What drug creates a light smell of burnt rubber or maybe burnt plastic when smoked?

My room mate has been smoking drugs in the house since day one. When I moved in I knew she smoked pot. I am familiar with it and know what it smells like--I'm from California. It was ok with me that she smoked it in her room as long as it didn't affect me.

The night I moved in I don't know what was in what she smoked but I woke up in the middle of the night to the smell of weed smoke mixed with something else and I was so inebriated ( I slept in my room with the door shut) that I was dizzy and couldn't walk straight going to the bathroom.

Since then I have noticed that about every 2 or 3 days she smokes something in her room that has a light smell of burning rubber. My room is on the other side of the apartment and I put things in place over the openings at the bottom of my bedroom doors (there are two), and I still get contact high from whatever it is.

In the beginning it would make me feel warm all over, and a little bit nauseous, and then I would just have extra energy and up all night. (I usually sleep like a rock). In addition it makes it so that I feel as if I have a burning feeling on the inside of my skull behind my forehead and can not think of more than one thing at a time (I can usually think of at least 3), it makes it hard to think rationally, or to think anything through. It also causes me to have poor coordination--can not drive with that contact high!! Poor distance perception and poor depth perception and causes me to start feeling angry--not just because of what she did--it seems like it is an effect of the drug itself to get me stuck on anger mode.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? I know when she is on it she is up all night and walks around slamming doors and stoming around the house--when sober she walks quietly and usually does not slam doors. I am thinking that she is smoking adderall or meth, but not sure.

I tried to talk to her about it to see if I could at least get her not to smoke it in the house--she has friends she does it with--do it at theirs if she must! But to no avail. She just lies and starts insisting that she doesn't ever get high or drunk.

Whatever it is, you don't want to go to jail for it when she ges busted for it. She will eventually bring thieves into your home, you will have things come up missing etc. Just kick her lying *** out! Do it now before your property starts growing legs and walking off! You already know she is a liar, therefore you can't trust her, and whatever she is smoking, it you are getting a contact high, you most likely will not pass a drug test if tested at work, or by a physician.
