Love Drugs by Otto Snow
MDA appeared in the 1960s and is the original love drug. It was the first in a series of molecules that produce empathy in humans. MDMA was available in the 1970s. MDEA followed ecstasy in the 1980s.
These molecules were controlled as they were being abused. Substituted phenyl-amino-butanes have reduced abuse potential and greater safety margins. Yet, in 20 years, the development of safer entactogens has not taken place.
Love Drugs gives the reader a look at the most innovative chemistry for entactogen production. Explicit descriptions on safrol extration from multiple botanical sources. Reviews of conventional syntheses with tips of the trade from the original chemists. Love Drugs is an inside look into chemistry of the entactogens, present and future.
