The quality of meth was great back in the 80's and into the early 90's still. A couple of Mexicans single handedly imported lots and lots ephedrine from the Chinese and started making it. I was pretty young and stupid back then and actually tried the stuff, it's like rocket fuel. Makes your heart beat fast and your brain go "wahoo", but it's different for everyone. I never cared for going fast, I was naturally wired to go fast already. I was happy to experiment but never got into drugs because the people who did them just gave me a bad vibe. Now, with the good ingredients for Meth being unavailable the quality really suffered, I mean look at heroin these days, how bad that has gotten, people dying left and right from it.
