Drugs – The other name of the darker side of world. These kinds of addictive drugs give a feeling of excitement and euphoria for a certain period but actually ruin the health to the extreme. This list is a brief description of ten deadly and dangerous drugs around the world.

10. Hashish:

More commonly known as Hash, it is generated from Cannabis sativa plant which is generally smoked using methods such as joints and pipes called bongs or hookahs. It increases pulse rate, decreases blood pressure, causes bloodshot eyes and increases appetite. However, it is the effects on the brain that cause the feelings of calm euphoria and gentle elation that many users enjoy. Regular use of Hashish can decrease memory and learning abilities, altered patterns of growth and sexual development, bronchitis, emphysema and even lung cancer.

9. Caffeine and Nicotine:

The most common sources of caffeine and nicotine are coffee, tea leaves, cocoa beans, cola, and carbonated drinks. This dangerous drug affects your mood, stamina, the cerebral vascular system, and gastric and colonic activity and even psychotic breaks with reality. It produces a physical addiction by affecting the brain’s chemistry and a psychological addiction because users become dependent on the confident, euphoric feeling it creates to help them cope with the stresses of daily life.

8. Opium:

A sense of  calm drowsiness, feeling of euphoria, content, safety and security, confidence, and general well-being and satisfaction , this is all about Opium. However, this drug causes sleepiness, concentration difficulties, blurry vision, poor night vision, slowed breathing and slight anxiety. Stomach side effects may include nausea, vomiting, constipation and poor appetite.

7. Marijuana:

This dangerous drug is a psychoactive substance which is also known as pot, weed, grass, ganja and skunk. Regular use of marijuana naturally leads to an addiction. Sudden withdrawal, after using it for a long time, can cause irritability, loss of appetite, sleep deprivation, anxiety, etc. Some researches have suggested a link between marijuana and anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies and even schizophrenia.

6. Benzodiazepine:

Benzodiazepines are the most commonly used anti anxiety drugs because they rapidly reduce the symptoms of anxiety, and they don’t have to be taken on an ongoing basis in order to be effective. Oversedation is a dose-related extension of the sedative/hypnotic effects of benzodiazepines. Symptoms include drowsiness, poor concentration, incoordination, muscle weakness, dizziness and mental confusion. When benzodiazepines are taken at night as sleeping pills, sedation may persist the next day as “hangover” effects, particularly with slowly eliminated preparations.

5. LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide):

LSD is a semi-synthetic drug made of lysergic acid. Also known as Lysergide or LSD-25, it is a colorless, tasteless, odorless, crystalline substance which is soluble in water or alcohol. When you use LSD, your senses of space, distance, and time become altered. People say they “hear” colors or “see” sounds, but effects are unpredictable. Bad reactions can occur even with the first use and a user may have flashbacks, where a person experiences the feelings of a bad trip even after the drug wears off. LSD affects judgment and behavior may get out of control. The user may find himself or herself in a dangerous situation.

4. Methadone:

This substance is used in drug addiction rehab and affects the body in ways similar to morphine. Methadone is reported to have certain effects on the heart, primarily to do with heart rate, arrhythmia, or prolonging the QT interval. These effects are more common when too high a dose is prescribed or when moving to a significantly higher dose. For those taking 80mg daily or less, this is rarely a concern.

3. Barbiturates:

Barbiturates are class of drugs known as sedative-hypnotics, which generally describes their sleep-inducing and anxiety-decreasing effects. Barbiturates are highly addictive and there is a serious risk of overdose. They can also be fatal when mixed with alcohol, tranquillizers or heroin. Heavy users are also at risk of pneumonia and bronchitis.

2. Cocaine:

This drug delivers an intensity of pleasure – and despair – beyond the bounds of normal human experience. Cocaine actually blocks the dopamine from leaving the gaps between the brain’s neurons, and this leads to a buildup of dopamine; the brain then remains stimulated. Some certain effects of cocaine overdose are intense chest pain, sweating, rapid breathing, vomiting, rapid pulse and hallucination.

1. Heroin:

One οf tһе deadliest drug that can f**k you right up is heroin. Pure heroin is dangerous enough, but when diluted or “cut” with additives, the drug becomes even more dangerous. Sellers of heroin are hardly concerned with the health of their customers. The euphoria produced by that first hit rarely leads to a happy smiling person. The drug creates a profound degree of tolerance and physical dependence to the point at which addicts have only one purpose in life – to satisfy their heroin craving.
