Snorting pain pills?

I have a question. I have a teenage daughter (18) who is hanging around with some "not so good" people lately. I have been told one of them "snorts" pain pills. Now I know that cocaine is snorted and possibly a few other drugs... but my question is why wouldn't someone just swallow the pain pills instead of snorting? I know these people are bad news and since she is 18 there isn't too much for me to do about it. But I am just confused about the snorting pain pills.....

Re: Snorting pain pills?

Some people snort or put it under their tounge, becuase those routes are highly vascularized, thus going directly into the blood. Whereas if you swallow a pill it has to go through digestion and then absorbed from the intestines into the blood. Make sense? Our intenstines are highly vascularized.
