Playing With the Devil's Powder
Citation:   Ravunker. "Playing With the Devil's Powder: An Experience with 4-Methylmethcathinone (exp90585)". Apr 9, 2019.

200 mg oral 4-Methylmethcathinone (powder / crystals)
    repeated insufflated 4-Methylmethcathinone (powder / crystals)
I had recently moved to England for a job opening with the company I was working for at the time. This was in early 2010. Previous to that day, I hadn't even heard of what the media was calling 'meow meow'.

I was somewhat surprised that I hadn't heard of Mephedrone before this time since I considered myself quite an experienced user of RC's and drugs in general.

Soon after reading several reviews and trip reports on various forums online, I decided that it wouldn't hurt to order a gram and try out what the media at the time was going crazy about.

I ordered from a reliable source based in the UK and had received my package shortly afterwards. The mephedrone was of a crystal type, and I had knew that there were two types circulating around, the powder and the crystals, and the crystal was the preferred form.

I first decided to parachute 200mg scaled out, and put it in a piece of tissue paper. I was also aware that insulffating was also quite popular, but I decided to wait for the effects before doing that.

After 35 minutes, I started to feel a very familiar feeling, something I would consider 'coke-like'. I was surfing the web, and started to feel the lock-jaw. It was coming onto me in waves, each time feeling better and better. This is when I crushed up a lines worth and took a couple bumps. From parachuting it, it almost, ALMOST, felt like a low extacy dose. It was similar to rolling, my eyes were dancing around and such. But after I started to bump it, it quickly turned into a coke-type sesh.

After those initials bumps, I proceeded to just smash up the rest and kept taking 50mg lines. I felt amazing, and was enthralled by whatever I was doing on the computer at the time. This lasted until I realized I had one line left, 5 hours after the initial parachuting dose. I knew the comedown was about to come, and if it was anything like coke, it was going to be unpleasant.

45 minutes after my last bump, I started to get that familiar feeling of losing that awesome high. I decided to lay on my bed and watch TV to ride it out. I think I made a mistake of not having any Marijuana, because that would have completely made the comedown much better. The best option would have of course been a Benzo of some sort, but I was new to the country and didn't have any sources or even a doctor I could see to obtain some.

A total of 7 hours after the first dose, I was in a state of mind where I was able to sleep, and actually did.

In summary, Mephedrone was simply amazing for such a new research chemical. It gave me a great sense of well being, and I could really compare it to cocaine, and possibly extacy without the visuals.

I had done it probably 5 more times since that first day, and I concluded that it was becoming something like a bad coke habit. It ended up becoming banned in the UK, which was probably a good thing. The media, I think, is most likely is what brought it to its end, claiming X many lives were ended because of overdoses and such.

To be honest, it did have some side effects of vasoconstriction. My hands and feet got cold and clammy. But I never consumed more than a gram total by the end of the night. I had seen images of people with blue knees and worse effects, but luckily that never happened for me. Also there was some nasal issues, but that happens with anything that I am snorting...
