From the article:
‘Criminal-chemists start with a known drug - in this case methamphetamine, then in their factor they start making little changes to it,’ Cohen told CNN.
‘Here, they pop a few extra carbon and hydrogen molecules onto it. But the main structure/backbone/skeleton of the drug remains the same.’
Hydrogen Peroxide has the same structure as H2O with ONE added Oxygen molecule. So by this guy's logic they must both do the same thing upon being digested into the body.
Yeah, that quote was classic for sure. So easy to just 'pop a few extra carbon and hydrogen molecules' on there....AND, make it a completely different compound!
I had a similar conversation the other day (based in politics) about how uninformed many people are and just take stories and quotes like this as truth. Unbelievable...
Trying to be objective, they may
have a point if the altered compound gets metabolized in the body and converted into the desired compound (meth in this case) but there's no mention of that here in the article at all.
