    This is proof positive that prohibition doesn't work. Since most of us are forced to deal with it, we must continue to assist safe usage and provide education so that these emergency room visits don't occur in the first place. Prevention is the best medicine, especially when dealing with scantily-researched compounds where we are effectively the Phase 2 trial subjects. The only difference is that this trial is taking place in our bedrooms and basements. BE SAFE and KNOW at very least the name and the amount of the compound you're consuming. Also make sure someone else knows so that they can write it on your hand in permanent marker when they drop you off at the hospital for treatment.
    If you don't know, PLEASE ask. This is a harm reduction site!
    If I've helped you in some way, please don't forget "rep points" and "thanks"
    PLUR!
