Q: What is ment by the term Triple stack when refering to ecstacy? Does ecstacy ever go bad if left unused for a long time?

A: As with most drug slang, there is no single precise definition for terms like this. Most commonly 'triple-stack' (or 'double-stack' or 'double-barrel') describes an ecstasy tablet which is somewhat thicker than the average tablet. Some dealers try to claim that triple-stack pills contain a higher dose of mdma (ecstasy) but that is almost certainly a marketing gimmick rather than the truth. You can also find very ordinary ecstasy tablets which are described as 'triple-stack' which are neither physically different nor stronger than the average tablet. It's pretty much all hype.
