You can subdivde
drugs in 7 groups: Opiates
Opitae are drugs which are made in a chemical reaktion
with Opium (For instance Morphin and Heroin). Morphin is a very heavy
In 1898 Heroin got introduzed. In this year the government didn’t know that
Heroin can make people addict to it. But after some month it got interdicted.
If you take Heroin you cause a wave of
elation, but on the other side you fall into a state of deep causualness.
The withdrawl symptoms: twitch of feet and hands, anxiety
states, sleeplessness, sickness, cramps, regurgitate, diarrhea and fever
In the 70’s some scientists isolated the so-called
Endorphines that are Opiates which naturally occur in the human brain.
The most famous drug from this group is Ecstasy (or XTC).
If you take XTC you get a sense of being, a sympathy for everyone in your
environment, more energy and in some causes you get hallucinations.
The withdrawl symptoms: Sickness, losing controll, dehydration
(losing liqour), losing long-term memory, losing weight. In the XTC- tabletts
from Easteurope some scientists found a impurity up to 10 per cent.
Some other stimulants are cocaine and amphetamines. Crack
is a special form of cocaine. It’s a composite of baking powder and cocaine.
You smoke it.
In childish hyperactivity amphetamines effect quietend, but
when adults take amphetamines you see where the name “Speed” is from. The
effect: brighten temper and you need no sleep and in some causes you get
talkatively and fussy. If you
take cocaine every day or regular you get symptombs like acute schizophrenia.
In the 60’s these drugs were very popular and rife. LSD
(Lysergsäurediethylamid) and Meskalin (from the Peyoltcactus) and many more.
Phencyclidin ,in the english slang as “Angel Dust” and “Rocket Fuel” known, has
not the same effect like LSD. The effects of LSD: euphoria, intensifaction and
overlapping of senses (coulors can be listen and sounds can be seen). The effects
of Angel Dust: gettig a feeling of disengagement and minimize the pain.
Some Mushrooms (or toadstools) which are in the nederlands
domiciled contain the active agent. Psilocybin which is a hallucinogen drug
too. One third of the Discovisitors eat this mushroom and many people died.
Cannabis isn’t a drug! It’s a plant (Cannabis sativa). The
drugs which are made from Cannabis are marijuana (or pot) and Hashish (or
hash). Marijuana is the rubbed blossom, the leafs and small branches. Hash is
the pooled plantpitch. Both
can be smoked. You can eat and drink Marijuana too (In form of a tea, biscuits
The effect: relaxation, faster heartbeat, slowdown of time,
intensifaction of the senses.
Normaly Cannabis isn’t dangerous but if you smoke it before
you drive a car or else it can be dangerous. If you smoke it, the lung can get
damaged but if you smoke a cigarette it has the same effect. The ingredient is
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). Since centurys Cannabis is a medicine for sickness,
attacks and pain. Nowdays Cannabis is illegal, but Cannabis isn’t only a drug!
Cannabis is a plant from which we can get fibres and make clothes and other
things out of them. The production of cotton is more expensive than the
production of Cannabis and Cannabis need only 10% of the water which cotton
need. Cannabis is less pretentious.
So maybe it is clever to legalise Cannabis!
But I have no mind !!!!
The most abused drug from this group are the barbiturate.
They had been taken by anxiety states and sleeplessness. The effect is like the
effect of alcohol.
The withdrawl symptoms: twiching , sleeplessness, anxiety
states, cramps and delirium.
Another seditive is Benzodiazepine (Valium or Librium).

fruits in a fermantation.
