    I think you're thinking of the funny mushrooms. Pot is a weed, it grows anywhere.

    Synthesis
    A common method of synthesis begins with L -ephedrine, which is reduced to methamphetamine using hydriodic acid and red phosphorus. Alternative approaches include using a different acid, a different catalyst, or a substituted ephedrine (eg, chloroephedrine, methylephedrine).

    The methamphetamine produced by ephedrine reduction is a lipid-soluble pure base form, which is fairly volatile and can evaporate if left exposed to room air temperature. This product is converted to the water-soluble form, methamphetamine hydrochloride (HCl) salt. Illicitly synthesized methamphetamine may be contaminated by nonstimulant organic or inorganic impurities. Poisoning from heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, or from solvents used in the synthesis process have been reported. Exposures to carcinogenic materials have been noted.Street methamphetamine may be mixed with many drugs, including cocaine. Studies show that 8-20% of street-available stimulants contain both drugs. In a report on cocaine intoxication, 7% of patients sought medical help because of concurrent use of cocaine and amphetamines.

    Making ice, the smokable form of methamphetamine, from standard quality methamphetamine HCl is essentially a purification process. Methamphetamine HCl is added slowly to water that has been heated 80-100C until a supersaturated solution is obtained. When the slurry is cooled, pure HCl salt of methamphetamine (ice) precipitates. Methamphetamine HCl, unlike cocaine HCl, is volatile and can be smoked. Other solvents, such as isopropanol, have been used in place of water to speed the process. Uncontrolled variations of this process can result in unreliable removal or addition of impurities. The physical characteristics of the final product depend on the quality and type of reagents used and on contaminants that may have been introduced. The lack of significant further processing of methamphetamine HCl has resulted in increased availability and popularity of smoking the drug.

    Are you really trying to argue that the chemicals used to synthesize meth don't result in toxic byproducts that are ingested by users?

    You know the problem with a lot of those drugs is that they can turn almost anyone into a liberal.

    Me too. Would never do it again.

    I had some friends (don't associate with them anymore) who were addicted to meth. A couple of them have cleaned up, but most are just wierded out junkies whom I can't stand to be around. I hate how they think there is something cool about addiction. Like being a loser is something to be proud and brag about.

    I was referring to lye in DMT, not an assortment of toxins in Methamphetamine.

    What does the term "dopehead" mean to you?
