08/29/2017 #TestItTuesday Alert: DOC Sold as LSD on Alice in Wonderland Blotter

Blotter sold as LSD on Alice in Wonderland blotter tested as DOC (4-Chloro-2,5-dimethoxyamphetamine), a synthetic psychedelic compound that produces notably long-lived psychedelic effects when ingested. According to Erowid, it is uncommon as a substance for human ingestion. DOC is a very dose-sensitive substance that is often sold on blotter paper. It is known for its long duration (over 12-24 hours), strong visual effects, a unique form of stimulation, and a significant body load. Because of its sensitive dose-response and unusually long duration, many reports suggest that DOC may be difficult to use safely. Testing your LSD using the Ehrlich’s reagent...

Test It Alert: Powder Sold as MDA Tests as Potent Synthetic Cannabinoid

Just today from Utah a sample that was represented as MDA (Sass) was instead found to be AMB-FUBINACA, a potent synthetic cannabinoid. Related compounds sold in the black market as ‘molly’ and as smokable ‘legal highs’ have hospitalized and killed users both in the United States and overseas. Last June, a mass casualty event in Brooklyn where 18 were hospitalized and 33 treated was due to smoked plant matter that had been sprayed with AMB-FUBINACA. The potentially fatal dose for oral consumption of this substance is unknown. The reagent reactions for this particular compound were slight orange on Marquis,...

July 25th #TestItTuesday Alert: Blue Sun Pill Sold as Ecstasy Tests as Amphetamine

A blue pill sourced from Zurich, Switzerland is being marketed and sold as ecstasy (MDMA). Test results published on Friday show the tablet contains 21.1 mg of amphetamine, a common stimulant that is found in Adderall and black market drugs such as speed. As Erowid states, amphetamines are “the standard against which all other stimulants are measured.” Although a commonly used drug, an amphetamine experience is much different than an MDMA experience, so it is always important to know what substance you are consuming in order to properly prepare yourself. Purchase your DanceSafe drug checking kit here so you can...

Let’s get it straight: there is only one ‘type’ of MDMA

The media jumps the gun, and gets it wrong, once again. 'A new type of MDMA' turns out to be a synthetic cannabinoid. Often after adverse medical incidents, the media will push the narrative that a new 'type' of MDMA caused a specific incident. But lets be very, very clear. There are no 'types' of MDMA. A substance is either MDMA, or it's another drug that was misrepresented as MDMA. This is the exact modern equivalent of people in the 1930's who died after drinking industrial methanol sold as 'whiskey', and the cause is the same: Prohibition. Although it is possible to...

On April 19, 1943, Dr. Albert Hofmann became the first person to intentionally ingest LSD. After consuming 250 micrograms (what he believed would be a threshold dose, but is actually nearly 3 times the amount of most modern LSD blotters), he began to experience a deeply altered state. Because the use of motor vehicles was restricted during the war, him and his assistant...
