    Where abouts r u from? it depends on the region

    It costs me £3 a pill, thats about 4 and half euros.

    But the UK is prolly the cheapest place on the planet for pills.

    I usually chip in with my sister's boyfriend and have been getting them for £1.50's. Then again we usually buy 50+ at a time.

    For single pills it can vary between 2-3 quid.

    Because they're cheaper it means I usually do more, excessive amounts sometimes which is not always a good thing.

    Its coz most of the pills are made in holland and so it costs more to ship over to the states and other places

    I rememeber reading that Holland, Britain and Eastern European countries such as Poland are the biggest pill producers.

    Lexicon the price will drop over there, it's just a matter of time. In the early 90's in this country they were going at prices up to £20, and when I first started they were around a tenner. Now look at the price!

    I pay 3 or 4 quids for a pill but thats because I dont want to buy in large quantities. You never know that you might got a shitty batch...

    I know someone who took E for many years said they were expensive in the old days but the quality for majority was better than now.

    God I hope you're right. The sooner the better. Dropping $40 for a night of fun hurts. <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    What I don't understand is why there aren't more people in the US making ecstasy. I mean, there's lots of people growing pot, or making meth, but no e???

    Dunno why, perhaps no1 there actually knows how to make a pill, perhaps no1 there can actually get their hands on MDMA.

    Over here in europe Meth is hard to cum by, to be honest id rather it didnt cum over here, nasty drug that is.

    Pills are only so cheap because there complete shite compared to what they used to be. back in the 90's at the original raves, you would buy one pill for £10, and it would have you flying all night, still feeling chirpy the next day. <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    nowadays you can eat them like sweets and they just get you fucked rather than the true dance all night ecstacy effect.

    shame really, now that ecstacy is alot more popular, the people who make them seem to concentrate on quantity rather than quality. <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    The quality of pills hasn't dropped, infact there is a lot of data that says they quality has actually got better.

    The problem is, when you start doing pills they're great, but after a while once your tolerance has built up they lose their magic.

    You can take a break but that initial honeymoon period, where all pills seemed so much better can never by recaptured.

    this is true, but pill quality has certainly dropped. theres so many shit pills going around its unreal.

    remember a time when you bought a mitsi and you were guarenteed a quality pill - these days are long gone, ive had so many differant kinds of mitsis nowadays - most of them being shit.

    go to www.pillreports.com and youl see what i mean

    Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Pills nowadays contain on average between 80-120 mg of MDMA, back when pills were first being taken it was more like 100-150mg.

    The reason u get crap mitzis now is coz the first "amazing" batch was made and they were mint!! now the makers try to leech off that good reputation and make not so good pills but know they will sell coz of the good rep they have had.

    In my opinion u gotta take each pill as it cums, with the attitude no 2 pills are the same even if they have the same logo (unless of course u know 4 sure they are from the same batch)

    But also when u first start with pills they blow ur head off, and over time u build up tolerance to em and the effects become less and less

    Right this information is about two years old but it backs up what I said.

    Since ecstasy first arrived in Britain, the quality has varied widely. At first it was almost entirely pure MDMA, but as it became more popular the quality declined, reaching a low ebb in the winter of 1992. Since then quality has generally improved, with a higher proportion of pills containing MDMA, and average doses 10% higher. The chance of getting a MDMA pill in Britain or Holland is about two out of three, and the chance of getting a pill containing a simialr type drug (MDA or MDEA) is about three out of four.

    There is more... if you are still doubtful. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I've been doing pills since 1996 and I honestly havn't seen a notable trend in the quality of pills.

    It's mad that it's so expensive when the guy who 're-discovered MDMA' lives in the san fran hills. Alexander Schulderging I think his name is, used to hand out small doses at dinner parties instead of martini.

    Well here in the land of Oz we pay between $25.00 to $50.00 it depends on what you want if you want a local (dirt cheap) but if you want an import you are looking at about cheap $35.00 if you know them if not $40.00 and if you want cap's maybe $50.00 that is for good stuff butyou can get cap's for $40.00 so I think that the cheapest place is the UK for sure.

    Hi every one

    So you are wondering how much a Pill cost over here in the Land Of Oz.....well it depends on what you are looking for if you want a local(shit) then it is about $20.00 but if you want an import it costs up to $50.00 that is for a really good one but you can get them over here for about $35.00 but $30.00 if you know the dealer but if not you are looking between $35.00 to $40.00 if you want a cap's they are even more expensive they are around the $50.00 mark but it depends on what you want!

    If you are in a club over here and you want to "get on" it is even more expensive cause they up the price cause they had to take the risk of taking them in to the club so it cost's more <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    They will try and rip you off if you dont know what you are looking for or what is the best thing going around at the time.

    If anyone pays that much for a pill in australia they are being ripped off big time. They cost about $40, which is still a big rip off when look at the price in england of about £4. I could only dream of getting them that cheap.

    <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
    But I still think it is money well spent when you are out with a group of your mates and all on the same level having a great time.

    We club together between 4 of us and buy 100 for £150. You can get them cheaper around here but these are quality mitsies. I've been offered "bumble bees?" for around £130/100. Anyone come across these? I don't think it's worth going lower than £1.50 as there's alot of home made shite around here.

    I hate weak pills but there have been times when i have gotten cynical and double dropped only to come on very very strongly indeed (I couldn't handle it, but i loved trying to, if you know what i mean)
    I guess what i would say is to take every pill as if its unique. I have taken supposedly the same pill and gotten totally different effects off it.
    Also, your mood and surroundings mean alot. Some people claim that pilling at home with your partner is great, but unless im in a club with sweaty smiley people i just get frustrated with it.
