No I think looking stuff up is fine.
Besides a lot of real labs actually work on that shit, so obviously they're going to be sharing research on the internet.
It's a shame that people can't explore drugs safely due to prohibition, but it's even sadder that it hinders legitimate scientific research.
I was reading about how licensed labs would have tiny amounts of controlled substances that are completely innocuous and the feds would still act like every scientist in those labs was itching to throw away their careers to swipe half a dose of MDMA or whatever.
It's unironic intimidation and it's so funny since any retard off the street can go into literally any major city or any number of darknet markets and get massive amounts for cheap.
The real reason is that they want to ensure their cartels maintain a monopoly on drug sales, but very few people are ready to talk about that.
