Is there a non-flossing (maybe drug-related) use for those little plastic floss holders

I'm a student at the University of Washington. I live about a mile and a half north of it, and walk to campus everyday. There's a stretch between that has a lot of sketchy, druggy behavior--buying and selling, sometimes use on the street. In the morning especially, I see a lot of drug paraphenalia on the street--syringes, empty baggies, baggies full of white substance. I've lately been noticing a lot of those disposable plastic floss holders on the street as well. Not a ton, but maybe ten to twenty on the sidewalk, just abandoned.
I think this is weird. I have a hard time believing people are flossing (using relatively expensive little gadgets) on the street, and they're only really located in this one sketchy block. Is there another purpose for these things?
