    today there are all the drugs of the 60's and a few more synthetized in the meantime..."speed" was the word for methedrine or amphetamines...
    Speed was really fast in fucking one's body, starting with the brain.....speed-freaks were the worst and most violent kind of junkies.........

    They still are. Look at all the bad incidents surrounding "tweakers" and meth fiends...this is speed. Also, remember, Adolph Hitler got amphetamine vitimin injections, and they gave it to the Japanese army in WWII to make them ruthless fighting machines. Bad vibes.

    i think you're thinking of the VietCong, to my knowledge the Japanese didnt do that, or if they did they didnt do it on such a regulated basis.
    Apparently JFK was a patient of Dr. Feelgood as well as Jackie Kennedy

    Mmm, nah not the case. LSD-25 was the chemical produced by Sandoz Labs. LSD-50? Well LSD-25 was thus named as it was the 25th in the series Hoffman was synthesizing. -50 may just be the 50th in the same series.

    That or you are thinking of LD50, which is more a research term denoting the level at which 50% of test animals died (lethal dose 50%). Which for LSD-25 is 12,000ug's.

    Many armies including the US have used speed to keep their troops going.

    I do know herb is better today. Don't do anything else but brew and wine.

    There's some deal about speed having been developed by the Nazi's for their air force pilots to stay awake. I don't know what's up with the drugs nowadays. I used to love to drop about 10 white cross bennies and grind for a week. Good speed (methamphetamine hydrochloride) like glass was great. Crank (methamphetamine sulfate) sucked. In the '80's I was shooting cocaine, and I swear I would slam a 1/4 gram of speed and I'd have to listen to my heartbeat, cause nothing would happen. I always thought I'd missed. No rush or nothing. Pure crap. Oh ya, and I never had any kind of psychotic episodes or wanted to rip people off or any of the bad shit people usually attribute to speed freaks.

    Pot is definitely better now than it was back then. Of course you were only paying $65 for a brick (around a kilo but never with any consistency of weight).

    Some of the acid was great, some of it sucked. So did the capsules of mescaline or whatever the hell was really in there. You'd buy a hit of peppermint barrels and 45 minutes later there were Mexican serapes floating on the walls that were breathing. A week later you'd buy the same stuff from the same guy, and just get a light head buzz 2 hours later. Street drugs were a bit of an iffy proposition. I think that's why I liked shooting pharmaceuticals. You knew what you were doing. Demerol, Dilaudid, but especially Mallenkroft Pink Pearl pharmaceutical cocaine. Or German Merck Blue ice. Now those two, the blue and the pink were a high and a half.

    I guess after saying all that, I should probably add that I have been clean for almost 8 years now. And I think I like it this way best. But I don't regret or am ashamed of doing any of that. It was just something I did and that's all.

    Oh ya, to the original poster. He was probably talking about Black Beauties which was a pharmaceutical speed in a black and white or all black capsule. I'm not sure exactly what it was though.

    Everything was better except the pot. Was never strung out on anything (except maybe the pot), but did a lot of experimentation. Lots of great acid--orange barrel was the best I remember doing and lots of good blotter. The uppers were big then as it seemed everyone wanted to stay up all night and party. Don't know about black jrs, but the Black Beauties were the best, and there were yellow ones (I think called yellow jackets), green ones (called Christmas Trees). Don't remember many mushrooms around our area then, but the acid was super!

    OK, my recollection: The acid was strong or weak, different stuff was different. I did a lot of it. I didn't like speed, although I did it fairly often when in college for crams. For crams the christmas trees were best. I didn't like the feeling of the crystal. I also did a fair amount of the mescaline (usually chocolate) or whatever it was. The acid was better. Also did some of the early PCP. I didn't care too much for the after effects of it. Pot? Lots and lots. I don't think its a matter of it being better now so much as more of it is of the better grade now. There was some kick ass stuff back then, but the mild was more common. I did get a fair amount in the 60s and 70s that was three or four tokes and you're out, type stuff. We used to pay $10 bucks for 1oz of the Jamacian or Mexican, and we all had scales and it had to weigh an oz. Columbian was a bit more (1967-70 prices). I do miss the Afghani primo hash. That was some good shit. I'm happy to say I never used a needly, although many of my friends did and I helped then a few times. I was lucky to abandon everything besides pot before crack hit the scene or I would have been a crackhead as I did a bunch of powder. Anybody remember gorilla biscuits?

    when the Beatles did Lucy in the sky with diamonds on the Sgt. Pepper album in 1967 it was rumoured that the song title meant Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
    (LSD) because at least two of the Beatles were on it at the time.

    I thought the acid we took in the sixties was LSD 125 we used to get it in liquid form I have noticed the acid nowadays is much more controllable you can float on different levels still good fun whatever it is

    Root beer Barrel acid, yummy. Black Beauties sometimes called Black Molly's, don't plan on sitting down for awhile. White crosses were easier on the system, snorting them was intense. The Purple tab Mescaline was worth the trip but a little unpredictable on how long it would last. The best was the synthetic psilocybin, white tabs that looked too small to be 4-way, they were, I found out the hard way. I will only smoke now, todays chemicals scare the crap out of me.
