    [imgl=white]http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=10982&stc=1&d=1254556733[/imgl]Police are worried about a hallucinogenic drug which they say is becoming more prevalent on Adelaide streets.

    They say the illegal drug DOI has effects even more marked than those experienced when taking LSD.

    The drug is similar in appearance and effects to LSD, but the hallucinations it causes can last up to three days longer.

    Authorities say other short-term effects include mood swings and nausea, but effects can vary significantly from one user to another.

    Police think production of the drug could be happening in South Australia.

    Detective Inspector John De Candia says it has been detected in the metropolitan area but also seized in SA's south-east.

    "It seems to be something predominantly in South Australia, there has been a seizure in Queensland but the majority are in South Australia and it's probably been over the last month or two or three months where it's started to emerge," he said.

    "One of the street names for it can be wangers, there's also the name of it as doctor eye.

    "They maybe selling it as trips, as LSD, and the concern is the fact that LSD may have a reaction after probably two hours or three hours and last up to 12 hours - they may not get an effect from this drug for about 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 hours."

    Jeff Munro from the Australian Drug Foundation says DOI has been found in the United States for some time but rarely in Australia until now.

    "There are certainly health dangers with this drug and it's a drug that people should be very wary of," he said.

    Here is the article you are talking about:



    Extra-strong new hallucinogenic drug hits Adelaide, police warn


    A NEW hallucinogenic drug which lasts three days longer than LSD has emerged in Adelaide, police say.

    The drug, referred to as DOI, is increasingly coming to the attention of South Australian police and health officials.

    The drug can have fatal effects and has strong hallucinogenic properties including visual and audio distortion, SA Police Detective Inspector John de Candia said.

    Consistent with other synthetic hallucinogens such as LSD, the effects of DOI are unpredictable and can vary for each user, Mr De Candia said in a statement.

    The Royal Adelaide Hospital has reported treating a number of hallucinogen overdoses from unknown substances consistent with the toxicity of DOI, he said.

    Some users reported feeling fearful due to the intensity and duration of the effect of the drug, which lasts two to three days longer than LSD, he said.

    Mr De Candia said effects included mood swings, anxiety, paranoia, exhilaration, numbness, muscle twitching, increased heart rate and blood pressure, and nausea and vomiting.

    Re: new drug on streets

    wait, consistent like other unpredictable psychedelics? Proves how well thought out this article is..... And don't you just LOVE how only the negative effects are given and how the drug is demonized, although it's "new"?

    Re: new drug on streets

    Well yeahhh, that seems to be the media's job lately. If all they talked about was the posative effects then they would have all them drug biggots who would love nothing more than to see drug users hung, calling them whinin. Plus if this is from austrailia, then we all know what the goverment, law and media are like there, when it comes to drugs. By the way, Im not being a jerk, just angers me the way our general high society or people who are given control of our countrys, attack drugs. Yet I have to watch 5 liqour commercials during a half hour sitcom. (Not knocking on booze, just wish they would treat them equally.) Anyways, sliding off topic. Sorry:thumbsdown:

    Should be some images of LSD blotter that have circulated in the past that contained DOI in the archives.


    This seems to be making the news in AU for some reason- though this is certainly not new. a couple other stories:

    Re: new drug on streets

    You mean they are saying the amphetamine analogue of 2C-I is a new drug? Whats wrong with media. Can't they ever report a story involving drugs after checking facts? It first appeared publicly in literature with it's entry in PIHKAL and that was in 1991, and before that DOB and DOM have been around since the 60's. they try to paint it in a dangerous light because it's "a NEW hallucinogenic drug". How many thousands of millions of trips have been taken from DOI since 1991? Enough with few hospital visits to deem it a relatively safe drug. And no deaths so far

    Re: new drug on streets

    Personally, I do think it's a concern that it can last up to 2 or 3 days. And its quite likely that there are dealers passing DOI off as LSD or another substance.

    Re: new drug on streets

    Real story should be "Drug laws cause drug sales to be handled by criminals instead of a regulated market handled by citizens so drugs are sold that are NOT what they are advertised!" How is that problem solved? regulate the sale of drugs and shit like this won't happen. SWIM swears drug laws cause most of the dangers associated with drug use. If it was legal this wouldn't happen. You would have competition from distributers to have the best product around and all substances would be GC/MS-ed to verify identity before being sold to anyone. And dosages could be controlled. At this point in time its up to the individual to educate themselves on what the proper dosage is and what the effects are. And the problem with that is most individuals are not very intelligent and don't research any subject past anything that they're told about it.

    Oh and it doesn't help that Pihkal is a banned book of Australia. How can people explore safely without reference material that reduces risk? They can come to this site that's for sure!

    Re: new drug on streets

    Oh of course, I agree with what you're saying 100% Desertfox. I'm just saying with the laws as they are, this isn't that benign of a drug.

    Re: new drug on streets

    If the drug is being passed off as LSD, looked like LSD and cost the same, then if SWIM was expecting to have a nice afterglow the next day, waking up tripping balls for 3 days would be worrisome. IT would make SWIM think the tripping myth was true: "What if you NEVER came down". SWIM always did come down but the thought usually crosses his mind after the 12th hour of tracers and waves of color.

    Swim would not think 3 days would be fun. Is sleep possible?
