A Date With Clonazepam

So, as an experimental drug user, and curious to see the effects of different benzodiazepines, I picked up some Clonazepam. I am not big on benzos, and have only tried Xanax and Valium in the past, but I figured I would give K-pin a try. I got it through my friend, who sold me a small, white 2mg tablet and I decided to take it the next day at school.

I dropped it at about 9am, during second period. I sat next to my friend and awaited the effects to begin. I'd say about 30 minutes after dosage I started to feel the effects. Since we did nothing in that class that day I have freedom to move about as I pleased. I noticed the first effects to feel a loss of coordination, feeling a bit loose and a thought of 'oh yes, I feel drugs in me.' I described it to my friend as an almost kind of drunkish feeling. I stumbled around the room and noticed (looking back on it) that my brain didn’t like to record everything I did, and by that I mean the experience seems a little blurry, I would do things, and I would remember that I did them, but the memory is somewhat faded.

So the day continued on and the 'blurring' effect continued. I remember feeling good, all day, and being able to function normally, (or what I thought was normally) the whole day.

I recall that during 5th period, (about 3 and ˝ hours after dosing) I had some bad effects, hard to describe exactly what I felt, but a kind of headache and “ugh, why did I take that drug, it was such a waste” feeling go through my head. The bad didn’t last long and I quickly was perked back up again.

During sixth period, I was sure I was coming down, now the guy I had got the K-pin from said that smoking weed increased the effects of the Clonazepam, or at least, the combination of the both of them was pleasant. So I bought a $5 sack of some chronic and smoked a pinch hitter after school was out (roughly 6 hours after dosing). I did notice a reuptake in the K-pin, or maybe just what my mind thought was a reuptake. another thing I remember about the combination of cannabis and Clonazepam was that usually when I smoke weed and I’m in a public place I freeze up, and am not so good with my communication skills, but I think that the weed balanced that out and I was able to talk to my friends normally without them knowing I was fucked up.

Later that night I continued to smoke weed, and the K-pin stayed there with me. The night was better remembered than the day at school, simply because the effects had diminished substantially, but were still clearly detected.

The next day I still had a bit of a jumbled memory but wasn’t a problem and quickly cleared up. I enjoyed myself for the most part, the bad effects weren’t that unbearable and I think it was a good experience.
