Well, better just stick to intravenous injections of pure heroin to keep it on the safe side there, bucko.

Is there a way to recover the cocaine from this diluent? Could fractional recrystallization be employed? Is there some physical parameter of this substance that is dissimilar to cocaine so that it could be exploited to remove it? If it is strongly polar or non-polar, acid-base could be used to alter the solubility of the alkaloid.

Actually now that I think about it I probably gave a gram to a gram and a half away that night. But it was still two to two and a half grams. Haven't done that shiat since.

Props to soundguy and Non-evil Monkey. That was hardly an article.

Also, isn't it sad to say that if this were decriminalized/legalized where we could buy assorted drugs if we were of age, that this shiat wouldn't happen? I'm not necessarily supporting the legalization and distribution of cocaine, but given the amount of other substances we can legally ingest that can cause numerous side effects (first that comes to mind is Vioxx), how are the two situations really any different? IIRC, cocaine isn't even schedule I, whereas marijuana is.

Frankly, I'm really not for drug enforcement. Legitimate drug education would trump drug enforcement any day of the week. Furthermore, imho, having a consistent and relatively pure source (i.e. fda regulated) of our current 'illegal' drugs wouldn't just cut back on illegal distribution, but it'd also cut down on the number of accidental deaths. From what I remember, most heroin deaths are attributed to an overdose of a purer product that the user was used to using (no citation, too lazy).

In any case, though, this is an illegal product and I can't say that I feel too bad about the affected. Illegal drugs are, for the most part, inherently impure. There is no practical way to test the drugs before one would use them, so there is a correlating risk associated with them. Tough noogies.

Well played. Doesn't cocaine already rot the flesh of mucus membranes? I suppose this additive makes it worse.

cook it into crack. Not a very good solution, btw, but if you are buying it anyway, it can tell you how much of it is coke.

So are they dead in that pic, or did their eyeballs just rupture from the bad crap in the coke?

Levamisole is also sold as a hydrochloride salt just like cocaine and it has similar physical properties when people try to turn it into crack which the older baby laxative cutting agents didn't have so if you take cocaine cut with levamisole vs cocaine cut with baby laxative, mannitol, the mannitol won't convert to crack whereas the levmisole will so the rock yield from equal amounts of coke cut with levamisole will be substantially higher than that cut with mannitol which will prevent you from getting shot.

acetone. you'll be disappointed with the results, when you see how much you're really getting.

The real risk, sorta glossed over in the article, is the low white blood cell count. It's basically AIDS -- you can't fight off anything, and you eventually die of pneumonia.

Illegal drugs are bad, mmmkay? Legalize it, make it safe, tax the hell out of it. Profit.
