    Okay. In Thailand there's summit called YABA and I think it means CRAZY DRUG or something and it's pills of methamphetamine that I think are suppose to be smoked? (might be wrong on the smoking bit)

    Amphetamines and Methamphetamines are often found in pills, sometimes because it's a cheap alternative to MDMA and others because it's a prescription drug.

    If it's a street drug then you can never be sure what yous getting unless you have a test kit or better send it to a lab for proper testing. Remember that when you ask "what are the made from" - in general it'll contain binders, fillers, colouring and then actual drug chemicals so it'll be made from HOPEFULLY a blend of dextromethamphetamine/levomethamphetamine - how many mg I don't know and I wouldn't be surprised if the dealer didn't know either.

    It's basically the drug PRESSED as a pill. Now this brings up the next Q:

    What is better pills or crystal/powder?

    I can tell you from MDMA that there's not much difference, it's the SAME DRUG but it could YES easy be a different isomer blend but that can be true with both. Alot of the time people say MDMA pills have a cleaner high or lesser comedown - chances are they are pinning it down to a few experiences. The reality is pills are more "legit" in the sense if I know that there's a pills that's green with a 1 on and it's the best thing since canned fruit and his dealer has them? then chances are it would both be produced by the same place - now YES it's very possible to make fake clones but with MDMA pills now the good legit ones tend to be pressed of HIGH QUALITY meterials - so if You has a clone - chances are, by looking at it he can tell if it's of low quality - like for example the FAKE OXYCONTINS and FAKE MONEY. This WONT be AS TRUE with Methamphetamine pills though. People tend to state that "oh yes I get good pure molly" - the reality is chances are it's cut!

    Desoxyn(TM) IS the prescription methamphetamine brand. Unlike street meth, Desoxyn has been made in a proper lab, does not contain poor quality adulterants, has a standard dose, and is meant to be consumed orally.

    Take a look at the pills offered, enter their color, shape, and any writing on them into Google with the words "Pill ID" to verify what they are. (do not do that here, we are not a pill ID site)

    Sounds like a lucky break, clean meth is a rare gift.

    Dextroamphetamine is said to be twice as powerful as meth. And it is the main ingredient of Aderrall, a pill which is 75% Dextroamphetamine. According to the rippers living in swims basement, on average it take a little more than one point(.1g) of meth to get a first timer high. This is equivalent to 4.4 30mg Adderall pills in weight(100mg/[30mg*.75]). Many of the undead that the rippers bring in say that the meth high is way better than adderall high. However I am willing to bet that if they could obtain the same amount of adderall in weight that they consume in meth, Adderall would prove to be a far more superior experience per gram in terms of high!

    Greensane added 1 Minutes and 6 Seconds later...

    In other words Adderall is pure meth in a pill.

    This is very confusing. If dextroamphetamine is pure meth, why don't they just call it methamphetamine?
    Could you do a little research and cite your source for this information please? I'm wondering if maybe you could be mistaken?

    I did not mean it exactly...swim meant it in other words more like based on what I has said. Taking anything literally defeats of the point. Chemical structure similar, effects similar, look no further if You is looking for meth in a pill.

    In other other words, Adderall is NOT pure meth in a pill. There is no METH at all in Adderall, there is levo and dextro amphetamine, but neither levo nor dextro methamphetamine. And, it is accepted in the medical community that methamphetamine is significantly more powerful than plain ol' non-methylated amphetamine. Methamphetamine, being more aliphatic, can cross cell membranes faster, thus protecting it from degradation from MAO enzymes. This is one reason why methamphetamine is a more potent stimulant than amphetamine.

    Semantically speaking...no! But, I am not a rigid semantic and hates that fucking bullshit. Don't twist the truth just because it does not have the same root verbal meaning. The point has been made. The effects are similar, and only differ in potency. The compound has similar structure. It is may as well be meth in a pill.

    Guess what, we take semantics quite seriously here. If chemical structure is different, then the drugs are different. Calling a zebra a horse doesn't make it a horse. When dealing with chemicals like the 2c series, a single atom can turn the chemical from nearly non-toxic to nearly deadly.

    Drugs are nothing BUT semantics.

    Zebra is not a horse, but it in the horse family. Just because they are not spelled the same does not mean they don't share similarities. If You look into the issue of similarity between adderall and meth, instead of discrediting via semantics, then You would find that I am not the only one expressing this view.

    Greensane, I understand your point. What you need to understand though, is that at Drugs-Forum, we value factual information and nobody here is going to leave a statement like the one you made unchallenged. Don't take it personal. No one here would attack you personally, but we do expect you to stick to verifiable facts regarding drugs.
    Do you want some guy going around telling his friends that adderall is methamphetamine? We sure don't want them learning things like that at this site.
    This is not a site where drug use is glorified, nor is it a site where drug use is frowned upon. It's simply a place where people can go to learn the facts about drugs and their safe use. Harm reduction is paramount here.
    Take a deep breath, realize we are just correcting you for the sake of truth in drug information and resolve not to make any more statements like that and you will be fine!
    You won't find another site like this anyplace on the web. New members are welcome because everyone has something valuable to contribute, but if they can't be mature and careful not to say things about drugs that aren't verifiable, and have a bad attitude about being corrected, they never last long.
    Here's hoping you stick around.

    Adderall is an amphetamine, it differs from meth merely by a methyl group(1carbon, 2hydrogens). Ya'll are right in saying that the two are chemically different, and I agree that they are. However the difference is eliminated upon ingestion, because the methyl group breaks of from meth and it becomes an amphetamin, just like Adderall. This is the evidence that leads me to conclude that the two are not all that different. If You would like to prove this wrong please do so with evidence. So far nothing but "You is wrong, and we like facts" has been said and no facts to the contrary have been provided. I am here to learn too, so if You all think his thinking is misguided, please give him factual reason to believe so instead of blowing "tactful" smoke:(.

    Ok. Sorry.
    I think I will just stay out of this discussion. If I can't teach, maybe I can learn.

    I'm not sure why you think this is the case. Methamphetamine is not simply the prodrug of amphetamine. In fact neither of the two major metabolites of methamphetamine reported to be detectable in urine (methamphetamine itself and 4-hydroxymethamphetamine) are N-demethylated as you suggest. So the parent drug and its major metabolite are the "major players" and chemically distinct from what is produced by consumption of amphetamine.

    It's true that some of the minor metabolites of methamphetamine are N-demethylated and then shunted down metabolic pathways similar to that of amphetamine, but the ADME properties of the compound as a whole are quite different to amphetamine.

    Gasoline is much more powerful than dextroamphetamine. That doesn't mean gasoline gives a better high than dextroamphetamine and it doesn't mean that gasoline should be worth more than dextroamphetamine.

    PS. Don't try drinking, snorting, or smoking gasoline. This was a ridiculous example to show the inaccuracies in comparing the two drugs named. Gasoline is not a strong replacement for dextroamphetamine.

    My friend has had both meth and adderall many a time, and while there are similarities my friend says they do feel noticeably different to someone with experience (meth is more euphoric and cleaner). Also, my friend also said for a first timer, give them 30-50 mg (of good shit) and they would be charged! No way would they need over a point!

    My cats has done both adderal and meth and in his opinion it seems like the adderal is stronger in smaller amount compared to strait meth. He also noticed that the effects last longer on the adderal. But this is based on him usually taking 100-200 mg of adderal, and on other occasions he does about .3g of meth usually split between lines and being smoked in less than an hour. Hope my two cents help.

    So in this case you would class heroin and morphine the same chemical?
