What is "A2"?
Q: I've seen the drug "A-2" a few times with somewhat different descriptions. Know anything about it? Is it anything like MDMA?

A: A2 is benzylpiperazine. It is being marketed (somewhat deceptively) by some European companies as an MDMA replacement, but is not much like MDMA. It is primarily a stimulant similar to a mild amphetamine. Many people report unpleasant side effects such as headaches and hangovers which can last several days. It is not chemically related to either MDMA or other stimulants. For a bit more information, visit our Piperazines Vault.
