    well a friend of mine, whos name will remain anonymous, took seventy
    five triple c's when he really wanted to trip. this is a very fucked up
    kid, heroin addict, coke/crack addict, pot head, regular acid user,
    shroomy, methadone user, prescription drug user, pretty much any mind
    altering substance he can get his hands on. he took seventy five c's
    and ended up in the hospital for two weeks, and almost died. just
    another story about how c's are bad, and just one more asshole to make
    dxm look bad. it is people like that, that will get dextromethorphan
    permanately outlawed.

    I'm pretty sure DXM is here to stay. The majority of the population
    have never heard the word and most people don't know/don't believe that
    you can get high off cough syrup.



    It hasn't become a problem, and most likely wont, but they sure like to
    make a really big deal out of it when someone CCC's themself to death. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't be so sure about that, in the U.S I see it becoming scheduled/prescription in our lifetime at least. There is already plenty of organizations trying to get dxm scheduled now. Will they be successful? of course not anytime soon but it will happen eventually.

    Damn, that's 2250mg (correct me if I'm wrong) of DXM... that could kill
    some people alone, and then the CPM on top of it... That dude's lucky.



    It's hard to say about the future of DXM as far as legality goes, but I
    could definitely see the pulling of DXM-only products, or the adding of
    some ingredient that would make high doses very unpleasant (maybe along
    the lines of sorbitol) as a deterrant.



    I could also see it going into prescription-only as well... I don't
    really think it would go so far as to get scheduled, at least not until
    some other (non-psychoactive) effective cough suppressant is
    found. Just my opinion though.

    allot of the cough suppressants that i see are just menthol. that seems
    to work just fine. but all the kids abusing it has really made the
    cough and cold companies proffit. heh

    Over the past 2 weeks I have seen 4 stories on my local news stations
    about CCC's and Robo. If stupid kids would stop being well so
    stupid maybe it wouldn't have to be like this. I still think that
    it is a cough suppresent ans should stay that way.

    I agree with phungushead. There will most likely be some law made where
    it has to be mixed with one or two other inactive ingredients, like
    they did with codeine, before it would be made illegal.



    If it was made illegal, I wouldn't be too angry though. I'm really only
    using it as a marijuana alternative. Er well not an actual alternative,
    just something to keep me high until I'm off probation. Outlawing
    marijuana is pushing people into other drugs, and I'm an example of
    that. Since I got busted, I've started smoking tobacco, drinking
    alcohol, using DXM, and abusing Xanax, Adderall, and a few other
    prescriptions.



    By the time it was outlawed (if such a thing ever happened), I would be
    done with DXM anyway. I hear a lot about how it stops working for some
    people/starts becoming unpleasant.



    But people do need their cough remedy and menthol isn't going to cut
    it. That reminds me... some of my friends are such idiots that they
    think they're getting high off menthol cough drops... lmao [​IMG]

    I can see them eventually outlawing it. The thing with weed is,
    there is not really a "smart" point to ban it, and there are many many
    smart points to make it legal. Alcohol is a killer drug compared
    to weed, weed doesnt do as much damage, physically or emotionally than
    alcohol does, not to even mention the dangers of DUI's. A DUI
    with a person who's high isn't really a threat at all in my
    opinion. DXM, when taken smartly, also does little to no damage.

    DXM is going to go to prescription only, a supplier was recently raided
    and charged with a unrelated crime yet they used that as an excuse to
    seize all his DXM and equipment.
