The Most Dangerous Drugs In The World
Life

Many scientific and psychiatric studies confirm that there are a number of drugs which have potentially extreme and dangerous effects on the health of the individual who uses them. Science asserts that excess of all these drugs is bad and can cause extreme health problems.

A number of cases have been reported in which individuals prone to use these drugs died due to their excess usage. The individuals that don’t die from it have permanent physical and mental damage. The best way for a drug user to stop there addiction is to submit them selves though a

Here are some of the most dangerous drugs to exist in the modern world:


10. Bath Salts

Like Ecstasy and methamphetamine, the drug known as “bath salts” is a designer drug, which means it’s synthetic, concocted in a lab. (On the street, it’s also sometimes called “bath powder,” “herbal incense,” or “plant food.”). What makes the term “bath salts” more confusing, though, is that name is used for a surprisingly large number of different chemical combinations. But the drug also apparently causes paranoid delusions and/or hallucinations. Experts are saying it’s psychoactive, rather than hallucinogenic like acid, but the end result appears to be similar: delusional beliefs acted upon in violent ways.

9. Benzodiazepines

This drug is psychoactive in nature and is used to treat problems of depression mostly. The action of this drug becomes dangerous when it is used in excess. The exact action of the drug on the nervous system is known with certainty and the specialists assert that it can cause many side effects. For example, slurred speech, drowsiness and severe depression and dependency.

8. Crystal Meth

This is yet another drug which acts as a stimulant and was indeed a great invention in the field psycho pharmacology. It also acts in suppressing one’s appetite. The action and the effects of this drug become dangerous to one’s health when it is used for recreational purposes. The common effects are dizziness, visual impairment, ADHD and restlessness.

7. Ketamine

This drug is a very powerful drug that can cause hallucinations and even paranoia. It has a number of effects on the human body including anesthesia, visual and auditory hallucinations and blood pressure problems. It has been reported for a number of recreational uses and in addiction.

6. Street Methadone

This drug has been reported as a form of an opiate drug. Its acts as an agonist in the nervous system and it also effects heavily on the neurotransmitters which are released in the human brain. The overdose of this drug can cause pneumonia, Hepatitis, and even a number of psychological disorders. The respiratory depressions and actions it causes can even cause death.

5. Cocaine

This drug is indeed a very dangerous drug which is known all around the world as the slow killer. This drug influences a number of neurotransmitters at the same time and is extremely dangerous to the nervous functioning of the brain. It is has been banned in many countries due to the number of deaths it has caused.

4. Opiates

Street names include Codeine, China White, Ddarvon, Darvocet, Demerol, dilaudid, heroin, methadone, Morphine, Percocet, Percodan, Talwin, and Vicodin. According to the United States Library of Medicine, many prescription drugs are characterized as opiates. Morphine is an opiate often legally prescribed to alleviate chronic pain; however, due to its addictive nature, it is administered in hospital settings. Other legally prescribed opiates include codeine, methadone and Oxycontin. One of the most common illegal opiates is heroin, a more concentrated form of morphine. The Partnership for a Drug-Free America reports that heroin is so addictive that withdrawal symptoms can appear within hours of not using.

3. Heroin

It is a derivative of opium and is the most dangerous drug responsible of thousands of deaths every year. The tolerance to this drug develops very fast and so the body demands more and more intake of this drug. The fatal side effects include shortness of breath, seizures, disorientation, abnormal behavior, cycles of knock outs and even the whole brain stops functioning at times leading to sudden death.

2. LSD

LSD produces unpredictable psychological effects, with “trips” lasting about 12 hours. With large enough doses, users experience delusions and hallucinations. Physical effects include increased body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure; sleeplessness; and loss of appetite.

1. The Devil’s Breath

This drug has the power to eliminate free will and wipe out memory and is being dealt with regularly on the streets of Colombia. Scopolamine, or ‘The Devil’s Breath,’ comes from a tree common to South America. Since scopolamine is odorless and tasteless, it can be blown in the face of a passerby on the street and, within minutes, that person is under the drug’s effect. Leaving you hopeless with no free will, making you obey every order you are given.
