On a dose to dose comparison, significantly more people end up hospitalized or dead due to tylenol misuse. Please understand that even though you are just hearing about this, it's been for sale on the internet for years now. Millions of doses have been sold and consumed. Sorry for those 100's, but in all reality that's a pretty good number.

The rest is mostly alarmist garbage.

Now, as for the addictive potential... well, I think that's where the issue truly is with this substance. In my experience, this alone will be sufficient to deter most would-be users / repeat users (curiosity will sometimes win). The remaining 11% of the population who are true addicts, well, they'll use SOMETHING, ALWAYS, regardless of what's legal or not.

As much as people skinning off their own faces or pulling off their own scrotums, I can't help but believe that this is BY FAR the exception, rather than the rule. If it's true at all. There must be an awful lot of faceless, sackless peeps running around with powder on their noses.....

All this featured in the movie layer cake, in the begining of movie. "X / mdma" was legal and sold at vitamin store "gnc" for years. Then "incense k2/ apocalypse" , etc.. came around . Now "bath salts" ivory wave , cloud 9 , revitalize . DEA ban them and chemist will tweak formula's and it's a legal verison . Let the people do what they want !! I can drink 3 red bulls and have a heart / panic attack. Some people are going to wig / tweak out on stuff . It's abuse . Forget the dea , America is just mad because they want some money. Look at some presciptions drugs 'prozac " "zanax" "morphine" to state a few , eat a couple of these things and see what happens. Just because these drug companies have millions to pay lobbyist / polictians off. So these drugs are now deemed safe by the fda ? Safe , my behind addictive as anything else. It's sick dea , drug companies , lobbyist , polictians , this whole government is corrupt . As long as the rich get richer and poor stay poor, everyone on top is happy. Only in the USA !! From big brother to the mark they want to put on your hand/wrist what happen to old fashion America !!! I'm only 30 saying this !!
