Smiles Drug


Latest news:

September 27, 2013:Bath Salts and the new drug Krokodil (which eats off your skin) still beat out Smiles for PR. So as it turns out, actor Johnny Lewis was not on drugs when he went on his rampage, and no evidence of the Smiles drug was found. We are waiting patiently for every news outlet to apologize for the hysteria associated with this tragedy and their lightning fast attempt to blame it on a substance which you still probably shouldn't try.
News story on Smiles (2C-I) includes references to YouTube and other media.


More info:

A drug like Smiles might have very difficult standards for testing, treatment, and detection. Primarily, the makeup of the drug is entirely dependent on the lab that created it, and the dosage may be very high or nonexistant. Testing has to be based on the actual molecular makeup of the drug, so toxicology results may not show the presence of Smiles or 2C-I analogues. Drug treatment can be difficult because the drug affects different people in different ways. Aside from traditional aversion therapies, and counseling for those with addictive personalities, it may be hard to create a residential or outpatient treatment plan for Smiles use.

Smiles Drug - Treatment and Detection Options

Head shops and Bath Salts channels have new drug that is legal, for now. Residential and outpatient treatment programs still researching drug effects in order to create strategy for rehab programs.

A new designer drug known as "Smiles" or "2C-I" has become a trend among teenagers who are featuring themselves on YouTube videos using the drugs. This drug, simliar to Bath Salts and Spice, has unusual and unpredictable effects. In one case a user killed himself by ramming his body into trees and phone poles under the influence of a derivative of 2C-I. The psychological effects of this drug also appear to involve powerful hallucinations, which means that the drug is a danger to the driving population since someone under its influence presumably could not tell whether he or she is seeing the right traffic signal, or even driving on the right side of the road, or is on the road at all. Smiles overdoses are becoming more common nationwide. The effects, which are said to be similar to a mix of ecstacy and LSD, but with a longer high, reportedly have a higher potency than either drug. Naturally, if you are a teenager, and hope to get your money's worth, this sounds like a good deal, but can present a problem if visual and auditory hallucinations last a number of days!

Smiles Drug

A common factor in the use of designer drugs is that Smiles is currently invisible to drug tests which have recently been updated to discover Bath Salts (MDPV) and other new substances. This means that students who have to do drug testing for athletics, and soldiers in the military, will gravitate toward a drug like 2C-I in order to have a good time and still pass drug tests. Furthermore, because the potency of these drugs is totally unknown from one batch to another, and you really don't know what kind of substance you are getting when you buy vials of a powder marked "not for human consumption," there is the danger of overdose even when you use less of the drug from a previous batch. Also, someone might be cutting the drug with other poisons and freak out drugs that you don't know about, especially if they can make more batches with a similar substance. Part of the problem with designer drugs sold at head shops is that they aren't returnable, and the brand equity in a name like "Smiles" is distributed among a bunch of manufacturers, so just like Forrest Gump said, "You never know what you're going to get." Now go forth and fry your brains so I have less competition in the skilled labor pool.

Notes and Special Information

Special note: At what point do we start encouraging people to stick to the pricey illegal drugs while avoiding the cheap highs that can be bought at head shops? Perhaps the next PSA on drugs should show parents buying "real" drugs for their children with the message "Support Old School Hallucinogens, and Just Say No to Designer Drugs."
