No Actually yes but the contact has to be rather intimate. Human and animal skin is a pretty effective barrier and getting a drug passed both is very unlikely and high concentrations will not be effected. HOWEVER is you let your dog lick the inside of your mouth (or do other equally or even grosser things) than the concentration of transfer will go up. An interesting point of trivial - in not so medievil times they would soak a piece of bread with the urine of a supposide witch and if the dog went crazy as well then the witch was really a witch and they would burn her. In actual fact the phenomina is a result of ergot poisoning (a nasty group of drugs and poisons to which LSD belongs). Ergot is a fungal infection of grain. The fungus wants to eat the grain and to deter other creatures from eating it - so it growing the poisons. When ergot tainted grain is used to make bread whole communities can suffer.

Can drugs be transferred to people through contact?

Many pharmaceutical drugs can be absorbed into the blood stream transdermally (through the skin), such as nicotine or hormone drugs. Illegal drugs may or may not be effectively absorbed this way. For one, it depends on the size of the molecule and how lipophilic it is. Small molecules penetrate the outer skin layers better and lipophilicity allows the molecule to diffuse through the fat undernearth.Regarding cocaine, exposure of a dry patch of skin to cocaine powder probably won't result in any noticeable physical effects, but if you put the cocaine in the armpit where it can dissolve, this can allow minor absorption through the skin. And of course it's well known that cocaine is absorbed well through contact with mucous membranes (i.e., through the nose).My understanding is that crystal meth also does not enter the blood stream effectively through the skin. This is why the addicts do something called "skin popping" where they inject it underneath the skin.
