Not HIV the virus wouldn't be able to survive long enough on the straw, but it may have been a risk for Hep C. Ask your doctor instead of calling the CDC.

hi

regards from india

I havent heard of HIV infection happening through sharing cocaine straws. However Hepatitis C could be transmitted.

You may want to ask your health care provider for further course of action.

Goodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
