Wait. One million sales per weekend in the UK alone, and you are telling me sales are not rampant?
Well I think there are a quarter of a million people who go clubbing each weekend. And then there are people who do it at home, down the pub, in parties etc. etc. Okay so it's fairly rampant in one sense - the UK takes more ecstacy per head than any other country in the world. Actually we're either only just behind the US or ahead of the US overall in drug consumption per capita.
I have friends who are into it, they go there and then find a dealer. They don't even have to worry about not finding a dealer, they know they will find it. Sounds open and rampant to me.
It's not that open though in most clubs. Some clubs it's next to impossible to find anything, in others it's a piece of piss. It all depends on the club. Bare in mind that in America there isn't a club scene as such, it's more underground parties where they don't have to worry about licenses and stuff.
Oh, and I would imagine taking any halugenogenic drug would make Ishtar, not to mention music, more entertaining.
Yes, but if you're not having a good time to start with they won't help. They're not "magic happy pills".
Last I checked, most people dont buy their E from a pharmacist. From what I have heard, you don't always get MDMA, but sometimes MDMA cocktails with other drugs.
Yup, usually amphetamine or MDEA. You do find other stuff though.
About 8 years ago, I was talking to some people who had E and told me their pills had coke and other fun things in it.
You won't find coke in a pill - it's more expensive than ecstacy. Why would a dealer lose out on money that way? Answer - they won't. If it's cut, it's cut with something the same price or cheaper.
They were doing and dealing stuff, and I am not implying they are reliable, but knowing stuff on the street, it is usually not pure or 100% real.
Being so close to their point of origin (Holland and Belgium) the quality is usually pretty good here. The stuff I've been getting recently has uniformly been of an extremely high quality, definitely containing very good quantities of MDMA (100mg+).
My point of posting was that there is hardly any procecution going on. You said it yourself, one million sales a weekend in the UK. This is not even in inner city/high-crime/drug infested areas that you expect sales to flourish. These sales/use are in specific areas to specific people. If people were getting busted at every rave, don't you think use would begin to decline? It seems like the police are not even concerned with the problem.
So they raid all of the several hundred clubs around London then? Each of which is dark and crowded, and as soon as the police arrive a) the dealers stash their stuff (or in some clubs, get let out the back by the bouncers) and everyone else hides whatever they've got on them. And you couldn't really arrest 250,000+ people, or even try to. I'd say in London alone there are 100,000 people clubbing each weekend (less than 1% of the city's population, quite reasonable I'd say). The Metropoliton Police has far better things to do with their time.
