Club And Party Drugs
- MDMA- Molly
Hallucinogens and dissociative drugs– which have street names like acid, angel dust, and vitamin K– distort the way a user perceives time, movement, colors, sounds, and self. These drugs can interrupt an individual’s ability to think and interact rationally, and even to recognize reality, often leading to unusual or dangerous behavior. Hallucinogens such as LSD, psilocybin, peyote, DMT, and ayahuasca trigger feelings to swing hugely and real-world sensations to appear unreal, in some cases frightening. Dissociative drugs like PCP, ketamine, dextromethorphan, and Salvia divinorum may make a user feel out of control and disconnected from their body and environment.
In addition to their short-term results on understanding and state of mind, hallucinogenic drugs are associated with psychotic-like episodes that can take place long after a person has actually taken the drug, and dissociative drugs can trigger breathing depression, heart rate irregularities, and a withdrawal syndrome. The good news is that use of hallucinogenic and dissociative drugs among U.S. high school students, in basic, has stayed fairly low in recent years. However, the intro of brand-new hallucinogenic and dissociative drugs is of particular issue.
NIDA research is developing a clearer image of the threats of hallucinogenic and dissociative drugs. We have compiled the scientific details in this report to notify readers and ideally avoid the use of these drugs.
