The availability of MDMA
on the street
, along with most of the other "alphanumeric drugs" (e.g. 2C-B
, pretty much everything
mentioned in PiHKAL
) means one thing:
Chemistry graduate students gone bad.
These drugs are NOT easy to make. A synthesizer must have extensive experience in highly complex chemical reactions, laboratory procedure, etc.
So, basically, there are a lot of very, very smart chemistry students out there who have found a fun way to supplement their income. Or pay off their loans.
