The name ether covers a whole bunch of different crap because its
actually a group of what are called organic compounds. What the drug
crowd means when they say ether is usually diethyl ether and that's
something that scientists made a long time ago as a way of putting
people to sleep during surgeries. You may have seen Hunter S Thompson
using ether in the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas too. That crazy
bastard gives a look at what that whole insane high is about.
Back in the old days alot of people used diethyl ether to get high off.
Before it started to be popular as an inhalant which means breathing
the fumes it was popular in pills for women since back in the old days
they didnt find it ladylike for women to be drinking. Breathing ether
way back when they called the Yankee Dodge. Even though its flammable
and not good for surgery any more because it makes you nauseous it is
still used to remove ticks by some people because it relaxes the tick
and it lets go of you easier. Its been used in certain cough drops too
down through the years. Also coke heads use it to make freebase cocaine
and that means its another precursor according to the United Nations.
People working with diethyl ether need to be awful careful because it
can easily become explosive and is very very flammable. In fact you
dont even have to use fire or a spark because a surface thats hot
enough will cause it to ignite itself and thereby blow you to hell real
Ethers a solvent and its used as part of the crank cooking process.
Different people use different things but they can and have used
Toluene, Xylene, Naphtha, Hexane, Petroleum Ether or Diethyl Ether.
Since there are all these different kinds of ether I'm going to cover
each one and give you an idea of what they do both good and bad. Lets
start with Xylene since alot of meth makers say they prefer that over
the other kinds.
Xylene is a liquid that smells kinda sweet and just like other ethers
is a solvent. People do inhale this crap to get high but you dont want
to go smoking a cigarette around it because Xylene is very flammable
also. They use Xylene in printing and making rubber and leather. Its
put into gasoline and jet fuel. Pesticides and paint thinners have it
in them and they use it in the process of making computer chips.
Now comes the bad news. This stuff can get into the soil and water from
leaking underground tanks and when it does that it can contaminate
humans which leads to birth defects for babies if they get Xylene in
high enough amounts through their mother. Even in low concentrations it
can cause all kinds of problems for an adult like headaches, dizziness,
confusion and feeling like you cant keep your balance. If you actually
are dumb enough to sit there breathing this crap on purpose then your
risking brain damage on top of irritation to you whole breathing system
and eventual total lung damage. Then theres the liver damage, kidney
failure and of course massive stomach problems on top of the fact that
your now more stupid than your average fence post.
Next we got Toluene thats of course a solvent that smells like paint
thinner with that sweet kind of smell that comes from the benzene in
it. They first discovered this stuff in a south american tree but now
they get it out of crude oil when they make gasoline. In the 80s they
used this stuff as a octane booster for Formula One race cars. Not only
do they use it in disinfectents, printing, rubber, glue and laquer it
also goes in to TNT which in case you havent seen any cartoons your
whole life thats another word for dynomite. Crazy thing is they use
toulene in blood experiments cause of its properties it can break open
red blood cells so of course thats not gonna be good inside a persons
body. Even tho people huff this stuff the thing is you cant pass it out
in urine or sweat so its gotta sit in the body until it metabolizes
which means its gonna mess up your cells.
Then comes Naptha and its another petro chemical which means it has to
do with gasoline and oil. They use it for all kinds of industrial stuff
like to make fuel have higher octane and gas for cooking stuff that
inst meth. Theres different kinds of naptha and theyre all not only
poisonous but easy to blow the hell up too. Its in cleaners, torches
for fuel, shoe polish, zippo lighters and of course the big one camp
fuel. Thats generally what these meth cooks use and people who make
dope out of cough syrup also use that. It'll make you dizzy and
nauseated like most things people huff and it affects the central
nervous system, liver, kidneys, eyes, lungs and skin. Naptha alone is a
carcinogen which means it causes cancer in lab rats and the thing is
its usually got other chemicals in with it because they dont really
sell the stuff pure so your bound to get other nasty side affects right
along with it FOR FREE!
Lastly we got hexane which they get from refining crude oil too. Its
used for shoe glue and restoring old furinture so you guessed it people
huff this crap too. While its not so volatile to blow up as the other
ethers it does a whole lot of body damage if you go around breathing
in. Theres the high but then nausea and headaches followed by a break
down of the nerves and for people breathing this crap for a long time
their muscles start to atrophy which means the muscle dies off and you
cant move it very well. Starts with tingling and cramps then you
basically go to hell in a handbasket courtasy of your good pal Hexane.
There you go thats what the ethers are and how they're used in the
process is to get the red color off the Sudafed pills and break it down
so the meth cooks got pure ephedrine/pseudo ephedrine. And yes they use
this stuff to cut other drugs into freebase which means what they are
doing is making them more pure than what the dealers gonna sell them as
so he can make more money DUH. That means freebase cocaine and crack
are the same damn thing with the same damn high so smoking crack is no
differnt from smoking freebase cocaine but it IS differnt from smoking
crank. Then again when you make any drug more pure you get a stronger
high but that means its also affecting your body more strong so you can
overdose alot quicker. No dealer wants his clients to OD because thats
gonna cut into the gravy train of money hes got going on so thats why
they mix in extra crap with drugs. Its all just business baby!
