    • Purity Issues

      • In general the demand for MDMA exceeds the supply, this allows unscrupulous individuals to pass off virtually anything as “ecstasy”

      • I have had near death experiences before and this was exactly the same as the others. I existed in everything simultaneously yet I did not exist myself. I could only experience, I could not act.

      • I remember one thought going through my head continuously 'I am the biggest lunatic alive. People will charge admission to see me. My parents will feel I am a disgrace and disown me. All because I know the meaning of it all but cannot explain it.'

      • ‘My brain was in a hell, and I couldn’t get out. All I could think about was this experience ending, and that if it didn’t, I’d rather be dead.
