Educator60, While technically he did have a form of amphetamine, to call it speed would be misleading. That makes it sound like he had ice, meth, shabu, crank, crystal, whatever you prefer to call it.

He actually had ecstasy (MDMA, E, Molly, X, 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine), which is quite a different drug really.

Like the difference between 3C-Bromo-Dragonfly & 2C-B-Fly. The former can last 2-3 days, whereas the latter last 6-8 hours.

Not complaining, just making the point that, in Japan, when they say stimulant, people often, assume coke or methamphetamine, which just isn't the case.

Very difficult to OD on ice. I'd imagine it's thespeedball combo that killed him.

I have lived in Japan a long time and have never seen dolphin meat in an eatery or a butcher shop. I have seen whale though. Do they really eat dolphins? Maybe a local thing?

Yes they do actually eat dolphin. No it's not always labeled as whale. You can, in fact, purchase いるか / イルカ / Flipper in the grocery stores of some areas. My wife has family in Izu. I won't say exactly where but oftentimes we are given "fresh" dolphin and squid meat as a gift when we visit.

As it was offered to me I accepted a bite and it's not bad. I agree with the statements on toxicity and inhumanity of it all. "culture" is a lame excuse. Just wanted to let everyone know, not far from Shizuoka city, and probably in the city for that matter, you can buy this meat easily.

Bush policies made us great ROFLMAO! He's serious. That's the funny part. I don't see much happening in the short term but hopefully, over time, some positive progress will be made.
