What is 2C-E?
It's a psychedelic, typically found in white, crystalline powder form. It was first synthesized by pharmacologist Alexander Shulgin, who is also known for popularizing Ecstasy.

The drug is usually ingested, but can also be administered nasally. It causes hallucinations similar to LSD, although in some cases overly intense.

The average dose's usually takes beteween 20 and 90 minutes to take effect and last between six and ten hours. A person taking the drug could have their perception altered for up to a day after they have taken it.

"Because 2C-E can be obtained over the internet, people are misled into thinking that the drug is harmless. The drug is not harmless, and as a matter of fact, 2C-E is amongst a class of drugs called phenthylamine which cause intense hallucinations."
- Derry Hallmark, Senior Director for Expansion for Narconon Arrowhead.
Taking more than the average dose can have very adverse effects, including HPPD, a condition in which the visual effects of the drug continue after the effects of the drug have worn off.

The first death reported from the drug was recorded March 17, 2011 when a 19-year-old suffered a heart attack after inhaling the drug.

Several countries including the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Denmark have classified the drug as a controlled substance, but is not classfied as such in the U.S. at this time. However, selling it, possessing it or using it for non-medical or industrial uses could be prosecuted as a crime under the Federal Analog Act.
