Designer Drugs / Club Drugs
A designer drug is a controlled substance that has been designed to mimic the pharmacological effects of the original drug, while avoiding classification as illegal and/or detection in standard drug tests. Designer drugs include psychoactive substances that have been designated by the European Union as new psychoactive substances (NPS) as well as analogs of performance-enhancing drugs such as designer steroids. Some of these were originally synthesized by researchers in an effort to discover more potent derivatives with fewer side effects and were later co-opted for recreational use. Because the efficacy and safety of these substances have not been thoroughly evaluated in animal and human trials, the use of some of these drugs may result in unexpected side effects.
Club drugs tend to be used by teenagers and young adults at bars, nightclubs, concerts, and parties. Club drugs are a group of psychoactive drugs that include GHB, Rohypnol®, ketamine, MDMA (Ecstasy), methamphetamine, and LSD (acid). They act on the central nervous system and can cause changes in mood, awareness, and behavior. Club drugs, like most drugs, have nicknames that change over time or are different in different areas of the country.
