On your colleague's question below about the danger of injecting
The literature [see websites] suggests that acetaminophen is not dangerous
to inject in small quantities of < 1g, however it is generally used for pain
management/anaesthetic purposes so (a) it would be dangerous to inject too
much and (b) it may interfere with the opiate high/euphoria. There may be
other issues around solubility as well.
