Drugs (breaking them down) - What are you really taking

<Reader Disclaimer : I do not condone the use of illegal or illicit drugs, this is merely a study of additives in illegal drugs in the U.S.  I am putting up this post strictly as an informative piece to the reader.  With that said I hope you enjoy the article>

     Have you ever wondered what was in illegal drugs?  I'm sure many people have.  The U.S. is the number one consumer of illegal drugs.

But first here are some statistics:
     Marijuana still remains widely popular among Americans, with over 102 million Americans (41 percent of the U.S. population) having used it during their lifetimes, 26 million (10 percent) having used it in the past year, and over 15 million (6 percent) admitting that they use it regularly. (By contrast, fewer than 15 percent of adults have ever tried cocaine, the second most ‘popular’ illicit drug, and fewer than 2 percent have ever tried heroin) (2009 study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services)

For who they are and what drugs they are using :

     What's Really in Cocaine

   Some Common Ingredients:
  • Levamisole
  • Acetyl-salicylic Acid
  • Glass
  • Tetracaine
  • Powdered Milk

     How and Why it's Cut
     Every dealer uses cutting agents to dilute cocaine.  Also popular are prescription drugs like veterinary de-worming medication and an anesthetic.  Less frequently used, but more dangerous are glass fragments found in some adulterated cocaine.  These shards make the coke sparkle and cause microscopic cuts in the nose.

     What Happens in Your Body 
     The cuts in the nose produced by the tiny glass fragments in impure cocaine permit the drug enter the bloodstream and thus, the brain more rapidly.  Just 50 mg of this adulterated coke is enough to paralyze the central nervous system and cause respiratory failure.  Levamisole, the anti-parasitic drug used to treat worm infestations in animals, destroy white blood cells and can cause serious illness or death; it can even rot the flesh.  Acetyl-salicylic acid (the active ingredient in aspirin), also used to dilute cocaine, can cause a gastrointestinal rupture.

     A gram of cocaine costs between $50 and $115.  A kilo of coke may be 60% pure, but the average purity of a gram is only around 35% (That's alot of additive or cut when you get coke a gram at a time, just imagine whats in it, some of the cut could be some of the ingredients listed above)  

 What's Really in Crystal Meth 

Some Common Ingredients: 
  • Baking Powder
  • Citric Acid
  • Fructose
  • Magnesium Sulfate
  • Lidocaine 

     How and Why it's Cut 
     Police almost never find pure crystal meth.  The white crystals made in meth labs are usually a mixture of the narcotic ephedrine and common household items such as baking powder, citric acid, and drain cleaner.  Substances like magnesium sulfate and fructose can also be added to crystal meth to expand volume.

     What Happens in Your Body 
     Some of the cutting agents can have a devastating effect on the body.  Once they enter the bloodstream, Baking powder, citric acid, and fructose can trigger blood clots that cause heart attacks and strokes. They can also lead to the formation of painful urinary stones.  Magnesium sulfate may lead to cardiac arrhythmia, breathing difficulties, and a significant drop in blood pressure.

     Crystal Meth  
     This drug, which is made from methamphetamine's and cutting agents, goes for anywhere from $80 for 1/8 of an ounce to $3000 an ounce, depending on quality and supply.  Purity generally varies between 20% and 80%

What's Really in Marijuana 
Some Common Ingredients: 
  • Sugar
  • Sand 
  • Hair Spray
  • Talcum Powder
  • Lead

     How and Why it's Cut 
     Hair spray can be added to pot so it will shine more, while lead, talcum powder (made of magnesium and silicon), sand, and sugar can be used to increase the weight of weed. In fact, narcotics agents have been finding more and more chemical agents added to marijuana over the last few years.

     What Happens in Your Body 
     The smoke tastes bitter and there's a scratchy feeling in your throat that causes you to cough extra hard, the side effects of marijuana that's been adulterated with foreign substances are immediately noticeable.    Long-term consumption can be fatal because the burning of sugar, lead, hair spray, and talcum powder causes the formation of extremely carcinogenic substances that go directly into the lungs when the smoke is in haled.

     There are basically two types of cannabis drugs: the dried buds of the cannabis plant (marijuana) and pressed plant resin (hash)
