  1. There are junkies in Czech soooooo adicted to pervitin they don't even need that… bit of salt in syringe satisfies their needs… super strong placebo efect

  2. I dont think the video appreciates the drastic differences in function between minute changes of chemical structure of medicine. Aderol and methamphetamine are no where near similar. Take codiene and morphine. A weak pain killer vs the most powerful opioid invented yet. The difference between them? One carbon group…

  3. No benzo? Me lob benzo. My little pill even has a smiley face etched on it (not kidding)

  4. You are not a doctor and you can't be spreading this misinformation… people's doctors know better than you… you basically are making statements without any backing to make people distrust their doctors

  5. Drugs are drugs, every drug is just a chemical changing certain things in your body to ail something else, what drugs we consider dangerous is arbitrary

  6. Not going to discuss morphine or fentanyl? Some street drugs ARE prescription drugs, just manufactured illegally, and often used at much higher dosages. Then you also have some pretty extreme drugs designed for testing in laboratory settings, but not uncommonly you will find people willing to use various channels to get some of those drugs on the streets to make good money.

  7. Acid, dmt, weed, psilocybin mushrooms, ect. Are all safer than prescription drugs. When illegal drugs are safer than the ones doctors prescribe you know there's a problem. Most of the drugs I just mentioned are even good for your mental health. These drugs also open your mind more

  8. Love the kid spray-painting "READING SUCKS" and then hiding from Adam.

  9. Adderal is an amphetamine but it isn't a methamphetamine. That extra methyl group can make a big difference.

  10. This video is an oversimplification and risks making outlandish statements that are half truths as the whole story. Yes we have a lot of dangerous prescriptions and we as Americans are in danger of being advertised unsafe drugs that are perfectly legal, but simply because a drug is in the same class as another drug does not make them identical in their bonding strength or toxicity. Individual compounds can act differently even if they are similar to compounds in their group. Functional groups, chiral carbons, compound weight are all factors to consider before just shoehorning every as being a drug so it’s bad or like this video tries to claim being the same group so bad.

  11. Dont for get vivance witch has the same chemical composition and almost the exact same structure as CRYSTAL METH and I have been prescribed it for adhd since I was 6
    And then there Xanax

  12. Lollll
    I would imagine that's why they made speed another form of amphetamine out of sudafed….

  13. the medicine my mom takes for arthritis can literally cause liver failure (she has to take monthly blood tests to make sure she's healthy)

  14. Percocet mild Percocet , Percocet mild Percocet mask off frick it mask on

  15. Illegal one, you are careful. Legal one, you just finish the whole bottle.
