They were discovered in the '50's and patented in the '60's, yet it took recreational use in the '70's to make Quaalude a household word.
In some houses, anyway.
Lemmon 7's to some, disco biscuits to others, the distinctive white tabs bearing the ominous '714' we lovingly called 'ludes meant good times were in hand. Literally. Big tabs, scored down the middle to make sharing easy. Quaaludes became the drug of choice for a growing number of folks, prized for the warm, welcome glow it brought the user.
Until 1982, when the US Government withdrew the drug from the market. By 1984 it was named a Schedule I drug by the DEA, and by the mid 90's the underground labs in Mexico had turned to the production of more popular and profitable poisons.
Since then, 'ludes have largely lived on in the memory of those who used them. Their legend continues, fueled by continual pop culture references in songs, tv shows and movies.
Today, the legend lives on with the highest quality Quaalude Tribute Merchandise from Mr. Q's Quaalude Emporium.
