So, tipped off by another user here, I've decided to look into the synthesis of methcathinone. I found set of instructions, and it seems simple enough.
In Canada, Sudafed contains phenylephrine hydrochloride, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride in a 120mg "12 hour time release" capsule, or pseudoephedrine hydrochloride combined with other ingredients (e.g. Ibuprofen).
Could I use that as a source of pseudo?
Here are the forms of sudafed available at Rexall, which would be best?
