SewerSquirrels: Gothnet: Gravel huh?

With no details of what it actually is? Or what the dangers might be? Just 'drugs, bad, be afraid'. Awesome.

FTFA: The drug enforcement administration says 'gravel' is similar to bath salts and has been found to be mixed with meth.

Yeah, no idea what it is. I suppose you might as well go ahead and try it. Probably tastes like candy.


Googling is hard!

DEA listed it, along with 9 other synthetic catinones, on the Schedule 1 with a temporary ban, effective February 27, 2014

Legal for two more days, kids. Get it while you can!
 
2014-02-25 05:39:37 PM  

ClavellBCMI: Oh, and the geniuses selling this crap are mixing it with meth. As if meth weren't bad enough all by it's lonesome self.


aPVP is just another constituent of many bath-salts style stims. They tend to be active in incredibly low doses which is why people can go crazy on them - you need less than a pinch not a great fat line.

Ultimately anything that keeps you strung out for days is likely to cause insanity though.

People thought this was true.
If you remember the '60s, you weren't there.


I remember quite a bit of the 60's, but, the farking 70's, there are some large holes, especially the early 70's.  I know I went to concerts, I know who performed, but, I have absolutely no recollection between getting there and getting back home.  I hope I had fun.  "Remember, too much is just barely enough!"

It's got "elements of meth, bath salts and crack cocaine" in it, did you need a complex chemical formula or something?

KidneyStone: zimbomba63: vudukungfu: At least they aren't shooting up mayonnaise or smoking banana peels.

Yes, people did that.

Yes people are stupid.

No, they won't change, ever.

Who did that?  Do you know someone who did that.  That was just something put out, to jerk the adults around.  You know Donovan, "Mellow Yellow, & "Electric Banana will be the very next craze".  You were suppose to bake the peel and then scrape the inside material and smoke that.  There were news articles stating that this was what the "drug craze youth" were doing, but, it was just a joke.

In my college days back in the 80's I witnessed more than one person smoking banana peel scrapings.  The same dipshiat tried smoking Spanish moss because it was green and just HAD to pack a buzz.  Last time i saw him he answered the door stark naked and cackling like a Disney cartoon witch.  He and his roommate had been huffing pure toluene all day.

That would help us know what we're talking about (and someone provided it, also I re-read TFA and found out they're talking about aPVP).

Terms like bath salts are kinda annoying because they cover a whole variety of substances, though that is one of the dangers - you would never know what you were getting into.

We never used to have a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.
The best WE could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.
But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.
Aye. BECAUSE we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, 'Money doesn't buy you happiness.'
 'E was right. I was happier then and I had NOTHIN'. We used to live in this tiiiny old house, with greaaaaat big holes in the roof.

I'm just guessing it is a highly-addictive synthetic drug that contains the chemical Alpha PVP.

Also, I'll go ahead and speculate that side effects of gravel include hallucinations, violent behavior, paranoia, and brain damage.

If only TFA had contained information like that.

You beat me to shaming everyone.  I also checked the Wiki for Alpha PVP and it says it becomes illegal on February 27th, 2014

At Holston Valley Medical Center, doctors say "gravel" is a combination drug of meth, Klonopin and bath salts. It's also highly addictive.

So what can it do to the body? Doctors told us gravel damages the brain, raises the blood pressure and spikes the heart rate.
"The real bad side effect of taking at the doses most people take it in is the paranoia. We've actually seen people become paranoid. People committing suicide from the paranoia," said emergency room physician Dr. Jon Mettert.


Legalize it.

I have lived about an hour away from Dubois County Indiana all of my life.  If you were stuck there, you would likely be willing to do anything to get relief from the abject boredom that every person faces there every day.

Another fun fact for those of you are not familiar with the area, or do not speak southern Indiana hick. Dubois County is pronounced Du-boys, and not Du-bwah.

Well, there's the difference between the two of us you were an "experimenter", where as I only got involved with stuff that was proven to have an effect and that you might, also, survive to see the next day.  No freelancing, for old Zimbomba.  No, "OK, that didn't work, so lets snort the Drano next and see what that does", type of stuff for me.

When I was in the Army, 1970-72, I was stationed at Ft. Bliss, TX.  There were a couple of "experimenters" who went out in to the desert, having heard of the native Americans using various plants to enter "the spirit world".  They didn't know what actual plants were used, but, they wouldn't allow this to deter them from their quest.  They simply  proceeded to eat the seeds and leaves of anything they came across.  As you can imagine, this proved not to be a good plan.  Later that night they staggered into some populated area, obviously, under the influence of something, but, they could really say what.  One guy was actually wandering around with a hairline fracture in his leg. I believe they had a stay in the stockade, after that scientific expedition.

I'm with you. Saw what people looked like and acted like when they huffed paint thinner when I was in high school 1970-74 and that kept me mainstream. Those people killed so much of their brains they were borderline retarded by their early 20s, with multiple personality disorders (put that together long after when remembering behavior).

Tho there was some scary stuff around, I do thankmy lucky stars to have come up in simpler times, at least simpler when it came to getting high.
