SAY NO TO DRUGS
Over the last few decades the trade of illegal drugs has been on the rise. These drugs are very dangerous and are documented by the Drug Enforcement Agency in the USA. Though sometimes used in pharmaceutical preparations, they are deadly if abused. The following is a list of the most popular drugs with their scientific name where necessary:
Cocaine: This is an extremely powerful stimulant that is very addictive and has damaging effects on the brain of anyone that uses it. Cocaine is made from cocoa leaves and has been abused as a narcotic substance for well over 100 years. Mostly manufactured in South America, the pure version is called cocaine hydrochloride.
Crack: This is a more powerful and dangerous form of cocaine known as crack cocaine. It is actually the free-base form of the cocaine. Crack is actually cocaine that has not been neutralized by any acid base that makes the hydrochloride salt which is cocaine in its most raw form. Crack is a rock crystal that is heated and the vapors inhaled. The name "crack" comes from the crackling sound one hears when the rock crystal is being heated.
Heroin: This highly addictive drug is a fast acting opiate. It is processed from morphine, a potent substance extracted out of the seed pod of poppy plants. Known on the street as black tar, heroin is usually injected and is the worst addictive drug because it can be cut with other drugs such as crack and cocaine.
Hydrocodone: Known as antitussive (otherwise a cough suppressant) this is a prescription drug for mild to severe pain that has been abused for its neurotic qualities. It is one of the most popular cough suppressants and is equally as powerful in pain neutralizers as morphine.
Inhalants: This is not just any one drug, but a combination of volatile solvents, nitrates, and gases. The inhalants are sniffed, snorted and inhaled to acquire a drunk feeling much like that of alcohol. The most popular inhalants are glue, lighter fluid, cleaning fluids, and paint. This is the most popular drug for minors to abuse as it is normally found around the home and access is free.
LSD: Dextro lysergic acid diethylamide tartarate-25. It is among the most potent and most lethal of the dangerous drugs. It is at the top of the psychedelic ladder and Time magazine described it as "a brain eater." LSD is so potent, laboratory test show that a single ounce can give 300,000 doses. It is 100 times more powerful than cocaine or peyote. A pin point of LSD is enough to blast a user's mind off to an uncertain journey with serious consequences.
Marijuana: The most common illegal drug, marijuana or ganja is a dry, shredded mix of flowers, stems, seeds, and leaves from the naturally grown Cannabis sativa. Marijuana is addictive and has neurotic effects that can quickly damage the brain.
MDMA (Ecstasy): A terrible drug that is synthetic and psychoactive dedicated to creating a hallucinogenic fervour. Ecstasy creates an energy effect distorting reality, time, and perception of the taker. Ecstasy ultimately creates a deceptive "joyful" experience.
Methamphetamine (Crystal Meth): Quickly becoming the drug of choice in the USA. It is a deadly drug that is highly addictive and detrimental to the human central nervous system. Its stimulant properties can cause serious brain damage in passive smokers and inhalers of the drug as well.
OxyContin: This is actually a prescription drug that in some countries can be found over the counter or OTC. It is a painkiller prescribed for moderate and acute pain relief caused by physical injuries, arthritis, back pains, and pain felt during cancer treatments.
Anabolic Steroids: These are laboratory produced variants of male hormone testosterone. These are used to promote muscle growth, however they have some very serious side effects such as brain damage and heart attacks.
Everything God created is good, but all these good things can be turned into evil. Poisonous mushrooms are good for breaking down dead wood, but bad for eating. Hemp is good for making rope, but bad for smoking. Don't let Satan deceive you into thinking it's "cool" to take illegal drugs!!
