Legally High

Yesterday I met my friend TJ in Camden as she was on a mission to buy something called ‘Black Mamba’ for her friend who’s doing time in prison – Black Mamba (spice) is a ‘legal high’ and therefore won’t show up in any drugs tests that he is subject to. We picked a shop and the guy showed us what the options were in terms of strength – he said that it was stronger than weed. She bought a load of it in little 3g sachets (no cheaper than good skunk) and we went off to find a café to give it a try.

We ordered our bacon sandwiches and sat outside and smoked a tiny little spliff of Black Mamba. Within about five minutes we got the giggles really badly, totally uncontrolable and involuntary laughter which hurt. I’d just taken the first bite of my sandwich when the laughing attack happened and it was all I could do to hold it in my mouth and not choke. We looked at each other in disbelief and agreed that we hadn’t laughed like that in ages. ‘Shit,’ I said, ‘I’m going to buy a bag of that and mix it in with my weed!’ but after that we sat there, unable to eat, our throats locked and our stomachs in a knot.

The next ten minutes were ever so strange, TJ said that everyone’s faces were distorted and when I looked up to check, I saw an extremely tall black guy whose eyes were crossed upwards (the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen) and we broke into another fit of laughter. We eventually ate our sandwiches … well, TJ just kind of dissected hers … during which time our paranoia was ridiculously high. I felt so disorientated, I thought I was in Finchley High Road but then realised I was in a strange land and wished I was home; everything around us seemed dark and threatening. I took a look at the packet and it said ‘not for consumption’ all over it. I said, ‘Looks like it’s not for consumption, I think I’ll give that a miss’ and she agreed.

I came home and went to bed for a while, feeling totally poisoned, and read up about Black Mamba and ‘legal highs’. Black Mamba is actually incense that has been sprayed with chemicals called ‘artificial cannabanoids’ and is totally unsafe, addictive and dangerous! The buzz was nothing like smoking weed, it was more like inhaling a solvent or something like amyl nitrate (which I absolutely hate, having abused it as a teen), it was a quick, trippy high and a nasty, dull come-down.

How can this be legal and something as natural as marijuana is illegal!? This is some nasty shit; do not consume.
