A swarm of people readily scan the web for legal ‘unspecified drugs’. It’s an initiative to exclude and marginalize the dealer. People are getting in to direct contact with vendors. It’s reputedly the safest way, as it subtracts the miscellaneous aggressions of the dealer and consolidates your knowledge of what you’re actually consuming. The middle man is scratched out from all transactions.
I was talking to a friend who told me he’s familiar with this online outlet of drugs. He assured me that he didn’t dare gallop into the molested, bruised part of the web which campaigned illegal highs. He adroitly and shrewdly searched ‘research chemicals’, where a series of websites guaranteed validation of drugs. His aim was to find an analogue version to LSD. He stumbled upon 1P-LSD, exactly what he bargained for, and purchased it. Within three days the drug was delivered to his door.
1P-LSD is a psychedelic introduced in 2015 by research Chemical Providers. 1P-LSD is used as an alternative to LSD. The propionyl group which makes up 1P-LSD is lost during metabolism and leaves you with LSD. So in effect you are consuming LSD, the drugs are indistinguishable. All the effects experienced using 1P-LSD are derived from LSD. The effects start to dissipate between 8-10 hours which is an identical episode of LSD.
The deliverance of the goods is bizarre. Why is there nothing impeding these drugs from crossing our borders? My source also told me that the website he was using was European. One can only speculate, was that just in placed to curtail suspicion? How did it even bypass security? My friend told me that the drug was sealed in generic packaging and had no inscription. The drug was packaged discreetly, so you could not judge who it came from or what could be inside. Should we implement more secure means to monitor mail? Thousands seem to elude these restrictions daily. How do they do this? Well, it’s not in our legislation to ban it accordingly, so it’s shipped away to whoever ordered it.
It’s unusual that Ireland has not adopted Britain’s reprimand for all psychoactive substances. Britain’s Psychoactive Substance Bill was introduced in 2015, to ban all psychoactive drugs irrespective of its current existence.
Ireland must re-examine its Misuse of drugs act. Many people are abusing this easy access route to adulterated illicit drugs, that don’t trigger a breach in law. People convicted with minor offences, like possession of weed, are downtrodden. Visas are with-held from them and even job opportunities. So, why is it that people taking a class C drug are reproved severely and people taking a class A drug, such as 1P-LSD, can do so with no penalty applied?
These synthetic drugs are dangerous, with this drug being relatively new, little research cannot determine its long-term effects. Something must be done!
