Notice that the usual MDMA/amphetamine mix you can buy is usually debased
by all kinds of synthetical impurities/stretching stuff like strychnine &
Co. I think I also heard MDMA was neurotoxic, especially to substantia
nigra? I also seem to recall a horror story on a overheated designer drug
batch, which caused victims to (irreversibly) lock rigid in course of a
single day, <shudder>. Before you ask, that was not an urban legend.

While I am pretty laissez faire towards (nonopiate & analoga) drugs, you
should really know that you are taking grave risks, especially if you
accept substances, produced in an uncontrolled environment (zero
quality control, and all kinds of ad hoc improvisation). If you're aware
of that, it's o.k., but few young techno kids really are.
