    " cocaine paste, gasoline, kerosene and quicklime (calcium oxide)"

    Christ sake man haha.
    I'd be more concerned about the kerosene. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that aeroplane fuel? :lolwut:

    and gasoline is car fuel, why is paraffin more scary?

    Because it fuels a bigger engine

    isnt that a form or morphine?
    Yep, it's the chemical name for Krocodil. The destructive nature of krocodil really comes from it's synthesis when users end up with impurities because they aren't cooking it properly. Read somewhere that the average life expectancy of a user is 2/3 years D:

    Its kinda funny. In my eyes Pharmaceutical amphetamines are relatively safe for use if careful.
    Base amphetamine is a greater danger but at the same time I know some who can cope fine using it. But crystal meth. It’s just on another level.
    To think that the difference of a methyl group changes the effects of the dug so strongly…

    As for “is it prevalent in the UK” I would say no. It seems meth is most common in America and China (Jabba). EU is more known for “base”.

    I know that methamphetamine is quite commonly found in the U.S., but I was wondering whether anyone knew how prevalent it was in Britain? It seems to be the scourge of the drug world, from what I've seen. The creme de la creme of addictive destructiveness. And yet many people seem to be unaware of its existence. Anyone on TSR had experience with it?
    Meth is *very* uncommon in London, with just a few pockets of use and a few different underground scenes that can access it.

    It's quite common in a certain gay scene in London; they smoke crystal methamphetamine, and hook up with another guy (or more than one). It tends to attract all sorts, from civil servants to porn actors.

    Why do they take it? The sex is amazing, quite simply. They end up rutting like animals for hours and hours.

    They don't tend to be "tweakers" in the American sense though; mostly weekend warriors. They're probably more at risk of an HIV infection than the kind of "before and after" effects you see for American meth addicts.
