arem't those like caffiene tablets or something?Electro Funk said:mmmmm. truckers speed... i used to love those white crosses back in the day... you could get them at any convience store. marketed to asthmatecs
i would eat 10 or 15 of those and drink a 12 pack.... hair tingling and all!
the good ole' days....
One of the core ingredients of crytal meth in fact - the main reason cold medication with pseudoephedrine is behind the pharmacy counter in most states now. In Chicago-land they look at your state ID, write down the license number and make you sign a waiver before selling you anything like sudafed.Electro Funk said:NOOOOOO....
psuedoephedrine or ephedrine ..... MUCH MUCH Different!
I'm pretty sure there are still Ephedrine-based diet products available on the internet. I doubt those sketchy diet companies require a photo ID.inlimbo said:damn you older guys had it good. Us youngens can't get our hands on anything like that (ephedrine) legally. The joys of the good old days eh?
They can't import that drink here in Australia because the caffeine levels were above acceptable levels.
An upper with a downer ... yeah, GREAT idea!abc news.com said:
