PITTSBURGH (KDKA) Police are investigating after two Washington County teens were taken to the hospital after taking LSD.
Police say two 14-year-old boys were transported to Mon Valley Hospital after taking the drug Wednesday.
They allegedly traded a PlayStation 3 gaming console for six hits of LSD in Fallowfield Township.
One of the boys was transferred to Childrens Hospital.
No word on their conditions or who gave them drugs.
Worth tradin' yer PlayStation fer!
Acid: Still more interesting than a Playstation.
“Honey, what happened to that Playstation we gave you for your birthday...son? you seem to be acting weird today...”
Xbox 360 has won the console gaming wars.
ha, good one! I still get a kick out of the fact his real name is Hugh Romney.
Certainly the most well adjusted of that bunch.
Probably not real LSD if it made them sick. A lot of “LSD” is actually 25I-NBMOE, which can be put on blotters. It has a spotty track record for hospitalizations and bad side effects.
A PlayStation goes second-hand for what, 60 bux?
On the plus side, some other teens gave up LSD and got a Play Station in return.
far Out !
Fallowfield Township = Charleroi = Mon Valley = end-of-civilization Obamaville
Let me get this straight, you’ve got a magic box that lets you become a cyborg, ninja, or purple hedgehog anytime you want, for free, and you trade that for a drug that lets you escape reality only six times before you have to pay for some more? We’re not dealing with a couple geniuses here.
far Out !
Lupus killed Lucy.
Nobody gave them drugs, it was a business transaction with a willing seller and willing buyers.
Which is which is a personal choice.
I don't play any video games - boring!
Boy times are tough in Obama’s America....Having to trade your playstation for LSD. What’s next having to give away your Smartphone for a joint???
Many people warned that under Obama we would become more of a barter economy....
Yes, do remember...
“Whoa... colors...” “Sega!”
Did they each take 3 hits (6 total)? That would be a lot of acid for an adult, much less a kid.
I used to get queasy to my stomach. Three hits might well have made me sick. At the time, people would talk about an additive in the acid, but I’ve forgotten what it was now.
It’s not a drug for little kids.
Who knows how much is in a “hit?” DEA has reported a range of doses in confiscated LSD blotter and tabs. It can range from 10 ug per square to 100 for blotter, and 40 to 400 ug in tabs. Since 1990 the lower doses are more common, because of the club scene ( a 50 ug trip in a club is much easier to handle than a 500 ug ego death trip).
More modern dosing actually reverts back to 1963, with dealers having “acid” ( or DOB, 25i, or who knows) dissolved in vodka and customers getting it on sugar cubes or dropped directly on the tongue, again with who knows what dose per drop.
Lots of “acid” these days is 25i, or 2-(4-iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl)methyl]ethanamine, which is readily available online. It’s much more available than LSD, which took a huge nosedive when Picard and Apperson got busted making kilogram batches of pretty pure LSD.
