Street Drug Tests
Street drugs are easily attainable in our society. Millions of people use uppers, downers, and/or hallucinogens to change their senses and the way they perceive the environment around them. Many people specifically look for street drugs for their easy highs and then once they have built a tolerance, users often search for them just to satisfy an addiction.
Other than marijuana in some states, street drugs are illegal and are unsafe for both the user’s health and the people around him/her. The litany of available street drugs can be taken in different ways and have different effects from person to person. However, there is a trend of general effects that are explained below:
