Club drugs are drugs that have gained popularity and become ubiquitous in the club scene and at underground raves. With a variety of affects, these drugs stimulate the party and sensual experience of the users, allowing them to dance for all night long and into the morning. Easy to conceal and readily distributed, the user often takes the drug without knowing exactly what they are taking, creating a vast array of harmful and avoidable consequences. Motivated by the desire to party until the sun rises, people in the club scene have chosen the dangers of a wide variety of chemical intoxicants over their own safety.
There is no regulation in the ‘club drugs’ manufacture so they tend to be inconsistent in their exact contents. The uncertainties in their sources, chemicals, possible contaminants, and amount of toxicity make the usage of ‘club drugs’ extremely dangerous. In addition, they are often used in combination with alcohol or other drugs, increasing their potential lethality. Equally alarming, there have been numerous cases documented of ‘club drugs’ being used to facilitate sexual assault, particularly Rohypnol and GHB.
For thousands of years, human beings have partied all night long without the aid of such extreme intoxicants.
