Club Drugs Milford
High energy, all-night dances parties have become the most common places for young people to abuse club drugs. These parties or “raves” are often advertised as drug-free and safe. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. These parties expose young people to a number of club drugs and crime. Overdoses are frequently documented at such events.
Raves are generally the most common venues where club drugs are distributed. Some popular club drugs include MDMA (Ecstasy), GHB and Rohypnol, Methamphetamine (Meth), LSD, and Ketamine. Some club drugs can be tasteless, odorless and colorless which helps to add them to beverages without detection. Sports drinks and water at these events are sold at exaggerated prices in order to help with dehydration and hyperthermia. There are also neon lights to enhance the experience. Due to high body temperature the user may experience, cool down rooms are also available at low prices.
Some of the most commonly abused drugs at these events include:
- Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA): This drug is also known by street names such as Lover’s Speed, Adam, Clarity, Ecstasy, E, X, and XTC. The effects of MDMA can last 3-6 hours and may include increases in hypertension, heart or kidney failure, and high body temperature which can also cause death.
- Gamma-hydoxybutyrate (GHB): This drug is known by street names including Georgia Home Boy, Liquid Ecstasy, Grievous Bodily Harm, and G. This central nervous system depressant can produce sedative and euphoric effects. Other ghb effects include slow breathing and heart rates.
- Methamphetamine: The most common street names for this drug are Fire, Glass, Speed, Crystal, Crank, Ice, Chalk, and Meth. Individuals who abuse this drug may display excited speech, agitation, increased physical activity, and lack of appetite.
- Ketamine: Common street names are Cat Valium, Vitamin K, Special K, and K. Ketamine drugs can produce a variety of effects which may result in impaired learning, attention, and memory function.
- Rohypnol: Street names for this drug include Forget-me Pill, Rophies, Roofies, and Roche. This drug can cause drowsiness, dizziness, visual disturbances, and confusion.
