i looked into this years ago. they were discontinued, though apparently nembutal and demerol and various -ol/al drugs have a similar effect.

was mandrax the real name of quaaludes?

Methaqualone was discovered by the Indian researcher M. L. Gujiral in 1955 during an anti-malaria research program. It was marketed as a sleeping pill during the 1960s under a number of tradenames including Renoval and Melsed and in combination with an antihistamine as Mandrax.

Did somebody say Disco Biscuits?

Some street names it has been sold as are Disco Biscuits, Down And Dirtys, Fuckers, Joe Fridays, Lemmon 714, Lemons, Lennons, Lovers, Ludes, Mandies, Mandrake, Q, qua, quaa, quack, Quad, Qualudes, Soaper, Supper, Vitamin Q, The Love Drug, Wallbangers, Whore Pills, and on and on and on...

saw a doco recently where these were mentioned! apparently there was only one factory in the world that made the active ingredient in 'ludes, and some mexican cartel tapped them up for massive amounts of it so they could make their own and export to the US. the DEA (I think?) went to the factory owners and enforced licensing of buyers of the ingredient, et violin: instant demise of 'ludes black market.

they wanted to do the same thing with the world's nine ephedrine factories to nip meth in the bud before it became such a problem, but they got pwned by BIG PHARMA.

OTM. the scourge of the 70s, along w/angeldust aka PCP or "THC". at first ludes seemed like fun when they were cheap & legal, you'd wash down a 714 w/a beer and get legless. by the late 70s it was a more elite & expensive disco drug and dudes who were like "hey I'ma get laid on these" would wind up passing out or puking. DUD.

Mandrax were the euro quaaludes, maybe they still make em there?

Not as nasty as angeldust, ludes just acquired this sleazy aura.

The worst drug I ever tried was amyl nitrate aka "poppers" your head starts POUNDING in this intense rush acc by noxious fumes. UGH.

my next-door neighbor in Ohio got suspended from HS for selling quaaludes. one of his customers swallowed half-a-dozen before gym class...had to get his stomach pumped.

re: nickalicious's Jello BIafra hquote upthread. Did Video DJs in fact always talk like they were wigged out on Quaaludes? Or did JB just not know what he was talking about? I strongly suspect the latter. What did Quaalude heads sound like anyway?
