Limited: Depends upon the concentration of thc in the primary smokers supply, how close you are to that user, how much is exhaled and how much you inhale. This is a rather inefficient way to get high.

Could i get a high from second-hand (passive smoke) from heroine?

Depends: It is not likely that you will be able to obtain the euphoric high related to smoking heroin. That being said, if the person does not inhale deeply, or there is a significant amount of smoke or you are exposed to it for a lit time in an enclosed area, you could achieve blood levels that will test positive and you may feel the effects.

Wear a mask: If this is a workplace issue, talk to your employer regarding your concern as this issue affects many other workers. If at a friend's home, just politely tell your friend that "you are allergic to smoke" . Fortunately, more and more states are prohibiting indoor smoking.

2nd hand smoke: Do what you can to demand (not the best word) that you are entitled to a smoke-free environment. I know this can be extremely difficult. You should not be medicating yourself due to another person's addiction. If it's an impossible situation , if you're living with someone get air filters have long-term conversations asking them to leave the premises to smoke.

Work environment: Speak to your management if smoking is occuring indoors. If your exposure is outdoors, try to move away from smokers as much as you can, ultimately find another job if no help is provided.
