Shwasted (3)

adjective; blending
To be in a state of total inebriation and thereby “laid to waste” or incapacitated. It is associated with the effects of drugs or alcohol. This word is commonly associated with drugs and alcohol.
 
This is a blend of the words “shit” and “wasted” to form “shwasted.” It reflects an interesting pattern in word formation in which things that describe harm or irresponsible fun or things related to drugs and alcohol are blended with profanity. It seems that oftentimes these types of words are blended with profanity to create a startling sort of effect. In fact sometimes these are not even blended as sometimes people will say “shit wasted” instead of “shwasted.” Wasted is probably a reference to the fact that one when intoxicated is completely incapacitated, in a way "laid to waste."
Etymology : Blend from “shit” and “wasted” forming “shwasted.”
