Cocaine

Not all cocaine looks the same. It comes in several different shapes and forms
and is packaged differently according to the quantity being shipped or sold.

Because ecstasy tablets are manufactured illegally, they are
found in many different colors and stamped with varying logos.

The problem with identifying heroin by sight is that it looks like many household products.

Heroin

What Are the Short-Term Effects of Heroin Use?

Soon after injection (or inhalation), heroin crosses the blood-brain barrier. In the brain, heroin is converted to morphine and binds rapidly to opioid receptors.  Abusers typically report feeling a surge of pleasurable sensation, a "rush."

The intensity of the rush is a function of how much drug is taken and how rapidly the drug enters the brain and binds to the natural opioid receptors.  Heroin is particularly addictive because it enters the brain so rapidly.

With heroin, the rush is usually accompanied by a warm flushing of the skin, dry mouth,
and a heavy feeling in the extremities, which may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and severe itching.

After the initial effects, abusers usually will be drowsy for several hours. Mental function is clouded by heroin's effect on the central nervous system.
Cardiac function slows. Breathing is also severely slowed, sometimes to the point of death.

Heroin overdose is a particular risk on the street, where the amount and  urity of the drug cannot be accurately known.

Marijuana

Marijuana appears differently depending on its stage of development, ranging from the growing plant to the rolled-up joint.

What Happens If You Smoke Marijuana?

Some people feel nothing at all when they smoke marijuana. Others may feel relaxed or high.
Sometimes marijuana makes users feel thirsty and very hungry - an effect called "the munchies."

Some users can get bad effects from marijuana. They may suffer sudden feelings of anxiety and have paranoid thoughts.
This is more likely to happen when a more potent variety of marijuana is used.

  REHABS

Please be very cautious when admitting a “Patient” to a rehabilitation centre. This applies to both state and private “REHABS”. Due to the scourge of drug peddlers and those who fall prey to this evil “DRUG ADDICTION”, we have noticed that any Tom, Dick or Harry now creates drug Rehab Centres in almost every nook and cranny of the country. Obviously they (The Rehab Fellows) have found this to be an innovative yet devious and immoral method of raking in huge amounts of money with no proper remedial  services being provided.  Therefore, we strongly urge members of the community to be very cautious and to have the Rehab (any Rehab) checked out prior to having any “Patient” admitted or referred to a “REHAB CENTRE”.  Nowadays, most of these “REHABS” have more illegal drugs, alcohol etc.available inside their premises than on the streets!
