What I can’t understand is the journos asking various people about using Peptides etc. They are already using Peptids aren’t they? Peptides are legal. Only a certain few are against the code. It annoys me that Journos are just blanketing the “peptide” word everywhere and perpetuating a snowball of mis-understanding about the chemistry and what is legal now and what isn’t. When they shove a microphone in someones face, it would be nice to have someone with a bit of knowledge asking the questions as well.
The majority of chemical suppliers sold research chemicals in bulk form as powder, not as pills, as selling in pill form would invalidate the claims that they were being sold for non-consumptive research. Active dosages vary widely from substance to substance, ranging from micrograms to hundreds of milligrams, but while it is critical for the end user to weigh doses with a precision scale, instead of guessing ("eyeballing"), many users did not do this and this led to many emergency room visits and several deaths, which were a prominent factor leading to the emergency scheduling of several substances and eventually Operation Web Tryp. Some compounds such as 2C-B and 5-Meo-DiPT did eventually increase in popularity to the point that they were sold in pill form to reach a wider market, and acquired popular street names ("Nexus" and "Foxy," respectively). Once a chemical reaches this kind of popularity, it is usually just a matter of time before it is added to the list of scheduled (., illegal) drugs.
