2 oral Bad/Suspect Ecstasy (pill / tablet)


Now, I felt it necessary to elaborate on the compound PMA. It seems Para-methoxy-amphetamine gets nothing but a bad name here. Anyways, seems everyone gets all upset about PMA because they take it thinking its ecstasy (MDMA). Now MDMA you can usually take several doses without having problems. Per weight MDMA is less physiologically potent then PMA. Oh we should get to the report? Sorry I was just trying to expound on knowing your chemicals before you consume them.

Now as a young man, around 17 or 18 I worked at an undisclosed sandwich shop. One of my slightly older co-workers had a pension for acquiring various pills, preferentially ecstasy.

Now once upon a time, in the spring of the year said co-worker acquired what was distributed as green Mitsubishis that were sold as ecstasy (MDMA). Said co-worker required a favor, something like me covering his shift on Friday night so he could bang Suzzie Sluton. I agreed under the provision he provide me with a Mitz or Two. Yada yada.

Being the ever vigil chemically minded genius psychonuat, I researched the composition of said pills before I consumed them. My research indicated that they were PMA and not to be taken lightly in hot dancy situations.

A little more research indicated that some of the side effects of PMA were talkativity and focus (like meth).

Now being both familiar with MDMA and Amphetamine, I would state that PMA is far more similar to methamphetamine (only with some mild psychedelic effects similar to MDMA). Going right along. I believe it was a Tuesday. I got to skip school because I was on the speech team. When I woke up I consumed a tab of PMA.

I arrived at school and boarded the bus to the speech competition. As the bus took off preliminary effects ensued. I was overly aware of everyone's speech, overly aware of the acceleration of the bus, overly aware of the difference of colors, and insulted by time. The trip dragged on, unusual to note, even with a amphetamine analog in my system I dosed of for a major duration of the trip, awakening only as the plubians I was traveling with began to awake an jabber like south American monkeys.

As we approached our destination I shoke off some cob webs. I was still overtly aware that I was intoxicated. However since I was in a calm open environment I don't believe I was overly taxed by the effects of the compound ... Actually in many ways I would say the effects at appropriate doses are quite similar to Ritalin, but what do I know.

Eventaully I gave some in-prompto speeches. And eventually Me and a partner performed a scene from Shakespear's Ceaser.

Apparently we tore it up. I got every word perfectly.

The day dragged but eventually me and my associate got first place in state for our rendition of shakespeare.

The day being long, I drifted off on the way home. I slept well with pleasant dreams. I have no complaints about PMA as long as you understand it is a peculiar Amphetamine.

Well maybe that's the best way to end it.
