Commonly Abused Drugs

Commonly Abused Drugs

Some of the more common abused drugs are alcohol, marijuana, opium, heroin, stimulants (cocaine, amphetamines, methamphetamines), hallucinogens (LSD, mescaline, psilocybin), club drugs (MDMA- methylene-dioxy-methamphetamine, GHB- gamma-hydroxybutyrate, flunitrazepam), PCP, salvia divinorum, and ketamine. Unlike prescriptions, these drugs rarely, if ever, have a legitimate use, and are illegal (though some states have actually legalized marijuana despite the damage it is known to cause), not to mention very addicting. Other commonly abused drugs that might have medical reasons for use, such as dextromethorphan (DMX) in cough or cold remedies, also include anabolic steroids and inhalants.
