the above pics & info it looks mostly like the crack pipe

I've emailed the pic to the police (Safer Neighbourhood Team) - will see what happens.

Thanks for this input guys.

my cat decided to eat 3 slugs & throw up 3 times and my bin has loads of maggots crawling out of it - The back garden is officially out of bounds until I can clean it up this afternoon :-o
