What is 2-DPMP?

2-DPMP is a powerful stimulant that has been found in the product ‘Ivory Wave’. It was taken as a ‘legal high’ and has amphetamine-like stimulant effects similar to speed. 2-DPMP effects can be both powerful and long-lasting, with effects that can last as long as 5-7 days – some users have had to go to hospital for help.

The related compounds D2PM and diphenylmethylpyrrolidine are also stimulants, with similar effects and risks to 2-DPMP.

The key effects and risks of 2-DPMP and related compounds include:

  • Feelings of euphoria, alertness, talkativeness and feelings of empathy.
  • Paranoia, hallucinations, severe agitation and muscle spasms.
  • Over-stimulation the heart and circulation.
  • Over-excitation of the nervous system – with risk of fits and dangerous overheating of the body.

On 13 June 2012, 2-DPMP, D2PM and diphenylmethylpyrrolidine were all made Class B drugs, which means they are now illegal to possess, give away or sell.

2-DPMP is reported as white or off-white powder. When sold as a legal high, it cost from between £11 and £18 for between 200-500mg. It is likely that related compounds, such as D2PM and diphenylmethylpyrrolidine, will have a similar appearance and cost, but there is limited information at this time to confirm this.
