    So it depends which LD50 You is referring to. If You means the LD50 for humans, the answer is "unknown" as such an experiment would be pretty unethical ;). The first (not very scientific I might add) website suggests it should be in the order of 10-20 mg/kg in adults.

    SWIM hopes to have answered your question.

    Just because I work in stones, and dont know the average weight of a human, for an average human, what dose are we talking about if we were to take the midpoint of 15mg/kg? :)

    The average adult men weighs 80 kg, 80x15mg=1200mg.

    Err, yes. For SWiYour serotonin (increased risk of serotonin syndrome), cardio-pulmonary system (heart & lungs), your liver, your kidneys, all in all not the best thing a monkey could do to their system.

    As for smacky pills, the jury is still out on whether such a thing exists. For the prosecution - heroin is just too damn expensive to bother cutting pills with, & there are many other things that could give similar (to someone inexperienced) effects; a decent dose of mdma can be a bit mongy/spacey at times, especially if it isn't being 'worked'. For the prosecution - although smack itself is expensive, other opiates aren't, & there are some unscrupulous/misguided dicks out there who will experiment with different combinations in their pills but still pass it off as 'Ecstacy'; A Certain Mouse has watched a club full of people unable to dance & scratching like flea-bitten dogs from the same batch of pills on more than one occasion, with one ex-smackhead ready to kill whoever made them because of it (this was some time ago, & needless to say a lot of creatures got a refund that night!).

    Buy pills, & that is what you get - a pill, with random ingredients, sometimes nice, sometimes not, sometimes mdma, often not. Without either a testing kit or a source that can be trusted to be honest about their product it's a total lottery.
