Put these drugs out, before it takes you out.

One of the issues discussed and on the agenda today is the legalization of drug uses. Some countries allow certain types of drugs, some are still in the process of permitting, but the majority of the world is strictly against drug use. Some of these drugs, whether legal or not, are used by young people in various organizations and sometimes cause serious problems.

In this article, we would like to examine various drug use, to consider possible dangers whilst to raise awareness of our valuable followers. Here are a few drugs that are notorious for use at festivals.

ECSTASY

The compound consisting of methylenedioxymethamphetamine is also known by names such as Molly and E. The effects of ecstasy may start to be felt within 20 minutes to 1 hour after an ecstasy pill has been swallowed and may last for approximately 6 hours.

Effects:

  • increased confidence and energy
  • feelings of wellbeing
  • feelings of closeness to others
  • anxiety
  • sweating
  • increased blood pressure & heart rate

So, what are the effects after excessive and wrong use? Overdose of ecstasy is indicated when these symptoms advance in intensity and dangerous conditions emerge, including renal failure and cardiac arrhythmias.  Other symptoms of an overdose include:

  • Hyperthermia—a dangerous overheating of the body
  • Very high blood pressure
  • Fainting spells
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Panic attacks

Do not forget to get hydrated before you even try to use it, and keep in mind that it is easier to get overdosed which will risk your life.

Cocaine

It is a white powder stimulant that is normally snorted or rubbed into the gums. When snorted, cocaine can take from around 5 to 30 minutes to kick in, whereas the effects of smoking crack are almost instant. The initial high from cocaine doesn’t last that long, around 20 to 30 minutes – although this depends on the purity of the cocaine and the person’s tolerance.

Taking cocaine can make you feel:

  • happy
  • excited
  • wide awake
  • confident
  • chattier
  • more animated

Cocaine is risky for anyone with high blood pressure or a heart condition, but even healthy young people can have a fit, heart attack or stroke after using the drug. The risk of overdose increases if you mix cocaine with other drugs or alcohol.

Regular use of cocaine can make people feel:

  • depressed
  • run-down
  • anxious
  • paranoid

This is a Class A drug, which means it is illegal to have for yourself, give away or sell. Possession can get you up to 7 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both.


KET1

Ketamine

It is sold as a grainy white or light brown powder. Looks similar to cocaine but is a very different drug. Ketamine is a general anaesthetic so it reduces sensations in the body. Trips can last for a couple of hours.

Taking ketamine can make you feel:

  • dream-like and detached
  • chilled, relaxed and happy
  • confused and nauseated

Ketamine is a very powerful anesthetic that can cause serious harm. Taking ketamine can be fatal, particularly if it is mixed with other drugs. It can increase your heart rate and blood pressure. It can make you confused, agitated, delirious and disconnected from reality.

Effects on your body:

  • Memory loss
  • nausea
  • depression
  • numb

If the police catch people supplying illegal drugs in a home, club, bar or hostel, they can potentially prosecute the landlord, club owner or any other person concerned in the management of the premises.

Designer Drugs

The term refers to drugs that are created in a laboratory (typically, an “underground,” or secret, illegal lab). A designer drug is created by changing the properties of a drug that comes from a plant—such as cocaine, morphine, or marijuana—using the tools of chemistry. The resulting “designer” drugs typically have a new, different effect on the brain or behavior. These drugs may also be referred to as “club drugs” because of their use in night clubs.

Since many designer drugs are created in illegal labs, their ingredients and potency (how strong they are) vary a lot, making it nearly impossible to know what is actually in them or what they can do to you.

It is not surprising that these unknown mixtures can cause dangerous side effects, such as seizures, memory loss, coma and even death.


“Be aware that all people have their physical properties, some have conditions they do not know about, and drug use can lead to overdoses which bring panic attacks, anxiety, depression, self-harming, cardiac arrest, hyperventilation, damage to organs and even death.”
