Drug Dictionary - Words to Know

Its hard to keep up with drugs talk/street talk but here's some useful terms to know that are related to drug use in the UK:

Word:Description:
Addiction
(say: uh-dik-shun)
A person has an addiction when he or she becomes dependent on or craves a drug all of the time
Depressant
(say: dih-preh-sunt)
A depressant is a drug that slows a person down. Doctors prescribe depressants to help people be less angry, anxious, or tense. Depressants relax muscles and make people feel sleepy, less stressed out, or like their head is stuffed. Some people may use these drugs illegally to slow themselves down and help bring on sleep - especially after using various kinds of stimulants. (See below.)
Hallucinogen
(say: huh-loo-sun-uh-jun)
A hallucinogen is a drug, such as LSD, that changes a person's mood and makes him or her see, hear, or think things that aren't really there.
HighA high is the feeling that drug users want to get when they take drugs. There are many types of highs, including a very happy or spacey feeling or one that makes a person believe that he or she has special powers, such as the ability to fly or to see into the future.
Inhalant
(say: in-hay-lunt)
An inhalant, such as glue or gasoline, is sniffed or "huffed" to give the user an immediate rush. Inhalants produce a quick feeling of being drunk - followed by sleepiness, staggering, dizziness, and confusion.
Narcotic
(say: nar-kah-tik)
A narcotic dulls the body's senses (leaving a person less aware and alert and feeling carefree) and relieves pain. Narcotics can cause a person to sleep, fall into a stupor, have convulsions, and even slip into a coma. Certain narcotics - such as codeine - are legal if given by doctors to treat pain. Heroin is an illegal narcotic because it is has dangerous side effects and is very addictive.
Stimulant
(say: stim-yuh-lunt)
A stimulant speeds up a person's body and brain. Stimulants, such as methamphetamines and cocaine, have the opposite effect of depressants. Usually, stimulants make a person feel high and energized. When the effects of a stimulant wear off, the person will feel tired or sick.
