Preface

Congratulations. You have just purchased the most complete and informative book on recreational drug manufacture available. It is based upon a great deal of experience and a tremendous amount of research. I have used easy to understand terms to aid in comprehension of the formulas given and in the theory involved. I have patterned this book after what would appear to be a college textbook or a college accredited correspondence course in illicit drug manufacturing. Please follow carefully my instructions and advice on safety, purification, and referred to reading.

If you have any questions about even seemingly trivial details, then ask someone that knows. Call a college professor, an analytical laboratory, or one of the chemical consulting firms that exist in metropolitan areas. Aldrich Chemical Co. has a toll free number (1-800-558-9160) that enables you to ask the chemist on duty questions concerning what you may need to order from them and what cheaper analogs you may be able to substitute in the formula that you are interested in. Something that may appear to be insignificant may turn out to be the difference between completing or failing a formula and this chemist on duty gets paid to answer any questions you may have. Do not be afraid to ask them (many other chemical suppliers have this type of service also), but do not be a total idiot in doing this. Use common sense, read up on your subject thoroughly and then you will sound like a legitimate operation, not a clandestine drug lab. You will also be able to understand this person instead of having his educated talk go in one ear and out the other. Try not to let them realize what you're making, if possible, find another use for the chemicals or reaction that is not illegal and tell them that is what you're doing. Never give a real name or address, if possible.

Always put safety and caution before time, ease, and expense. If these formulas can be carried out by taking short cuts or by using cheaper reagents, then the scientists who invent them will explain how to do them this way. I have a total hatred towards underground chemists who rush out impure, improperly made drugs with unclean, half-assed equipment. These people are not chemists at all and deserve to go to prison. If I heard of someone running this type of operation I would turn them into the police personally. They take the fun out of recreational drugs and replace it with danger. I do not intend this book to be used for making drugs, but maybe the chemists who are producing drugs will use this material to make better, healthier drugs.

Most drugs are made from or with highly toxic or poisonous chemicals, if used improperly they can cause disease, cancer, or immediate death. Even the most simple of chemical reactions are not to be taken lightly or unprofessionally. Go to a college or some other type of professional laboratory and ask if they will show you around; seven times out of ten they will give you a tour. Look over their equipment; notice the cleanliness of even the floor. Look at the chemists themselves; see how serious and professional they act. This is how your laboratory should look.

As I said above, I do not want to have this book used for the illicit manufacture of drugs, but if you are going to, or have been making drugs, then I have accomplished everything if I have taught you how to make them right. Many analogs of some drugs can be legal to produce, but this does not mean that you can skimp on purification or other important operations described in the formulas. I do not approve of "kitchen crank" or other high speed, slipshod operations. This is how drugs get much of their bad reputation. If drugs were not illegal, we could buy them from major pharmaceutical manufacturers and eliminate much of the bad dope that is being abused today. Unfortunately, we have given up many of our rights over the years, due to ignorant, hypocritical assholes in positions of power, and we are forced to make these drugs ourselves. So we must act as though we are the major pharmaceutical manufacturers and we need to force ourselves to abide by the same rigid rules that the Food and Drug Administration imposes upon them. Besides, the recreational drug abusers are paying good money, they deserve good drugs, after all they're only trying to have a good time.

Laboratories, like any other investment, require a certain amount of capital to start and operate. Spend the necessary cash to buy the proper equipment to do the procedures required. Faulty equipment (not to mention insufficient knowledge) can cause fires, explosions, asphyxiation, and many other hazards. You can have one hell of a nice laboratory for the price of a funeral these days. Also hospitals are in excess of $150 a day if you are not in intensive care or requiring special services. $150 a day can operate even the most elaborate of laboratories. Therefore, if you have to beg, borrow, or steal to obtain a functional laboratory, then do so. Is three to five thousand dollars too much to spend on a lab that can easily produce a quarter of a million dollars worth of THC every week? It takes money to make money, but very few, if any, investments can pay off as well as an underground laboratory run by competent chemists.

Although this book is written in easy to understand language and the formulas have been greatly simplified, they should not be attempted by the chemically incompetent. The chemically incompetent are those who never took, passed or remember freshman college level chemistry. I suppose that if you were an A student in high school chemistry, you may be smart enough to understand what you're doing with these formulas. If you do not fall into these categories, then stop reading this book right now. You have no business in an organic laboratory.

Most of the organic compounds listed in this book are highly flammable and have irritating, toxic, and/or poisonous vapors. Many of the reactions in the following formulas are potentially violent and if performed improperly will become violent. If people understand why atoms and molecules behave the way they do under all conditions, they will know how much reagents to use, how fast to add the reagents, what kinds of poisonous byproducts may be formed and what dangers are involved. It is not enough for me to tell you that heating this and that, then reducing it makes a drug. This is unprofessional and dangerous. I want you to understand why you do what is required of you to complete a given formula, and a basic knowledge of chemistry is a definite prerequisite. If you forgot, or never knew the meaning of enthalopy, chemical bonding (ionic, polar, non-polar, bond energies), elemental and molecular properties, proton donating, dynamic equilibrium, entropy, reaction mechanism, orbital, phase, redox, pH, photon, rate of reaction, atomic mass, reduction, etc., etc., then you must put down this book and read one or more of the following references until you completely understand what is going on while you are performing these or any other formulas or reactions:

NEW ORGANIC CHEMISTR Y, by H.L. Keys PRACTICAL ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, by Vogel

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, by Butler & Berlin

PRINCIPLES OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, by Geissman

C.R.C. HANDBOOK OF LABORATORY SAFETY

BASIC PRINCIPLES OF ORGANIC CHEMISTR Y, by Roberts & Caserio

PRINCIPLES OF MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY, by Foye

This is a short list. Hundreds of good chemistry books are available at any library or book store. It should only take a week or two to read and the importance of this cannot be overstressed. Try to find one that has questions at the end of each chapter, so you can see if you can answer the questions. If you can, great, go on to the next chapter; if not, read it again, Reading is nothing without understanding.

These books will teach you how to solve and balance chemical equations, find molecular weights, how to double or triple the scale of your formula (multiplying the given formula by two or three rarely works as rates of reaction and dynamic equilibrium change much more differently as the mass of reagents and precursors are increased) and other necessary information. I would like to have included this information but it would take several decades to do so and the finished book would be longer than four holy bibles combined. With so many good chemistry books available, it would be impractical for me to- do this.

Most of you will not heed my advice to read some chemistry literature until after you waste $800 worth of chemicals on one small mistake or maybe it will take a laboratory explosion to explain how important some simple chemistry book can be.
