OMG - I've just found out that they've banned the sales of poppers/amyl in NZ sex shops - like just before lockdown?!?!?!?

 

 

 

From what i've read, Medsafe have said that alkyl nitrates (which includes isopropyl nitrate) are now scheduled as prescription medicines. WHAAAATTTTTTTTT??? So, does that mean, i need to go to my doc, get an rx for poppers and get it dispensed at the pharmacy!!!

 

 

 

Anybody out there know more about what's happening with this as it just seems absolutely crazy!!!

 

 

 

Or, anybody know where poppers may still be able to be purchased (as stockists MUST be having to clear stock)?

 

 

 

Feel free to PM me

I know it's rough isn't it?

 

I switched to P, it's much easier to get.

Most likely following AU....

 

"Poppers are legal in Australia, and from 2020, poppers can be purchased as a schedule 3 substance from pharmacies, or a schedule 4 substance with a prescription." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poppers

You’ll need to relax your anal muscles some other way.

This is one of those threads that makes me realise I live a VERY pedestrian lifestyle...

You aren’t missing out on anything, unless you want to waste money and time. Anything that is used as an industrial solvent or to treat cyanide poisoning, well I would suggest not so good for you.

 

Great with cocaine though ...

Also, responsible for one of the greatest guitar intro’s of all time - interestingly only played once on the entire track. They denied it of course.

 

I’m sure Kevvy can reference.

Surely Wikipedia can't be banned? And from there, it is is only one click further (still on Wikipedia) to get the info. 🤪

After searching up this topic, I think there will probably a few of us that don't want to go sticking our fingers or poking our noses into this subject. 😉
