Parachuting is a method of swallowing drugs by rolling or folding powdered or crushed drugs in a piece of toilet paper (or other similar paper) to ingest while avoiding the taste of the chemical.[1] It is sometimes called a "snow bomb", especially if using cocaine.[citation needed] This method is used among many pharmaceuticals that are commonly crushed for recreational use. The toilet paper method must use single ply toilet paper or one must separate the layers of double ply. Tissues are also a common go to for this method of drug ingestion. Another common paper used is rolling paper for smoking herbal substances. Opioids and other narcotics, amphetamines, and benzodiazepines are also commonly parachuted to avoid unpleasant tastes. This method's purpose is recreational because it is all absorbed at once when the paper unravels in one's stomach.
