Hi there ~

I understand your concerns for your friend. I believe your friend is in grave danger, as in he might be risking his life. If he continues to snort this stuff it could turn out to be fatal. Please alert his immediate relatives or guardians and have the local police know of this as he needs to get treatment especially in light of his medical condition. He may be passively suicidal and this is something that is very concerning. I hope you understand and try your best to help him though he may not end up liking you in the end.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
