This is a bit of a rant, sorry. Just not sorry enough to not have typed it.
MDPV is actually quite safe when used by someone who knows wtf they're doing. Kind of like most drugs. All the "side effects" that you listed are knee jerk scare tactic mainstream media vomit.
Yes, if you take a dose that is 20x the size of a safe one, because you have no clue what you're doing, bad things will happen. If I took a spoon to a tin of coffee and chowed down on all 33.9 ounces of that mother, bad things would happen to me too. I don't though, because I know better. People do in fact do drugs, whether you like it or not, and the sooner we accept this and educate the better we will all be.
I'll admit if I order some synthetic uppers from the internet or go buy some at a gas station I have no clue what I'm getting. Like anything, and especially mind altering substances, buyer needs to beware.... times 100. It probably sounds like I would have sympathy for people overdosing on this synthetic stuff but I don't. What kind of everloving moron trusts anything a gas station sells them let alone powerful mind altering psychedelics and stimulants. You have got to be kidding me.
The only time I feel bad is when someone is given it without their knowledge.
Anyway, thanks for spreading more misinformation about scare tactic nonsense you know nothing about we all appreciate it.
Even just calling them bath salts is terrible. Call them the drug that they are. Oh wait you have no idea because you just read about it on yahoo news.
"so little is known and the chemistry varies..."
NO. Just no.
ALOT is known about.... well, all drugs. Even the synthetic ones that are like a decade old and you guys are just hearing about. Did you know there's like 40 different types of synthetic THC alone, all with different chemical structures and different mental and physical effects? They are all labeled, and numbered, and, shocker, you can find descriptions of the effects of most of them, as well as dosage info.
There is TONS of info about this stuff on the net if you're willing and able to both find and sort through the nonsense. Shame that real life saving info is pushed underground because OH NO DRUGS MUST COVER EARS AND EYES LALALALA
