This is missing rectal and insufflation as ROA's, could someone who knows the duration's of each phase add those in?

@Natycat: Request noted. We will try to add these values soon. --Clarity (talk) 23:51, 3 October 2017 (CEST)

Structural similarity to mescaline

The following sentence (2nd sentence in the introduction) "It is a popular member of the 2C-x family of psychedelic phenethylamines, all of which are derivatives of mescaline." is incorrect. Mescaline is a 3,4,5-substituted phenethylamine, while 2C-x compounds are 2,4,5-substituted phenethylamines. Slight, but nonetheless (bio)chemically significant difference. I edited the phrase out.

@Hydroxypcp: You are right in that the initial wording of the statement was a bit imprecise, or contained some ambiguity. "Derivative" can be a bit of a tricky word as its meaning can differ depending on whether it is used in, say, a strictly modern chemical context, or a looser historical one. I don't think it's necessarily wrong to say that 2C-x is a second-order derivative series of mescaline, with DOx being the first. The team has discussed this matter and decided on a clearer and more accurate way of wording the statement. We hope you find it reasonable. --Clarity (talk) 18:02, 16 November 2017 (CET)
@Clarity: Yes, now it sounds far better. Hydroxypcp (talk) 06:14, 17 November 2017 (CET)
