Club drugs, also known as rave drugs, or party drugs, are psychoactive drugs which are often used in dance clubs, bars, and parties. The common club drugs include Lysergic Acid Diethylamide or LSD (also called Blotter, Dots, and Acid), Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (more commonly known as ecstasy, X, E, Love Drug, and Hug Beans), Rohypnol (also known as Roofies), Gamma-hydroxybutyrate (the other names are Liquid Ecstasy, G, and Soap), and Ketamine (also called Vitamin K, Jet, and Special K).
Although each specific drug has a certain effect, these recreational drugs are taken to enhance sensory stimulation and enhance sensuality. Users are often after their euphoric and intoxicating effect, and ability to lower inhibition. However the side effects of club drugs include increase in blood pressure, dehydration, confusion, hallucination, delusion, panic attacks, and addiction.
