Pharmaceutical amphetamines such as Dexedrine are of no comparison to good crank (meth) I don't think. But there are many qualities about pharm speed that I prefer over street meth. What I like best about pharm speed is that it is such a clean speed buzz--with no 'chemical-yuck' feeling after coming down. Its not nearly as hard on me as meth. Anyway here are a couple memorable experiences I had with pharm speed:

I found out my friend 'K' had ADHD so I asked him if he was taking any drugs for it. He said Ritalin and Dexedrine time-release capsules. I wasn't too big on Ritalin, but I knew that Dexedrine was pure pharmaceutical speed and I wanted to try it. So I trade him a pack of cigarettes for five of these capsules full of little orange and white pellets.

My friend 'D' and I have a hard time crushing these little pellets inside the capsule (they keep rolling everywhere) but we managed to get a nice pile out of those five pills . We sniff them up and BOOM! I expected a bad burn because crushed pills usually burn the hell out of my nose, but there was absolutely no burn, like the way good coke feels. The drainage surprised me too, I expected it to be nasty but it tasted like candy.

We're suddenly wide awake (we had been drunk earlier) and we decide to leave the party and walk the countryside. We brought a couple of 40-ouncers of beer with us and we walked, talked and drank beer until dawn, for about five or six hours. The temperature was below 40 and we were both wearing T-shirts. The cold air didn't bother us at all (though I did come down with a cold a couple days later)!

I didn't really experience euphoria with Dexedrine yet, just mega feel-good and incredible energy sensations. But one day at school I was elated when 'K' gave me TEN Dexedrines! So I performed the crushing ritual on a toilet tank in the bathroom and divided it into three HUGE lines (they were fatter than my thumb and about the length of the tank). Being the crazy bastard I am, I sniffed all three of them quickly, doing about 1-1/2 lines in each nostril. WHOOOOOO mama. As soon as I polished off the last of the powder, I started to tremble. At first I started to freak because I thought I had done too much. But with the first swallow, something warm and invigorating rushed through my body. The tremors went away after I smoked a cigarette and calmed down a bit. I suddenly wanted to talk to everybody. I heard the third period bell ring and I dashed out of the bathroom to meet all of my friends in the hallway. I should've looked at myself in the mirror--my friends told me that my pupils were so dilated I barely had any color left in my eyes. I also kept grinding my teeth, which I didn't even notice until someone pointed it out.

It wasn't a 'productive high'--it was more like a 'too twacked-out to concentrate' kind of high. I remember not being able to carry on a thirty-second conversation with somebody before starting up another with somebody else. But it was very fun, and the plateau lasted soooo long.

The euphoria was deep, intense, and pleasurable, even though I was a little jittery. The comedown was remarkably smooth, with no intense cravings or unpleasant mental effects. I couldn't eat or sleep for two days, and I felt like I had been hit by a bus when I finally crashed, but it was worth it--and it taught me a valuable lesson--DO NOT TAKE PHARMACEUTICALS LIGHTLY!! Although they are semi-legal, some pharms possess some wicked powers.
