Ecstasy Amphetamines

The reasons Strike wrote this book. The reasons you're reading this book. Ecstasy is the most benign drug Strike has ever encountered. It is passive yet powerful. By powerful Strike does not mean that it incapacitates or makes one dangerous. It is, in fact, quite the opposite. Its power is in its ability to evoke a total sensory bath of tactile, visual and mental enhancement. One's perception is perfectly clear. Hallucinations are nonexistent. The feeling one has is, literally, ecstasy. Plus, it is one of the few narcotics in the world that is not physically addictive. Why this substance was taken away from the people is a question that only government-funded scientists can answer.

And let's not forget Meth (speed, crank, crystal). Then again...why don't we just forget about them. Momma said if you can't say anything nice...etc., etc.

The ecstasy molecule itself is just an amphetamine with a couple of extra things attached to it. The chemical structures of the major ecstasy class drugs and speed class drugs can be seen in the preceding schematic:

MDA and its brother, amphetamine, are the easiest to make, involve the least watched chemicals and are the strongest. MDMA and speed, although less strong and shorter lasting, are perceived by many as 'better' because the highs they produce are smoother and more pleasant. This is not necessarily true as the degrees of differences between MDA and MDMA or amphetamine and speed are very subjective. They are equally fine in their effect except that MDA is better. The sooner the chemist accepts this, the easier her journey through underground synthesis will be in many respects. So, when Strike uses the blanket term of 'ecstasy' or 'X' throughout this book Strike may be referring to either MDA or MDMA (mostly MDA). Strike will let you know when a specific difference is required. Anyway, if one were to look at that nitrogen atom stuck on the MDA or amphetamine core one can see that as more carbon groups are added on, the weaker the drug becomes. So MDEA and PEA are even weaker than MDMA and speed, but they do retain some pretty fair activity. And a few pages away you are going to actually learn every excruciating detail of how underground chemists make every single one of these compounds!
