Street Drugs: Know the Facts and Risks

When you use street or club drugs, you’re taking a lot of risks. The drugs are dangerous, and usually there’s no way to know how strong they are or what else may be in them. It’s even more unsafe to use them along with other substances like alcohol and marijuana.

Here’s a rundown of common street drugs and the health threats they can pose.

Bath Salts

These designer drugs came on the scene fairly recently and became popular fast. That may be because they were easy to get and used to be hard to detect in drug tests.

They’re highly addictive, and they come in a crystalline powder that users swallow, inhale, or inject.

Despite their name, bath salts have nothing in common with products you can use for a soak in the tub.

What else they’re calledPlant FoodBloom, Cloud Nine, Ivory Wave, Lunar Wave, Scarface, Vanilla Sky, or White Lightning.

What type of drug is it? Bath salts contain manmade stimulants called cathinones, which are similar to amphetamines.

What are the effects? These stimulants increase levels of dopamine, a brain chemical that can create feelings of euphoria.
