Perhaps, but...
Some years ago I dated an RN who was also trained as a substance-abuse counselor.

The "rush" is when the heroin reaches the brain.

I don't know how the specific injection site enters into the equation, except that a larger vein with more direct route to the brain probably makes some difference, at least initially.

I don't know enough about the vascular system to know how direct that particular vein would be, don't care enough to research it.

There are of course a number of medical professionals here at GT.
We'll probably hear from one or more.
