First Real Run-in With Methamphetamine
Six or seven years ago I was quite the psychedelic ranger and had extensive experience with various stimulants (amphetamine racemic & dextro, methylphenidate, pemoline, etc.) but never did lay hands on that dirtiest and scariest of drugs, Methamphetamine.
Fast forward to early 2007. My good friend, with whom I had most of my early drug experiences, works for a hospital lab with access to government crank, and procured a little bit (no easy task) for our enjoyment. It'd been years since we did anything together, and the opportunity was quite exciting.
Well, we snorted it, a little bump every few hours, and I was impressed. Compared to Ritalin (& its friends) the meth was a very clean stim, no discernible beta-activity until well into the comedown, more comparable to a long-lasting dextroamphetamine than anything. I won't go into glorious detail about the 'shiny white' feeling methamphetamine inspires -- this is a very simple drug. The greatest surprise was how *LONG* the stuff lasts!
Final impression? A strong fairly toxic stimulant drug, disturbingly entertaining and as compulsive as coke. A valuable tool, but handle with care.
