Well from what I can find these seem to be prescription amphetamines, which are certainly not the healthiest things to be abusing. In some respects it is safer than cocaine, as I imagine it probably really is a prescription strength drug, not something made up in a backwoods lab and cut 15 times with different things, however it is still very bad for your circulatory system.

Beans is just another term for ecstacy.

Both cocaine and ecstacy are class A drugs. Well, at least here in the UK they are. So yes, they are both very dangerous.

Yeah Beans is just slang for ecstacy,

cocaine and ecstacy have diffrent side effects to them, but they are both class A drugs.

While it is not as addictive as heroin or cocaine, ecstasy can cause other adverse effects including nausea, hallucinations, chills, sweating, increases in body temperature, tremors, involuntary teeth clenching, muscle cramping, and blurred vision. Ecstasy users also report after-effects of anxiety, paranoia, and depression.
Short-term side effects of ecstasy
  • Nausea
  • Hallucinations
  • Chills & sweating
  • Increased body temp
  • Tremors
  • Muscle cramping
  • Blurred vision

Have you talked to your brother about how you feel about his drug use?

Beans could mean ecstasy, in some cases, prescriptive pills or cough pills. It all depends on where you live although i'm putting my money on X.
