Was just interested to know what the difference is between base in the US and the UK. Over the pond (in UK) base is a form of pure speed/whizz that comes in pills, rock or paste. But in the US what is 'freebasing'. I keep hearing the term but surely it has to be a different drug!?
Freebasing is a term used to describe a method of consumption... like a meth pipe or a DMT pipe... it's more like vaporization than burning the substance, because there's a layer of material of some sort (glass in a pipe, but you could do it off tinfoil for instance...) between the substance and the heat source.
I'd imagine that the term originally had a specific meaning of reference to amphetamines, since "base" is a term y'all use for speed in general... but nowadays (around here) it is a general term and could refer to the consumption of any number of substances.
