    In the last decade, the use of research chemicals a recreational drugs has been on the rise.

    Reason for this is the lower price if compared with buying street drugs, and the facility to get them from online grey marketplaces.

    Research chemicals can be considered underdeveloped medications since their formulation is similar to already approved pharmaceutical products, but aren't tested enough being still under study, and therefore the use of these chemicals are merely experimental, what increase dramatically the risk of suffering undesirable effects in the pyschonaut wanting to give them a go.

    All of these research chemical are synthetic designer drugs and include the nowadays popular Flakka, but also Ethylphenidate, BK-2CB, Methiopropamine, 4-MEC, Methoxetamine, Diphenidine, 2-Aminoindane, Synthacaine, Methoxphenidine. 5-EAPB, NM2AI, Nitracaine, and many other.

    Do you know someone doing research drugs? Do you think such person is aware to be playing a kind of Russian roulette with his/her health by using them?

    So I looked a little more into this topic (random googling), and found out that this drug Flakka has been abused quite a lot nowadays. The worst part is the after effects - people start screaming, and they go into a naked rage. In case you are wondering why they go naked, its because the drug shoots the body temperature to about 106°!

    This is clearly suicide, I don't know why people are trying to play with their lives.

    Incredible they may still survive after having such a temperature rise when going slightly up during flu and other regular conditions with fever episodes already compromise one's life.

    But that's it! Being experimental chemicals, there is not guarantee to get high but to get death even if they don't overdose, and the worst part of this is playing an unnecessary guinea pigs role, because all of these reactions are recorded by psychonauts sharing experiences, but not necessarily contribute with laboratory test research.
