I'm looking for the grammatical way to say one person gave another person an injection of some illegal drug, as opposed to a medical-office situation. Self-injection is described when a person says "I [or he] shot up."

Should I use "I shot him up," which sounds rather violent, or is there a better form?

How about drugged? It isn't exclusive to injection, but "Administer a drug to (someone) in order to induce stupor or insensibility" sounds close to what you are looking for.

    Oh, then you might want doped. It's certainly more slangy.

You could say that you "dosed" him with the drug.
