Quaaludes, Whatever Became of Them?

I heard about them all the time when I was younger, but nothing in the years since then.

Never saw one either.

Good old 714's were discontinued in the late 70's.

Apparently, smoking sopor powder is the drug of choice in South Africa. Mixed with tobacco, I think. I've also heard that you can get Mandrax in Mexico - that's what ruined Syd Barrett

Mexican "ludes" are almost always glutethimide or something similar, useless (unless you have some codeine 4's).

Yes we did, didn't we...and all the RORER 714s as well! I remember you could "set them off" with a beer in the first hour or so...high times indeed.

Being older does have SOME advantages...LOL!

(Oh- and don't forget Mandrax)

Re: Quaaludes, Whatever Became of Them?
They had the greatest drug name of all time. My friends did them but I stuck with the "natural" stuff, except white cross I guess, we all did that, oh, and acid, what else, it's all a blur of cheap beer, cheap pot, and mushrooms. Coke was there in quantity but such a bad trip.

the name Quaaludes and the decade, reminded me of Qiana fabric, do you remember that slinky stuff, there is a short entry here
[link to en.wikipedia.org] which specifically refers to men's disco shirts with bold colored patterns. I remember the ones that had pictures, like a montage of framed landscapes in a watercolor style. Shiny! mmmm and skimpy wrap dresses.

Well, for me they were about the most addictive thing ever. Probably true for a lot of people. They really made you feel good (kinda warm and tingly), made you speak honestly, and made you horny as hell!

Closest thing to them today is probably X, but for me it can't compare to 'luudes.

Re: Quaaludes, Whatever Became of Them?
They were thought to be both safe and effective when barbituates were pulled off the market after too many celeb suicides were accomplished with them.

Then they found out that "Ludes" could get your far higher than seconal ever could. They were wild if you you fought them. (if you didn't, you went to sleep!)

The government didn't want anyone enjoying sleeping pills,of course, so they were pulled off the market, too.

Re: Quaaludes, Whatever Became of Them?
I was a huge fan of 'ludes too!

I always liked the drugs that made you mellow out and chill.
Then the world went crazy for go fast speedy type drugs. Bleech :P

'Ludes used to make me feel like I was sitting in front of a roaring fire place in a huge comfortable wing back chair and foot rest with a big soft blanket wrapped around me.

It's too bad the drug users went crazy for speed, heroin and acid. I tried em all but never really cared for the way it wore my body down.

'ludes kind of gave us a nice hug effect.

Because a Senator from Florida (Paula Hawkins) made it her personal crusade to get a worldwide ban on the ludes. If you were really in the loop you could score some Parrest which were more potent than a 714s.
