Which drug does the most harm?
Check out a study Made by "The Lancet".
From most to least dangerous, the ten most dangerous are:
- Barbiturates - popular slang names include yellow jackets, reds, blues, Amy's, and rainbows.
- Street Methadone
- Ketamine aka Special K.
- Benzodiazepines - a family of sedative drugs.
- Amphetamines -aka greenies
- Buprenorphine - aka bupe or subbies.
The remaining drugs they checked in this study are listed in this order:
- Cannabis - includes marijuana aka weed.
- Solvents - substances that can be inhaled, such as glue
- 4-MTA - similar effects to ecstasy.
- Methylphenidate - Ritalin substitute.
- Anabolic steroids
- GHB - the date rape drug.
- Alkyl nitrates - poppers.
- Khat - an amphetamine
In the end I guess every drug use situation in unique and the harm done to the individual and the family can only be measured by them be the substance heroin or coffee.
