SWIM's experiences with speed have all been with chemicals he bought from people in pubs, nothing that You could get a prescription for, nothing that was ever in a foil packet. In the UK, this kind of illegal speed (called speed, base, white, putty and various other things) comes in the consistency of play-do, and off white, if you're lucky. If you're not lucky, it comes in the consistency of tomato pureé and is pure white. If You keeps this nasty shit in a poly-bag for 2 weeks in a fag box, he/she will take it out to find it has become a very fine snortable powder. Some sources will provide it to You already in powder form, some only sell it as putty (the prefered state, because of bombing/parachuting reasons). SWIM's question is - Is it worth smoking this stuff? He's done it a few times in the past, but only when he's just neeeded it to hit him faster so that his binge dosen't crash and burn and result in headaches and bleeuuch. Either that or when he's at a party with bags of other chemicals in him, so it's hard to tell what exactly it does. His other question is: can he stick it in a pipe and hit it with a flame? or does he need to vapourise it? I do have access to ways of vapourising in glass pipes without shelling out on some electric buzzing heat machine thing. SWIM's does drugs, i haven't, i don't really know what speed it, but i'll pass on your replies to SWIM. Thanks in advance.
