Ok, sounds like a strange question??? But we got talking the other night about this and I'm desperate for someone smart to explain the world of crystals to me.
So you have a crystal of a certain drug. Does this mean it is guaranteed to be a certain putirty? Does the purity fit to a certain range ie 95-100%? What's the lowest % that a crytal can be before it won't crystalize? Can a crystal be say 50% one substance, 50% another similar subtance? Can crystals be actually salts? Do they contain some kind of anion or cation added on that is just taking up space?
All these questions came up recently because there are atleast two varieties MDMA being sold in their crystal form in this area. There have been claims that one is stronger than the other. My response was - lets ask science. How much stronger can one be? Unfortunately my science on crystals was not up to the task. I studied a bit of science in high school, but that was a long time ago.
One thing I do remember is that drugs often have stereoisomers and I just discovered an interesting discussion about MDMA isomers here: http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=148356 (However my question is just about basic purity, not stereoismers.)
Hope you guys can help!
