rolling methamphetamine thread

The article makes a big deal about how much it would be worth. It's like they're jealous that the kid got such a good haul.

i visited Riverside California once, the "meth capital" of the US (might have changed by now?), yes with the intention of scoring an 8-ball (i was 19). i was hanging out with this real winner goth-punk dude, and maybe it was the parties he took me to, but it seemed like literally EVERYONE was on the stuff. and their parents, who you assume were functioning members of society because they all lived in giant posh homes, were on it too, many for 10 - 20 years - nothing less than a lifestyle. long story short i scored my 8-ball for a measely $200 and drove to Dallas and sold it all in 1 weekend for about... $1200 i think it was. and people were coming up to me the next week asking if i had any more because it was several grades higher than the shit they used to get. (this was about the last of my crazy days)

there was a neat article i read a few years ago about this new breed of much more pure and much more expensive stuff sold in the form of little angel or virgin mary statues that was becoming very popular with global party people... couldn't find anything craze may have died.

i used to prefer it to coke but last time got high was in 2001 and would not do it again. and in case any kids are reading this, what happens to most abusers is this:

Surely a 'tweaking' rather than 'rolling' thread, hur hur omg lol rofl.

Re. that 'faces of meth' thing, I remember there was one guy who ended up looking uncannily like Sideshow Bob.

Edit: my mistake, it was a woman:

There was also at least one person who was noticeably better looking after several years of heavy meth use, which probably says a lot about the Mid-West.

You can tell by the amount of makeup which two arrests were made for prostitution in that photo lineup.

"Glass" as they call it over here is way overpriced (and way better than stimulants), and so expensive in NY ($200 for a QUARTER) that only rich innercity DINKs can afford it. In rural areas they make that caustic shit that's cranky and doesn't crystalize right which is just gross, but even that goes for quite a chunk.

We used to buy a plane ticket to Phoenix for one of my college friends, then he would buy an ounce and send it to himself overnight via USPS and fly back. There wasn't much of a market for it except around finals time though. Whereas an ounce of coke would go within 3 hours if not sooner.

I don't really buy the whole "meth makes you really ugly" argument, it's more a question of being really really poor and having a drug problem (plus years of malnourishment) is what does it. Also, I would guess that the pictures where people start looking really bad are IV users rather than smokers/blowers. IV use of anything makes your skin terrible after a while.

I suppose if you smoke enough meth your gums start to rot as well. And you'll cut your hair into a homemade mullet right quick too.

Have you ever seen that "locked up abroad" show? I believe it's on the Travel Channel or something, but it seems like it's produced by a British company. Anyway, a good 90% of the cases are people who try to drag a suitcase full of something into Singapore or Bangkok or one of those scary places, most of them claim it's because they were stranded and needed a free plane ticket home or something.

It's pretty riveting.

Speed-induced bruxism (jaw-clenching) is bound to fuck your teeth up over time, too, especially if they're already weakened by bad diet and general poor hygiene.

Yeah, definitely, but I've noticed the worst lockjaw with MDMA! which is, technically, just a form of methamphetamine with a designer twist. I've been bitched at about grinding my teeth by all kinds of dentists, but one finally told me it's probably done mostly in my sleep so I'd have to wear a mouth guard to bed if I really wanted to stop this. (sexy!)

I knew people who only drank meth that they'd put in alcohol or water or something, can you even imagine what your stomach would look like after a while? I'd rather have fucked up nasal passages personally. I think smoking drugs is just disgusting, the most disgusting way to take in chemicals that there is.

ya i was thinking that too. if you took care of yourself in all other ways you can look normal for years and for some decades (as you progressively rot on the inside and lose touch with your humanity)

that tweak feeling is pretty nice though as i remember... like a calm energetic focus for me. much much better than coke which just makes me fidgety nervous and can't concentrate worth shit.

funny i'm typing this shit cuz a few hours ago i was head to toe in adidas jogging around Hakeshermarkt and finishing with a stop at the BIO (health food) shop to pick up raw milk and tomato juice because I'm on day 5 of a fast :D

Tweaking is really physically nice (without the every 30 minutes need to do more like with coke) until it wears off and it's all stuck in your aching muscles. The only way to get it out is a sauna or exercise, I've heard. Which sounds too much like work.

That Vice article was pretty spot on about rehab, especially the "laziness" section. There are tons of those people, especially in state-run rehabs! They have some wheelchair or scooter, but they're just lazy. Most of them are there with a DOC of what else, CRACK! (There are an equal number of really sad cases though like "my parents molested me every day" and "my husband was beaten to death with a baseball bat in front of me" but the lazy crackheads outnumber everyone...)

Crackheads are the worst in group therapy. They never listen. They talk really really fast. They're impatient with everyone else, yet their own stories make absolutely no sense whatsoever and are peppered with terms like "heads was real deep" "pitch that" "work it out" and guys with names like Taco. Plus, crackheads don't experience withdrawal, so they have no idea how fucking shitty everyone else feels while they're regaling people who are really suffering with stories about whose ass they're going to beat down as soon as they get out. No one ever wants a crackhead roommate. They are on the lowest rung of the rehab social ladder.

Don't even get me started on alcoholics and their pathological ability to remain in denial about their addiction to the point of absurdity. And their love of wasting everyone's time fighting with staff constantly.

was gon ask you about accuracy of that article... the journalistic integrity of Vice shines through again

there are a few inaccuracies

-opiate withdrawal lasts much longer than 5 days, esp heroin and methadone
-the first wd symptom is usually sneezing not yawning
-you can kick opiate blockers off your receptors, you just need good dope
-you can also shoot or snort methadone easily (just not the dissolve in water type)

But the rest is hilarious. I wish he'd talked about how most group therapy devolves eventually into an "have you ever tried this?" session where everyone reminisces

You don't say, I used to get through five packets of Wrigley's Extra in a night. Still, not as bad as this one guy I met who'd been doing pills since he was 13 and his jaw muscles were so huge they'd changed the shape of his face, you could actually feel them through his skin like he had a jawbreaker lodged in each cheek. :eek:

Yeah I've heard of people getting surgery for it, though I've never seen it that bad damn
