drug addiction

LSD is a hallucinogenic drug and can be dangerous in even small doses.

LSD is available as crystals or as a liquid which is used to impregnate paper, known as blotter. There may be patterns or designs or even cartoon characters printed on the paper. These can be especially dangerous for small children who may be encouraged to eat or handle them.

It is also easily absorbed through the skin or eyes.
It may also be in liquid form in a small container such as an eye drop container.
It can be formed into a gel or mixed into tablets and offered for sale as ecstasy.
It only takes 50 micrograms for a 'hit'. Effects will usually be felt in 10 to 20 minutes and can last 6 to 12 hours.
It cannot be smoked as it is destroyed by heat.

Symptoms of abuse:

  • Dilated pupils.
  • Rise in pulse rate.
  • Rise in temperature.
  • Rise in blood pressure.
  • Increase in saliva/drooling.
  • Profuse sweating.
  • Sleeplessness.
  • Anxiety.
  • Delusions.
  • Visual disturbances/hallucinations.
  • Disorientation.
  • Fear/paranoia.

Special Dangers.

This drug can cause severe psychological trauma and distress, even with low doses. Using blotter squares, it is almost impossible to know what dose is being taken, as it can vary between 50 -150 micrograms, therefore it can be much stronger from one use to another.
