Worse than ‘ice’ hits the streets?

By sunshine - 23 October 2008 90

Anyone heard of the latest drug doing the rounds in Canberra that apparently is worse than ‘ice’ and makes people more aggressive than those using ice?

Scary stuff.

What’s Your opinion?

I swear I don’t make so many typos in my job, only on here…

Salvia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvia_divinorum

But for anyone thinking about experimenting, go read Erowid first, or find a friendly medical student willing to be your sitter.

And from the effects it sounds like Ketamine. Or a Ketamine by-product such as angel dust / PCP.

Ice combined with salvia is apparently and astonishingly bizarre experience and has a worse psychosis, while stille being just as addictive as ice (suprise!).

Not that I know personally, though.

Until something like this has a name, i would say that this is all hearsay and conjecture. If something like this was new and hitting the streets we would have heard about it already as it would have hit Sydney or Melbourne. I would be inclined to say that this is possibly a strange batch of home made ice maybe?

A recent study in the UK ranks alcohol as the 5th worst drug when it comes to personal harm, harm to society and addictiveness. Herion being number 1 and extacy being number 17.

Who gives a crap about ice, acohol is the real issue!

ummm, the people who have to clean up after those on ice and deal with their psychosis give a crap about ice.
yes alcohol is a problem but at least you can effectively work with a person who is drunk but when on ice – forget it!

either circumstance has its own particular risks associated with it – alcoholics can resort to theft, assault and abuse to obtain their next “hit” – i know, I was associated with people who would beat each other up for one last drink. The facility was supposed to be “dry” but there was alcohol and drugs there, and a hell of a lot of very scary people. Ainslie village. what a mistake.

Alcoholics aren’t nice people. letting your personal hygiene slip – why buy a cake of soap when you could be at the pub having a beer? or eating mouldy food – alcohol becomes the “food” of choice, and trying to prevent an alcoholic from a drink is a recipe for violence.

I don’t know the name of this new drug, but a friend of mine has recently told me that the “thin line” between stoned and dead is very much closer for this one. The psychosis that is experienced by an Ice user apparently is a walk in the park compared to the side effects of the new drug, self harm and harming others is extremely likely – he also mentioned that if you encounter someone suffering from the side effects, and can do so, get away from them very quickly. by all means, phone the police, keep an eye on them from a safe distance, but be prepared to see some horror behaviour, I hope that this one gets off our streets quickly, but that never seems to happen.

Vanilla ice, perhaps?

Piratemonkey. Interesting study. Alcohol and tobacco even when looked at seperately cost more than any illegal drug – perhaps because they are legal and easy to get though. Heroin – interesting. ‘Normal’ heroin use (ie not ODing) doesn’t kill you – you could quite easily live your days out as a junkie if you didnd’t have to steal for your next fix. Who takes heroin these days any more though? Its so last century….this new mystery drug is where its at.

Sunshine, where have you heard this?
