Providing straightforward information pertaining to drugs, drug use & drug policy. The Grey Pages promotes drug-related literacy and advocates a system of viable and tolerant drug policies. This is my personal collection of commentaries, essays, tid-bits, and other such writings on everything ranging from drug use, drug policy and drug-myths, to drug-science, addiction, human behavior, and the workings of the human brain. I started this blog with a particular focus on opioids, and over the past year have found my interest gravitate toward the intriguing, ever-changing world of designer intoxicants (i.e. "research chemicals" or "designer drugs").

DOM Vault (i.e. STP)

Popularly known as STP (for Serenity, Tranquility, and Peace). DOM is a psychoactive compound of the phenethylamine chemical family - it is chemically known as 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine. It is known for its hallucinogenic/psychedelic properties.

In its users, DOM produces alterations in sensory perception and processing, open or closed eye hallucinations, and fundamental changes in thought process, cognition, and awareness.

DOM shares similar pharmacology with LSD, as it acts as a partial agonist at 5HT serotonergic receptors - specifically 5HT2 type A, B, and C. Its hallucinogenic effects have been attributed to its action at the 2A subtype.
