Ecstasy and Other Club Drugs by Tara Koellhoffer, Ronald J. Brogan


Ecstasy and Other Club Drugs by Tara Koellhoffer, Ronald J. Brogan

Millions of teens and young adults attend raves and dance clubs every year, and drug use is rampant at many of these parties. The best known of the so-called club drugs used often at raves is ecstasy, but there are many others continually being introduced to the rave scene. Several of them can also be slipped into drinks for use as date-rape drugs - victims are incapacitated and unaware that they have been drugged. Although law enforcement has been attempting to crack down on the use of club drugs, many teens still don't believe that club drugs are dangerous. Ecstasy and Other Club Drugs examines some of the best-known club drugs, highlighting their effects on the mind and body and the dangers associated with their use.
