Everyone of us has experienced a time where we have brought up MDMA to someone uneducated and watched their reaction. The reaction like you just told them you are thinking about putting a gun to your head. We all know how pointless it is to try and justify as well. I say this because this story really won't work for those people. For all you though, check this out.
Now i first must say, i agree driving under the influence of anything IS stupid. but we all make stupid choices and decisions, and i KNOW many of you have driven on pills. So please don't leave those comments. I understand and agree.
Summer of 06, a friend and I drop some good clean MDMA beans. I don't really know where i was going, just enjoying myself driving around. I got onto the highway, from exit 32, headed for exit 33 which is about 3 miles or so. I am in the middle lane doing around 75, a few cars ahead, and a few behind.
In the blink of an eye i see and hear a car rip past me in the fast lane. this car was going so fast that even though on first instinct i knew the car was a purple scion tc, i really had to ask myself. this car had to be doing at least 140mph. he was already two bus lengths ahead within a second. at that point is where i asked myself was that a scion? ahead he continued at the same rate of speed approaching a few cars ahead. I quickly thought to myself, wow this dudes going to crash. sure enough this old van in the fast lane see's him coming, decides to blinker to the middle lane at the same time he attempts to merge and pass, both cars quickly pull back to the right lane and for at least 10 seconds me and 5-10 other cars watch in horror as the scion spins and spins and spins covering almost 1/4 mile of highway. somehow the highway seemed to play pong with the car, shooting him all the way to the slow lane, and then back to the fast, and so fourth. eventually he spun all the way into the median where he stopped facing the other direction.
it was a very eerie feeling as many of you know to watch this happen. time slowed down, and you could hear the tires and the screaming of the passengers (his windows were down).
i immediately pulled to the side of the road, where the van they hit was now in the slow lane moving at at least 5 mph while the passenger was tying to get out lol. it was a van full of Rastafarian people. i asked if they were ok and the lady said nooo. meanwhile my friend is shouting NO, NO, NO GOOO, please get of here man, please this isn't good we shouldn't stop man. I laughed and said dude, we just found something to do, don't freak out, i am not the one that just crashed my car doing 140 mph and almost killed a lot of people.
i called the police, told them the mile marker, got out and started talking to the guy who was behind me who also pulled over in complete awe of what we just saw. the driver is INCREDIBLY lucky he did not flip. he had 4 passengers, including an underage girl.
my friend, still bugging the fuck out, keeps telling me ok man we called the cops lets go, as i stepped out of the car LOL. I walked straight up the cop, pupils the size of a full moon and said, "officer i just want to tell you that that guy was FLYING"
it took almost 10 minutes to get the rasta's in the van to understand we were telling them to pull onto the side of the highway. the whole back of the van was split into a v, being an old van i cant imagine the impact of that car since i assume after laying on the brakes he had to still be doing at least 100 on impact, while also cutting the wheel causing him to spin. im sure if it was head on he would have killed everyone because that van was packed to the max.
eventually the cop comes up, takes my info and tells me i am good to go. My friend finally calms the fuck down and we start talking about what the fuck we just saw. especially being on MDMA. man I've never felt such a deep feeling of despair as i watched 4 people's life's possibly about to come to an end.
about a week later the cop called me and came and met me at my job. very friendly state trooper. as i walked up to his cruiser he's like "whats up dude" lol. he took my statement and i asked what happened. he said the guy was 25, drunk and had 3 other people with him one an underage girl. he listed the incredible amount of charges on this dude and went over my statement with me and we parted ways.
again, i am not justifying driving on e, but seriously...tell me again why mdma is so frowned upon while everyone decides its ok to get smashed and still drive. many don't drive, but we all know once we're drunk you whole outlook on getting in a car drunk is no big deal. I don't remember the last time I did 140 balls out with 3 people in my car while on ecstasy.
its hard to justify because i was too on a drug, but like i said to my friend, I am not the one who just crashed my car doing 140 and almost killed people. hell it could have been me he hit. it was less then 1/4 mile between me and where he lost control.
talk about irony
