What is the Legal Status of Dexys in the US ?

I don't touch any drugs of note but occasionally i will take 1 Dexy to keep me up all night when going out.

What is the legal status of Dexys in the US ? Can you get arrested for possesion ?

It's legal in Australia? I tend to doubt that.

It's very illegal here without a prescription, and unless you have narcolepsy you probably won't be getting a prescription.

they are very very very mild, just a notch above caffeine pills to be honest but i find the effects are steady , that's why i like them. I don't get any sudden buzz, i just find later in the night i'm not as sleepy as i normally would be.

While it may help with ADD, just like methamphetamine might, I don't know how often it is prescribed since that there are other drugs that can do the same job and are less liable to be diverted for other use.

Isn't that just too-ra-loo-ra-too-ra-loo-rye aye much.

P.S. In response to the question, "What is the legal status of Dexys in the U.S.?"

At this moment, they mean everything.

That's what I thought. Thought maybe they were getting back together.

Apparently they are in Birrmingham http://profile.myspace.com/dexysmidnightrunners

If by "Dexy", you mean Dexedrine...it's a Schedule 2 (CII) prescription drug...meaning if you get caught with this without a prescription, you can be in deep shit. This is the most controlled, legal prescription drug class. Schedule 1 drugs are not legal to possess (i.e. heroin, marijuana). It's legally used for narcolepsy, and also ADHD in kids.
Dexedrine is an amphetamine (dextroamphetamine).

Des

Stick to energy drinks and coffee, you can either anywhere in the US

Don't "weight loss" type pills hype you up too?

When I was in high school (back in the late 70's), they were called "cross tops". I knew this one girl who had them by the jarfull and sell them to her classmates.

Is that where that Green Day line, "No rest for cross tops in my mind" from Brain Stew comes from? I've always heard that and wondered what the hell he was talking about.

Correct... Been a few years since I popped a Dexy but they will get the job done if you need to stay up.

well, Adderall and Ritalin and whatnot also container amphetamine salts or whatever and those are still regularly prescribed for ADD (even in adults). I've heard there are stimulant free ADD meds (which I think is a much better idea). Either way, I've had friends who've been prescribed all of the above for ADD. Whether they had ADD or even took the stuff for studying or whatever. Hell, I have a friend who is still prescribed Adderall and dude hasn't worked more than 3 months in his life.
