Did my carpet cleaner just tell me he was on drugs?

Just had a carpet cleaner in to clean our carpets. As I was paying, he was having trouble getting his phone to read my card, due to my card being worn. But while he was doing it, he made a comment to the effect of "I only got about 6 amps in me today so I've kind of got the shakes." Any idea what that statement meant?

Uh, I am pretty sure it doesn't mean consuming pebbles in any literal sense.

So . . . drug slang. "Eating rocks." Does that mean doing crack? [more inside]

everywhere else it's coke

In Chicago the standard term for bags of heroin sold on the street is "blows." I've also heard the word used as a verb, e.g. "You blow?" Does anyone have any clue as to the origin of the term?

Spanish Raver SlangFliter:

Does anyone know a colloquial Spanish (/dialect irrelevant) term equivalent to 'Tripping," as in "being under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug?"
