3-MMC – Introduced as a Designer Drug!
3-MMC or 3-Methylmethcathinone is basically introduced as a designer drug coming from the family of substituted cathinone. This brings out its entactogen and empathogen effects. This is also somehow related in its structure to the drug mephedrone. This is also believed to be illegal in many countries. These countries are those that also banned 3-mephedrone because of the fact that it is a structural isomer of the 4-mephedrone. Nevertheless, it has appeared on the market of “legal high”. This became an alternative to the mephedrone. This was also identified as something that was sold in Sweden. This took place in the year of 2012. As compared to other legal highs, this was characterized and tested in huge-sized mammals. This provided enough knowledge about this chemical than any other synthetic cathinones.
In the year of 2015, month of October, 3-MMC is classified as a controlled substance. This is introduced in China. This was, however, banned in the country of Czech Republic. This was somehow not banned by the recognized UNODC. This was also because of a critical review.
Come in the Form of Crystallized Shards or White Powder
Just like all other research chemical cathinone predecessors, this entactogenic stimulant comes in the form of crystallized shards or white powder. Users will be able to ingest it in order to produce a fast-acting and powerful but stimulant and entactogen effects on a short-lived basis. This is especially true if they are vaporized, injected or insufflated.
3-MMC already gained notoriety because of its associated tendency of inducing addictive behaviors and compulsive re-dosing. This is true to a significant number of users. This is also because of its ability of inducing anxiety, paranoia, stimulant psychosis and delusional states. This is especially if it is taken in excess amount and in a frequent basis over a long period of time.
Nevertheless, only a little data exist about the metabolism, toxicity and pharmacological properties of 3-MMC. This also reported just a little history about its human usage. This was already available in the online research chemical market!
