Head Shops/Legal Highs

Post by JokerJamie on Fri Jun 11, 2010 12:27 pm

So I've done some of that legal shit you can get out of Head Shops, I've done it quite a few times. Mephedrone is the most obvious and popular one, and up until it was made illegal in Ireland a few weeks back, myself and my friends were a fiend for the stuff. Right now, I am trying to stay away from the stuff as much as possible. It is incredibly addictive, and it's gotten to the stage whereby as soon as I start to get a little drunk, I have insanely strong urges to find some 'drone' and do it. I am not a smoker, nor have I ever been addicted to any substance in my life, but this has a Pringles sensation and once you start, its not easy to stop. Obviously now, since it's illegal, it is far easier to avoid it, although going into the toilets of any popular nightclub during the week you will come across people who will talk to you non-stop, who's pupils are massive, and who have a hard time sustaining moisture in their mouth.

Considering the positives (ability to talk to anyone about anything for as long as you want, everything is right with the world for a few hours, pretty much nothing can upset you, you can stay out until 6 or 7 in the morning with people and you will never get tired) and then the negatives which will occur during the comedown, when the stuff begins to wear off. Uncontrollable anxiety, inability to sleep, paranoia, severe depression, a lack of motivation/personality, nothing can get the pit of depression out of your stomach and nothing matters anymore. There is no way that the couple of non-euphoric, 'happy and chatty' hours are worth the 8-14 most unpleasant hours you will ever live.

The stuff is lethal, and though there has been no deaths in Ireland linked to drone, it is only a matter of time. Last time I checked, 27 deaths were linked to it in the U.K, as well as one that was directly caused by it in Sweden (the girl smoked weed and did a gram of the stuff and her brain swelled up). Thank god I do not have an addictive type of personality, but anyone who hit the stuff like I did could come out a lot worse on the other end. The problem is, you can't stop doing it, and while you're on it you want more. Suddenly, you're doing 2grams of the stuff in a night, and the more you do, the harder you will come down.

It is an insane situation that Head Shops are allowed to sell this stuff. Yes, mephedrone is now illegal, but new stuff such as 'WHACK', which again is being sold as 'bath salts' and 'plant food', has hit the market and has hospitalized 40 people in the last 10 days here. The comedown is supposed to be even rougher than that from mephedrone, some people reporting they had to visit a doctor to get prescribed Valium the day after. The scumbags behind the counter won't warn you of any of the issues you'll be faced with after the effects start to wear off. It is a scary situation, but I'm confident now that I am finished with all of that stuff. Snorting it off your key in a filthy toilet is not cool, especially when you will be faced with a comedown so severe. The most severe comedown off anything I've tried, and I've tried a bit.

Anyone else experienced that shit? Your thoughts?

Bomby; completely agree. The first time was a big mistake, and I was so skeptical but was constantly reassured.

Seany; I know you're somewhat into your substances. Have you tried any of it?

Nah, it just came about so I'm not going to be the one who has to find out the short and long term side effects plus I only smoke weed now really. I cannot urge people enough to research every substance they take from alcohol to LSD, these are foreign substances you're placing in your body aka that thing that keeps you alive.
erowid.org is a great site that offers unbiased, factual information on all drugs. That is to say it doesn't set out to scare the user away from drugs or encourage them to take but informs them so that they can make a more informed decision.

iv been offered the stuff many times, several other drugs as well, but i had a close friend who lost a family member to drugs, it nearly ruined him and he was out of it for nearly half a year, but im going to college in september to do a diploma in media, i have 2 younger siblings to look after, i cant really afford to start getting into this stuff, alcohol is fine with mates every so often, but for me, thats it.

Well I'm on the piss today for my sister's birthday and going out on a mad one later. I'll prove it to myself by sticking to the drink only.

Apparently none of those deaths were caused by mcat at all, it was all right wing media propaganda.

It's to be expected when a new drug comes out, the media can make some easy bucks scaremongering rather that giving us the straight facts. Jamie makes it sound a bit shit to be fair.

Honestly, it does terrible things to you. I'd actually be more concerned with unstable people killing themselves during the comedown than deaths linked directly to its effects on your brain/body.

I wouldn't mind trying some more decent hallucinogens though. Mushrooms were great great fun, even though it lasted a little too long.

I get my kicks all natural, but I can see myself becoming a drug addict down the line.

Absolutely. Spent about 6 hours walking around Amsterdam completely lost on mushrooms. Good times.
