Fake Speed


Fake speed is new to the drug scene and it, like K-2 or synthetic marijuana, and synthetic cocaine is legal, but by no means safe. It can be purchased online or in head shops and is a white or yellowish powder labeled as “bath salts” or “plant food.” It is sold in packets or small containers and contains mephadrone or MDPV (methylenedioxypyrovalerone) a psychoactive drug with stimulant properties. It can be snorted or injected int a vein. Mephadrone is created by pseudo-chemists in uncontrolled settings and can cause serious, immediate and long-term damage.

On March 1, 2011, the Drug Enforcement Agency banned the chemicals used to make these synthetic drugs. Possession and sale of these chemicals or products that contain them is illegal in the United States.

Synthetic Cannabinoids are an alternative to THC, the psychoactibe chemical found in marijuana. “Aloha, “ one of the synthetic cannabinoids,m has a fruity smell and comes in small round containers holding 4 grams. It is a green herb with the texture of grinded marijuana. One man had a terrible experience. He said that after smoking the stuff his mind was blown and he virtually lost control. The world was spinning and he lost control of his legs. The world was spinning incredibly fat and the high became extremely unbearable. He couldn’t focus on anything. Then he had extreme nausea and began throwing up non-stop. He was not aware of his surroundings,m where he was or what was going on.

After emptying his stomach he sat down and things got worse. Colors looked too vibrant and unreal. The world was unrecognizable. He couldn’t focus his eyes and saw multiple objects. He was unable to move his arms and everything he wanted to do was delayed. He had terrific pain in his head and chest and felt like he would drop dead. He felt he was going through seizure and his life flashed before his woke up in a daze. The feeling in his arms was returned but his head was pounding and he was beyond tired.

Do not use this or even try it. It has the extreme potential to kill or cause serious damage.

Next time we’ll talk about Kraton, a synthetic opiate and Brown Dragonfly, synthetic LSD.
