MXE, also known as methoxetamine, is a substance with similar chemical properties to ketamine and phencyclidine (PCP). These are two illicit drugs known for their hallucinogenic and dissociative properties. T is an odorless, white powder that may be taken orally, inhaled through the nose, or injected.
Methoxetamine users may experience pleasurable feelings of euphoria and enlightenment for up to 24 hours after using the drug 2. However, taking too much or having a bad reaction to MXE may lead to psychiatric, cognitive, neurological, and/or cardiovascular problems.
Despite legal restrictions placed on the recreational use of similar drugs, PCP and ketamine, there are currently no federal restrictions on the sale of MXE in the United States
