Molly Moonrocks Inside Capsules

Chances are if you are a part of the rave scene or even just a normal human being now days you have heard of molly. It is talked about in songs, on the news, it’s mentioned in movies and so on and so forth. As we all know molly is a street name for pure MDMA, but what about molly moonrocks? Supposedly this molly moonrocks are just molly in a different form, rocks as opposed to powder, and they are the newest and best thing to be seen and used by “rollers” and “ravers” to date.

So as we said before molly is the street name for pure MDMA standing for molecule. Molly is different than ecstasy pills or “E” because it comes powder form or in clear capsules that are touted to be more clean or pure in comparison to ecstasy pills.

Molly’s effects on its users can vary but generally they stay pretty much the same. For instance, in most molly users, molly starts to kick in about 45 minutes to an hour after taking it and its peak effects start to kick in at about two to three hours. After the peak molly kind of stables off and the effects last about two to three more hours and then there is a comedown. Molly has intense euphoric effects that make it very appealing to its users:

•             An alteration in consciousness

•             A strong sense of inner peace and self-acceptance

•             Diminished fear, anxiety, and insecurity

•             Diminished aggression, hostility, and jealousy

•             Feelings of intimacy and love for others

•             Feelings of empathy, compassion and forgiveness towards others

•             Increased energy and endurance

•             Mild psychedelic, mental imagery and auditory and visual distortions or hallucinations

•             Improved self confidence

•             Increased drive, desire and motivation

•             The ability to talk about normally anxiety provoking issues

•             An intensification of all bodily senses

•             Stimulation, arousal and enhancement of appreciation of music

So if molly does all of this what do molly moonrocks do? Molly moonrocks take everything that molly does and supposedly times that by about 100. There really isn’t any concrete evidence about molly moonrocks just what is known from people who have used it. According to some users of molly moonrocks, it is way more potent than just plain old molly. Which makes you have to ask the question what is in it then? According to some users of molly moonrocks, they say molly moonrocks are like the uncrushed form of molly. Molly moonrocks are essentially molly before it is cut and broken down into powder form. This makes molly moonrocks actually the MOST pure form of MDMA on the streets today.

So why the name molly moonrocks if it is just purer molly? Well because it comes in the form of rocks not powder like molly. Molly moonrocks have a yellow or tan tint to them and look like chunks of rock candy or if you want to be really creative moon rocks. To take molly moonrocks it is most common to put a little pebble of it on your tongue and let it dissolve. This will then cause the effects as mentioned above except they are supposed to be more intense.

The actual term moonrock has been around for long than molly has believe it or not. Moonrock according to most people is a slang name for the mixture of crack and heroin. In fact there is so little known about molly moonrocks that whatever it is it has rarely been heard of except in the crack and heroin form.

Hallucinogens in Addiction Treatment

Hallucinogens in Addiction Treatment

Treating Drug Abuse with…Drugs?

An up-and-coming approach to treating drug abuse is the use of hallucinogens in addiction treatment. Specifically, researchers are looking to Ibogaine, a natural hallucinogen that has been used for centuries in other parts of the world for ritual ceremonies. Currently, Ibogaine is being used in some European countries and Mexico for the treatment of drug addiction.

What are Hallucinogens?

Hallucinogenic compounds found in some plants and mushrooms (or their extracts) have been used—mostly during religious rituals—for centuries. Almost all hallucinogens contain nitrogen and are classified as alkaloids. Many hallucinogens have chemical structures similar to those of natural neurotransmitters. While the exact mechanisms by which hallucinogens exert their effects remain unclear, research suggests that these drugs work, at least partially, by temporarily interfering with neurotransmitter action or by binding to their receptor sites.

Using Hallucinogens in Addiction Treatment

Ibogaine, is a naturally occurring psychoactive substance found in plants. A hallucinogen with both psychedelic and dissociative properties, the substance is banned in some countries; in other countries it is being used to treat addiction to methadone, heroin, alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamine, and other drugs. Derivatives of ibogaine that lack the substance’s hallucinogenic properties are under development.

And scientists say Ibogaine might be the best way to break drug addicts of their habit.

Ibogaine has intrigued researchers since 1962, when Howard Lotsof, a student at New York University and an opiate addict, found that a single dose erased his drug cravings without causing any withdrawal symptoms. Unfortunately, the hallucinogen can increase the risk of cardiac arrest, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency lists it as a Schedule I substance, a classification for drugs like ecstasy and LSD with “no known medical value” and “high potential for abuse,” making it difficult to get federal funding to run clinical trials. That is, currently it is not legal to use hallucinogens in addiction treatment.

Animal tests have shown the drug’s medicinal promise. “Rats addicted to morphine will quit for weeks after receiving ibogaine,” says Stanley Glick, the director of the Center for Neuropharmacology and Neuroscience at Albany Medical College. And addicts have reported positive effects in Mexico and Europe, where ibogaine therapy is legal.

From the limited research, though, scientists have two theories about how the use of hallucinogens in addiction treatment works. Some say it’s purely biological—that ibogaine degrades into a compound that binds with opiate receptors in the brain to quiet cravings. Others believe that it is also psychological. Those who use hallucinogens report a change in perspective and outlook on life. Researchers believe that this aspect of the hallucination provides perspective on the negative aspects of drug use, and so the drug addict will strive to quit.

The Argument for the use of Hallucinogens in Addiction Treatment

Regardless of the mechanism, proving ibogaine works is essential to winning approval and funding for clinical trials of using hallucinogens in addiction treatment. And, in the U.S., the sooner the better: Nearly seven million Americans abuse illicit drugs, costing the nation an estimated $181 billion a year in health care, crime and lost productivity.

















Teens Abusing Dissociative Drugs

PCP - Teens Abusing Dissociative Drugs

Teens Abusing Dissociative Drugs

Dissociative drugs are just the fancy term for substances such as PCP (phencyclidine) and ketamine. Both of these disassociate drug were initially developed for their use in surgery. Dissociative drugs distort your perceptions of sight and sound, but the reason they get the term “dissociative” is because they cause feelings of detachment or dissociation from your environment and from yourself. Dissociative drugs are not the same as hallucinogens and the effects they produce are not known as hallucinations. PCP and ketamine, the most common dissociative drugs, are known properly as “dissociative anesthetics.”

The most common dissociative drug that teens use, that even you may take on a monthly basis is dextromethorphan which is found in cough suppressants at your local drugstore. When cough suppressants with dextromethorphan are taken in high doses they can produce effects very similar to their more potent sister drugs PCP and ketamine.

The ways that dissociative drugs work are by altering the distribution of the neurotransmitter glutamate throughout the brain. Glutamate has a lot to do with the perception of pain, your responses to your environment, and your memory. PCP is considered the poster child for dissociative drugs and the effects it produces widely apply to ketamine and dextromethorphan too.

So what does this have to do with teens abusing dissociative drugs? Well, teens can easily get their hands on dissociative drugs through cough suppressants and believe it or not, while it may not be as easy, can get their hands on ketamine too. The most popular dissociative drug that teens are abusing is dextromethorphan which you can find in Vicks and other name brand cough medicines and it’s over-the-counter too.

According to statistics in 2008, it was found that one in 10 American teens had abused products with dextromethorphan known to them as DXM. This makes a dissociative drug more popular than other illicit drugs such as cocaine, ecstasy, LSD and meth. Does this mean you should never use cough syrup? No. Taking products with DXM in them is totally safe unless taken in large doses.

So teens are abusing dissociative drugs, but why?

  • For one, a dissociative drug such as DXM is easy for them to get. There are numerous amounts of over-the-counter drugs that contain DXM. Teens are abusing dissociative drugs not even knowing exactly what they are. All teens know is that the DXM in cough syrups and even more commonly, oral tablets such as Coricidin, are making them “high.”
  • Secondly, teens are abusing dissociative drugs because it is cheap. Compared to buying a small amount of cocaine for a little over 50 dollars, teens can abuse dissociative drugs for 5-10 dollars. It is easy to support a DXM habit when it is as cheap as cough syrup.
  • Thirdly, teens are abusing dissociative drugs because there isn’t as much risk involved. Not only is it more expensive to seek out other illicit drugs such as cocaine or meth, it is also more dangerous. For teens, it is safer to walk into a drugstore than it is to go to a street corner or dealer’s house.
  • And lastly teens are abusing dissociative drugs such as DXM because they think it is safer than doing drugs such as cocaine, heroin, or meth. This is incorrect unfortunately but because they aren’t getting the drugs from the street corner and DXM is legal and also a brand name medicine, it seems safer for teens to abuse.

There are a few other reasons teens are abusing dissociative drugs such as its popularity among the younger population and also the ability to keep it a secret from their parents. This makes for the high numbers of teens who are abusing DXM. This DXM use should be taken seriously because it can be a sign that a teen is willing to take other more dangerous drugs and also that they may want to get their hands on more serious dissociative drugs such as PCP and ketamine.

Either way, dissociative drugs being abused by teens has been a problem and continues to be one not only for themselves but also for their parents.




Club Drugs

Club Drugs


Club Drugs

Club drug is a loosely used term that is used to define and categorize a group of recreational drugs which are associated primarily with clubs and raves. The use of club drugs was big in the 1980s up to the 2000s. Most drugs are defined by their properties whereas these drugs are categorized by where they are used for convenience. This is because usually club drugs are sold at the venue where people take them. So for instance you go to rave and you can probably by ecstasy there. Club drugs are substances that include ecstasy, 2c-B, inhalants, cocaine, hallucinogens, LSD, mushrooms. Club drugs can vary from town to town, state to state, and country to country. Most people use these drugs to stimulate them while at a club or rave.

Club drugs really began to become popular in the mid-to-late 1970s disco club era. Followed by the subculture in the 60s there was thriving drug use also in the 70s. The drugs that thrived in the 1970s disco club era were ones that would enhance the experience. For instance make dancing to the loud music more fun and make the flashing lights on the dance floor more sparkly. Back then the biggest club drug was cocaine or in street terms “blow”. Cocaine wasn’t alone as the only club drug though, there was also nitrous oxide and the other essential club drug that really isn’t around anymore known as a Quaalude.

As times changed more drugs such as ecstasy and various amphetamines made themselves onto the club drug forefront. Ecstasy followed suit with the rave crowd although no drug is exclusive to any one kind of party. In fact club drugs could also be called party drugs, or party pills. Other more subtle party pills or club drugs to make their way on to the scene were GHB, and the dissociative drug Ketamine. GHB and ketamine are not stimulants but are still considered club drugs.

Today, in some areas they take heroin as a club drug even though heroin is an opiate and not a stimulant at all. Club drugs are mainly used by young adults and teens today and the venue can also include concerts and parties rather than raves and clubs.

Regardless of their use for having a good time out, club drugs are extremely addictive and dangerous. For example, repeated GHB use may lead to withdrawal effects when a person tries to stop. Withdrawal from GHB can include insomnia, anxiety, tremors and sweating. MDMA or ecstasy can leave a person totally drained the next day and unable to function. Long term use of ecstasy can cause some serious brain problems. Ketamine in high doses can cause impaired motor function, high blood pressure, and potentially fatal respiratory problems.

So while the name club drug may give off the impression that the substances that fall under that category are tons of fun they also come with tons of dangers. It is not uncommon to hear stories about kids today dying of drug overdoses at dubstep show, concert, rave, or club because they didn’t have the knowledge about what they were taking.

Top 10 Abused Drugs in 2012

Drug abuse in 2012 is at an all-time high in the United States.

More people than ever are using illicit drugs, and abuse of prescription drugs has reached an epidemic level. Here is a list of the top 10 abused drugs in 2012.

1.) Alcohol: Alcohol continues to be the number one drug abused in the US. With over half the US population identified as current drinkers, it is by far the most common drug of abuse in 2012. Alcohol is more socially acceptable than other drugs because of its legality. Unfortunately, this causes many to forget that alcohol is also responsible for more deaths in the United States than any other drug. Alcohol abuse is linked to traffic fatalities, violence, cirrhosis, liver failure, and permanent brain damage.

2.) Nicotine: The primary ingredient in tobacco is the second most abused drug in 2012. One quarter of Americans are current tobacco users. The use of tobacco has become less common in the US over the last decade, but it is still one of the most abused drugs in the US.

3.) Marijuana: Marijuana continues to be the number one abused illicit drug in 2012. Most Americans do not view marijuana as a dangerous drug, but its use has been linked to memory impairment, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, mental illness, and traffic fatalities.

4.) Prescription drugs: Treatment for prescription drug abuse and addiction has increased 300% since 2005. The CDC has called prescription drug abuse in 2012 an “epidemic.” Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the United States. Painkillers like oxycodone are the most commonly abused prescription drug in 2012.

5.) Cocaine: Although cocaine use has decreased from the epidemic level observed in the 80’s, cocaine remains one of the most abused drugs in 2012. The quick but intense high of cocaine abuse results in severe psychological dependence and intense drug craving.

6.) Inhalants: Inhalants are becoming one of the more and more commonly abused drugs in 2012 because they are easy to get (they are sold over the counter) and they are relatively cheap. Users inhale toxic chemicals in order to get high. The most common are shoe polish, glue, gasoline, spray paint, cleaning fluid, “poppers,” and nitrous oxide. Inhaling chemicals is very dangerous, overdose and death can happen on first use.

7.) Methamphetamine: Methamphetamine is popular in rural United States because it is cheap, easy to manufacture at home, and requires no special equipment or expertise. Illicit methamphetamine abuse in 2012 is also at one of the highest levels since the 60’s. It is one of the most abused drugs in 2012.

8.) Ecstasy: Ecstasy is the 8th most abused drug in 2012. It is the club drug of choice among young people in the US. It is used for the feeling of euphoria and closeness with others. However, even short-term use can cause severe depression, muscle tension, chills, blurred visions, faintness, teeth clenching, sweating, and nausea.

9.) Hallucinogens: Hallucinogens can include a number of drugs including LSD, PCP, psilocybin mushrooms, and ketamine. In this class, LSD is the most abused drug in 2012. The effects of LSD are very unpredictable, and can cause psychosis.

10.) Heroin: Last on or list of the most abused drugs in 2012, is heroin. Made from the resin of poppy plants, heroin is highly addictive and withdrawal is excruciating. Once considered the ultimate drug addiction, heroin has taken a backseat to prescription painkillers which have similar effects and are more readily available in some parts of the US.
