I know dozens of people who take it on a regular basis & function perfectly normally. According to the Drug-Workers Bible it is common for users not to have to increase their dose. I think the problems start with individuals who find it habit-forming. I know a few of them as well. A lot of them exhibit mild paranoia & given the cost, are drawn into crime.

Exactly. Try taking (base) speed daily. I did (a few years back). When you look in the mirror & see yr hair crawling with 1000's of insects, & the voices float in & out of hearing range, you know it's time to pack it in %-). Nasty drug. Quick burn-out. No redeeming qualities (tho' paradoxically, Desoxyn can be of benefit to some ADD people). No good for sleep, appetite, libido, skin, gums etc etc.
