I just did an article on scorpion smoking in Afghanistan (link below). If anybody on here has done it, I would love to hear about it either below or tete-a-tete. What say you, @thomaschong?

@thomaschong, Interesting. Any particular chemical in scorpion that is dangerous? I can’t wait to hear the results.

Your friend seems remarkably adept at synthesizing these chemicals. How advanced is his chemistry training or is he self-taught?

I appreciate your response, Senor Chong.

@rob9, He is 74 years old, and has been a chemist since he was 17, we’ve been great friends for a huge amount of time, and he told me that the harmful chemical is NER-0-H, which would cause brain damage, its a part of the poison. He’s giving me 100 mgs to smoke, they’ll be done by three AM, so I’ll go to his house and use his spare key to grab it from his lab.

@thomaschong, I can’t even find the species of scorpion – what is the active chemical?

@ijesuschrist, @thomaschong, yes, please tell me what chemical he is going to give you. Was he familiar with scorpion venom already? How did he know what chemical in it causes hallucinations? It seems pretty complex according to this journal article:

@rob9, most toxins in scorpions are large molecules that disrupt cell membranes, causing cation exchange to the surrounding medium. This is what causes intense pain and muscle spasms.

Hallucinatory compounds are usually structurally VERY different.

@rob9, See, scorpion poison has NER-0-H in it, which is very very bad, but it also has a Tryptamine known as alpha-MT, or TRYPTAMINE, ALPHA-METHYL; INDOLE, 3-(2-AMINOPROPYL); ALPHA-METHYLTRYPTAMINE; 3-(2-AMINOPROPYL)INDOLE; IT-290; 3-IT for sciency dudes, I’m going to try it tonight, I’ll write a report later this week, he knew about it after calling a few of his friends, his first batch went bad, some strange reaction.

Man what is with people trying so many different kinds of drugs? Why not stick to the ones that have the least complications and arguably the best ones (Marijuana and Mushrooms)?

Start meditating if you want something else.

No offense to anyone, by all means do you what you want and that makes you happy, but I mean come on lol.

@blankey, they are in afghanistan, they don’t have no shrooms!

I thought alpha-methyl tryptamine was only mildly active.

@rob9, I knew an Afghani who had, but he said they mixed it with hashish.

@epath, did he say how widespread the usage was? Are you still contact with this person?

@rob9, It wasn’t that widespread I don’t think. I am not, alas, still in contact with this person. He was very cool. Imprisoned and tortured by Russians; escaped prison and shot in leg; got to U.S. and worked as a farm hand in western U.S. until he went to university.
