MMDA is psychoactive similar to MDMA which is known as Ecstasy. Real E has no market in Australia any more. It is a lousy party drug because it only lasts about an hour and a half, and what is sold as E is not and has not been real for years. MMDA is a bit different to E as it has slightly less empathetic effect and is a very useful adjunct to psychotherapy in the view of some practitioners. Like E it effects your brain chemistry to allow better brain access to seratonin, or access to the happiness button!
Alexander Shulgin tested all of these psychedelics, and if you look up PiHKL he goes right through all the Phenethylamines and their effects. A truly great read. I will ad that in no way would I promote the use of any drug, prescription or recreational, as The good drug guide says, they all feed back negatively if misused. Here is a link to the definitive drug guide, with all the facts from University trials etc, http://biopsychiatry.com/
Yes I have I think I have tried everything there is. I was really bad at one stage, with the things that happened to me in my life, I turned to drugs big time. Drugs nearly ruined my life, there was one stage I was bombed out so bad I lost reality of everything.It is a warning to others out there, please don't get into them especially the hard ones like speed, heroin and ice, they really screw you up, and they can do permanent damage, like schizophrenia.
They are cooked differently, speed is generally in powder, liquid gooey and ice looks like grains of rice. Coming down off ice is a lot more harder and it makes a lot of people go nuts (aggresive)Both give you huge energy levels and it is impossible to sleep til it wears off.
Spent 4 years of high school smoking pot and other stuff I don't know is even around these days, like THC, acid, etc. Miraculously scored a 4.0 GPA, graduated and never touched drugs again after that. THANK GOD!
As a young man I tried quite a few drugs, being around in the days of all the experimental drug books and Timothy O'Leary. I have tried mescalin, psylocibin, LSD, Hashish, opium, speed, cocaine, GHB, MDA, MMDA. I left the big white horse for those who feel they can cope with it. I hope to get a prescription for ice to take when I die!
I was shocked to see a documentary on legal highs. I remember years ago buying a packet of herbal smoke from the underground market in Manchester UK. wow did this give me a head ache. Now it is totally different. Its all down to the chemical structure of a drug. Nowadays the chemist work hard changing illegal drugs into legal drugs simply by changing the chemical structure of the drug.
It was mind boggling to think these legal drugs exist in the UK, And to the extent of the affects from taking these legal highs.
I've never used any, but I've known a few young people who have pretty much wrecked their prospects of the future they may have had by using drugs. They've ended up with mental illness (as blondepoet bravely pointed out). I've seen young mothers lose custody of their children forever. Then there are the babies born addicted and sometimes with disabilities. Once someone's mind/brain has been permanently damaged they're never the same. End of "mini-lecture", but - really - anyone who has seen what drugs can do to people would have a hard time not commenting here.
I have not, thankfully, tried legal or illegal drugs. I too, have seen the effects on the person as well as on their children (fetal, babies, adolescents, and adults). Witnessing the effects is more than enough of a deterrent for me.
I hurt my neck once and the "doctor" put me on oxycontin. Back when it was new and he told me it was perfectly safe. He did this when I told him I wanted to get off narcotics because I had been taking them for about 3 weeks and there is always a danger of addiction with long term narcotic use.
In the end, I was taking 120mg daily with hydrocodone for break thru pain. (Basically, enough to kill a horse) When he tried to put me on permanent disability, I hired a lawyer to get my doctor changed. My new doc was astounded at the amount of painkillers I was taking and took me off them.
I was not mentally addicted, but I spent the next two weeks with every inch of my body hurting...inside and out. Taught me a whole lot about physical tolerance! After the two weeks, I was miraculously cured. My neck was better and now I still have to be careful, but I work as an RN in OR's without a problem.
He called me a miracle because after I was off narcotics, my function became nearly as good as anyone's. He released me to work up to 60 hours a week, but said I was a glutton for punishment and not to ask for 80.
I lost about a year and a half of my life...because I really don't remember a whole lot about that time and for some time afterwards. I flushed 90 to 100 of the oxycontin down the drain. Someone told me later it was probably about $200,000 worth of street value. (As if I would have sold them after what I went through!)
