The war on drugs has been going for as long as we can remember; from the trippy whippy LSD 60’s to Coke’d up 80’s then through to the dopey 90’s where Heroin usage spiked and Ecstasy and MDMA powered night clubbers.
Just like technology, drugs are constantly being tweaked and reinvented.
Every year at least 30 new “research chemicals” are introduced to the market, these drugs are then tested by the very willing rush junkies, psychedelic enthusiasts, drug dealers and geeks all hoping to find the next “Viagra” of recreational drugs.
In some cases these “research chemicals” or “designer drugs” are created as experiments to test their effects on the human mind and consciousness. Ironically these same human guinea pigs are horrified when drug companies test their formulations on animals.
But in many cases these drugs are created, NOT tested and are distributed freely because they have not yet been labelled illegal.
By changing the chemical composition of a drug ever so slightly a drug manufacturer is able to slip through legal loopholes and distribute without the fear of being caught.
This same situation persists with athletic performance enhancers and why ‘doping’ is much more prevalent than the public exposure of those who are actually caught would lead us to believe.
The loophole doesn’t last for very long though, most “research drugs” are picked up by law enforcement and are quickly made illegal, once the fatalities start mounting.
But then the process starts again.
The problem with this is that drug users or “drug addicts” feel the dirty end of the needle as they become the guinea pigs.
Experimenting with “experimental” drugs is dangerous - bottom line.
Sadly the drugs we have spoken about are just a few of the hundreds of unclassified research drugs / designer drugs out there.
And it’s important to understand that your favourite local drug dealers and manufacturers are not your friends, they don’t care about you or the consequences of you taking a bad drug.
Be informed about the choices you are making. A choice you make today can and will affect the life you live tomorrow.
