Psychoactive Club Drugs & Inhalants

This video examines drugs that are popular on the current drug scene, e.g., "rave clubs," private parties, and individual use. The first section of the video focuses on psychedelics such as MDMA ("ecstasy"), GHB and GBL ("blue nitro"), LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, peyote, and ketamine. The second part of the video concentrates on inhalants such as nitrous oxide, volatile solvents (glue, gasoline), and to a lesser extent, volatile nitrites. The video emphasizes the reasons these drugs are used; the unpredictability of the response to psychedelic drugs especially when used together with other psychoactive drugs; the physiological and psychological effects of MDMA, GHB, and other psychedelics especially on mood and memory; the continued use and health consequences of nitrous oxide and petroleum-based inhalants; the impact of inhalants on the lungs, heart, liver, kidneys, blood cells, and brain; treatment options for bad "trips," overdoses, and polydrug use.
