Very wrong. Drugs meant to be blood-stream injected won't work
if you ingest them. Drugs meant to be swallowed won't work - and
can really hurt you - if bloodstream or muscle injected. Drugs
meant to be inhaled usually cause harm and won't work if ingested or
injected. There is a BIG difference in how they reach your
blood stream. Next time your friendly nurse starts to inject
something in your arm/leg/butt muscle, just tell her that you'd
like it to take effect quicker and to inject it in your vein.

Then listen to her either laugh, lecture you, or cry.
