Password Resets, Legal Highs, and Drug Volumes

Dear Brian,
How do you reset a password on an Acer One laptop?

The Operating System (Windows, Android, Ubuntu, etc.) matters more than the computer manufacturer.

Here’s how to reset Windows  8.1 Passwords Page on

Here’s a video tutorial on how to bypass a Windows 7 Password:

WinXP process: Page on

This is how you do it on Ubuntu Linux: Reset Your Forgotten Ubuntu Password in 2 Minutes or Less

Redhat Linux: Forgotten root Password

Chrome OS: Reset your Chromebook

The general idea behind all of these is to gain admin access, use a password hint, or utilize the password recovery options for your Microsoft or Google accounts. When all else fails, reinstall or repair the OS.

If you have files you don’t want to lose with a fresh OS install, a quick fix is to pull the hard drive out and hook it up to to a desktop PC you can access. Your PC will see it as just another added internal drive, and you can copy most files. Those protected by your user account will take a little “hacking,” but it’s not too hard.

Hope this helps.

Dear Brian,
Is it possible to convert legal psychoactive medicines into illegal drugs like hallucinogens, entheogens, etc. by chemical reactions?

I have a friend who works as a tenured University chemistry professor. We’re friends for the same reason he became a chemistry teacher, which is that we share an interest in drug experimentation.

This guy is nuts and understands about a dozen ways to make meth, molly, 25-i, LSD, DMT, and all that stuff using the type of chemicals you or I would end up on a terrorist watch list for even looking for online.

I’m sure I could visit him, posit this question, and turn Quora into a recipe site that’s sure to rival the Anarchist’s Cookbook, putting a huge target on my back for law enforcement.

Instead, I bring him up to give you an insider’s tip that if you’re interested in this route, you need to study chemistry in school.

I’m not going to teach you how to make drugs online any more than I would buy you alcohol if you approached me outside a gas station. It’s not because I have any moral objection to you experimenting with drugs but because I don’t want to go to jail over it. I have enough on my plate at the moment haha.

What I can offer you is a little background info on some ways to get high off legal substances:

Benzos like Xanax and Valium are tranquilizers that can give you a slight feeling of disassociation. They’re the most widely prescribed medication, and if you know more then 5 women, I can almost promise you know someone with a huge stockpile of them.

Mephedrone, methamphetamine, and bath salts are uppers that can be homebrewed. There are recipes all over the Internet and you can purchase them from China through the deep web on a TOR browser: How do you access the deep web?

Dimethyltryptamine is the active ingredient in Ayahuasca (check out DMT: The Spirit Molecule documentary on Netflix). DMT can also be extracted from pretty much any plant, though Acacia, Mimosa, Phalaris grass are the most commonly used plants.QT’s DMT Extraction Guide

Psylocybin Mushroom grow kits can be found on the deep web, are probably the easiest hallucinogen to produce, and have a great yield.

Dextromethorphan is the active ingredient in Robotussin that people used to get high off. It’s been removed from the OTC cough syrups, but you can still get it prescribed.

Morning Glory, Salvia, Kava root, Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, and Damiana all have natural psychedelic effects and are legal to grow in most of the world. Even if they’re not, the odds of someone even knowing what it is you’re growing are much slimmer than cannabis.

Papaver somniferum is the proper name for the opium-producing poppy plant that you may also be able to legally own to make your own opium, which is a combination of morphine, codeine, and a few other prescribed drugs. In both the U.S and U.K. cultivating a poppy plant isn’t illegal until you process it (or admit you’re growing it for that purpose).

You can also purchase Nitrous Oxide tanks for quick “Whip-its” at most smoke shops. They look like the CO2 cartridges used in paintball guns but are filled with NO2, which get you a 10-minute euphoric high. Just make sure you empty it into a balloon first so you don’t freeze your face off.

Hope this helps…

Dear Brian,
What is a “dime sack”?

A dime sack is $10 worth of cannabis in a baggie. Back in the day, $10 bought a lot of stem and seed-filled weed. These days, you’re lucky if it’ll buy you a gram, which ranges in prices from $5-$30, depending on where you live.

Here’s a few drug terms you may come across in pop culture vernacular:

Dub – $20 worth of any drug.
Quarter – A quarter of an ounce, or 7.01 grams, of marijuana.
Teener – A sixteenth of an ounce of coke.
Eightball – An eighth of an ounce of coke.
Key – A kilogram of coke.
