HOOKED: ILLEGAL DRUGS & HOW THEY GOT THAT WAY: EPISODE FOUR
LSD, ECSTASY & THE RAVES PART 3 OF 3
Club drugs are a mixed bag of illegal drugs most often abused during all-night dance parties, at raves and in bars or clubs. Examples of common club drugs include ecstasy, LSD (acid), methamphetamine, GHB and Rohypnol.
Although club drugs are most often associated with teen and young adult nightlife, club drugs are becoming increasingly mainstream and appearing in other locations. Several club drugs, most notably GHB and Rohypnol, have been implicated in drug-facilitated sexual assaults.
Although ecstasy has a reputation as a "soft" drug, all club drugs are associated with serious health complications. Methamphetamine, or ice, is reaching epidemic status in some geographic areas, and is one of the most dangerous club drugs.
