Slang for a type of methamphetamine called methaqualone. Functions as a sedative-hypnotic. Developed in the 60s by the same company that makes Maalox ( hence the double "a"s ).
Word History: Maalox got it's name for the "ma" in magnesium, the "al" in aluminum, and the "ox" from hydroxides. Quaalude borrowed the "aa" idea and the rest of the word perhaps derives from "quiet interlude" to describe the sedation effect.
Hi, I'm your video DJ.
I always talk like I'm wigged out on quaaludes.
