if your using a standard butane lighter, then yes, it's safe.

I'm not certain of the chemistry of it, so someone currect me if I'm wrong, but Sh4adow was right, Al can be bad for you, but a normal lighter isn't hot enough to vape the Al so you're straight. Just don't blowtorch it or anything...but you'd have worse problems if you did that like a charred face ;)

I would have to guess that it's probably a little bad for you.

Im pretty sure using a regular BIC lighter is still bad, ur supposed to burn the chemical off, black smoke comes of it so its still burning the chemical compounds but theres no way around it. Tin foil is baddd to smoke out of!.

It's probably bad for you. I read that with heroin smoking out of aluminum foil can cause a nerotoxin that can kill you at any time. I don't know if it's true or not. Even smoking weed out of it, you are going to get some of the chemicals from the foil into your lungs. It might not kill you but it will damage your lungs more than out of a glass pipe.

its NOT bad for you unless the metal gets hot enough to melt, where you would breathe in the chemicals from the metal. a standard lighter is NOT powerful enough to do that.

They WOULDN'T expect you to cook with it (heat it) and wrap your food in it if it was going to be harmful to your body.

A socket wrench does work though if you're really that paranoid.. Even-though they're prolly made outta the same material half the time.

Sockets are made from Stainless Steel a lot of the time.

It's better to just go to a headshop and get whatever size filter you need for your homemade pipe.

well one time i smoke this tiny bowl out of a mountain dew can put i didnt scrape any of the paint off or anything
so i got this weird kinda high where i felt high physically but not mentally at all
and then for a whole week whenever i wasnt high i felt quite odd, kinda like if you take a bunch of adderall
so i dunno if that happened cause of the tin in the can or the paint
does anyone know?
