DragonFLY – new “legal” drug hitting the streets


This was discusse on  Dr. Oz’s show last week there is iinfo on his site. Click Link below:


Bromo-DragonFLY is a psychedelic hallucinogenic drug related to the phenethylamine family. Bromo-DragonFLY is considered an extremely potent hallucinogen, only slightly less potent than LSD with a normal dose in the region of 200 ?g to 800 ?g, and it has an extremely long duration of action up to several days.[1] It is explicitly illegal only in Sweden,[2] Norway and Denmark, although it may be considered a controlled substance analogue under US and Australian drug laws.


Bromo-DragonFLY was first synthesized by Matthew Parker in the laboratory of David E. Nichols in 1998. As with the earlier and less potent dihydrofuran series of compounds nicknamed FLY, Bromo-DragonFLY was named after its superficial structural resemblance to a dragonfly.

It has about 300 times the potency of mescaline, or 1/5 the potency of LSD. It has been sold in the form of blotters, similar to the distribution method of LSD, which has led to confusion, and reports of mistakenly consuming Bromo-DragonFly. It has a much longer duration of action than LSD and can last for up to 2–3 days[1] following a single large dose, with a slow onset of action that can take up to 6 hours before the effects are felt.

The toxicity of Bromo-DragonFLY appears to be fairly high for humans when taken in doses above the therapeutic range, with reports of at least five deaths believed to have resulted from Bromo-DragonFLY reported in Norway,[4] Sweden,[5][6] Denmark[7][8] and the United States.

Also, a Swedish man had to have the front part of his feet and several fingers on one hand amputated after taking a massive overdose. Apparently the compound acted as a long-acting efficacious vasoconstrictor, leading to necrosis and gangrene which was delayed by several weeks after the overdose occurred. Several other cases have also been reported of severe peripheral vasoconstriction following overdose with Bromo-DragonFLY

Overdoses, disturbing experiences, and Bromo-DragonFLY associated health problems have been described. One case in 2008 in England involved inhalation of vomit, causing nearly fatal asphyxia.[12] Seizures have also been reported.[13]

October 3, 2009 a 22 year old man from Copenhagen died after ingesting Bromo-dragonfly. His friend described the trip saying, “It was like being dragged to hell and back again. Many times. It is the most evil [thing] I’ve ever tried. It lasted an eternity” [14]

On May 7, 2011, in the United States, two young adults died after overdosing on Bromo-DragonFLY, which they thought was 2C-E, and several others were hospitalized during the same incident. The deaths occurred after a fatal miscalculation in dosage. Those who took the drug received, in some cases, 100x the normal dose. Both deaths were very violent, resulting in massive seizures, vomiting blood, and terrifying hallucinations, and several surviving victims are still suffering from its effects.[15]

Legal status


Bromo-DragonFLY was classified as a “health hazard” in Sweden on July 15, 2007, making it illegal to sell or possess there.[16][17]


On December 3, 2007 the drug was banned in Denmark.[18] The substance has been declared illegal by health minister Jakob Axel Nielsen, following recommendations from the Danish Health Ministry. It is currently classified as a dangerous narcotic and therefore its possession, manufacture, importation, supply or usage is strictly prohibited. Anyone involved in such activities can face legal action.[16]


Bromo-DragonFLY is currently on the Norwegian narcotics list,.[19][20] Thus it is effectively a narcotic drug by Norwegian law.


The chemical compound has been added as an illegal substance under the Law 143/2000 on February 10, 2010.[21]


As of 9 September 2011, Bromo-DragonFLY was added to Schedule 2 of the Queensland Drugs Misuse Regulation 1987.
