Brewing “Legal” Drugs

To understand synthetic marijuana and other synthetic drugs, one has to know what a “designer drug” is.

A designer drug is a synthetic version of an illegal drug. Its chemical composition is slightly altered to avoid classification as illegal. It is essentially an experiment by an underground chemist to create a new “legal” drug.

When law enforcement catches up to the synthetic drug and outlaws it, underground chemists create yet another altered version that now escapes “illegal” classification. And so the cycle repeats.

Observes World Day Against Drugs

For the 2014 United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, on June 26, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World coordinated more than 200 drug awareness events, distributing the Truth About Drugs educational materials in 28 countries on six continents, and bringing the anti-drug message to some 250,000 people.
