A New Synthetic Drug – 2C-E?

This new synthetic drug 2C-E does not yet have many street names and although not sold at smoke shops like many other designer drugs, it is still readily available.  The drug is normally used by an under-educated demographic along with alcohol and other drugs.  This co-abusing along with very little data on effects, side-effects, long-term issues, and withdrawal dangers causes for a very volatile and often harmful situation.  Parents, family, and friends need to educate themselves as much as possible if they believe a loved one is using or addicted to synthetic  drugs.

2C-E is a psychedelic and phenethylamine that was originally synthesized by Biochemist Alexander Shulgin. It is normally swallowed, or crushed and snorted. It is normally purchased online, and can’t be found in stores or smoke shops.

What are the effects?
Some user’s claim the effects are very similar to LSD. An increased awareness of senses, such as taste, touch, smell, and especially sight has been reported. Moderate to extreme time dilation, or lack of knowledge of time passing has also been reported.

How long does it last?

It usually takes anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes to initially start feeling the effects of 2C-E, but they normally last anywhere from 4 to 9 hours. Rarely it has been report that a user has felt the effects for up to 24 hours.

Adverse Reactions

Confusion, difficulty concentrating, and/or scrambled thoughts have been reported in moderate doses of 2C-E, as well as muscle tension and aching, paranoia, fear, nausea, vomiting, increased perspiration, and increased heart rate.

Withdrawal

There have not been any reported withdrawal symptoms associated with 2C-E.  However, the drug is new and known to be dangerous and does not have a lot of research on it.

In the News

In 2011, a group of young adults aged 16-21 ordered 2C-E online and all tried it together at a spring break party. This resulted in a mass overdose, with 10 kids needing medical treatment. 2 of them were in critical condition, and one passed away due to the drug use. "We're told that amongst teens, these kind of substances are thought to be somewhat safe because they're seemingly legal," says Paul Sommer, Sheriff Commander of Anoka County. "They're far from safe."
