The results of taking Blue Glass include almost the complete list of classic euphoric effects: feelings of extreme optimism and happiness; greatly enhanced reflexes; sensory and sexual pleasure; and improved visual acuity.

Sadly the effects are almost immediately followed by the onset semi-permanent suicidal catatonia, meaning that although users will become addicted very quickly, they will also be unlikely to rouse themselves to get a second hit of Blue Glass, despite its low, low price of only a single American dollar per hit.
