"Club Drugs" is a general term for a number of illicit drugs, primarily synthetic, that are most commonly encountered at nightclubs and "raves." The drugs include MDMA, Ketamine, GHB, GBL, Rohypnol, LSD, PCP, methamphetamine, and, to a lesser extent, cocaine and psilocybin mushrooms. The drugs have gained popularity primarily due to the false perception that they are not as harmful, nor as addictive, as mainstream drugs such as heroin. One of the dangers associated with this emerging drug market is that drug quality may vary significantly, and substitute drugs often are sold when suppliers are unable to provide the drug currently in demand. This has been a significant problem with Rohypnol, because the illicit supply has been limited and any number of "look-alike" pharmaceutical products could be sold in its place. Since club drug users usually do not have a steady distribution network to depend upon, they unwittingly risk taking dangerous combinations of drugs. Not only can this lead to a greater risk of drug overdose, the lack of knowledge regarding what drug was ingested can complicate the task of emergency response personnel. Reports from the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) indicate that the use of club drugs, most notably the synthetic ones, is increasing significantly. The number of nationwide hospital emergency room mentions, particularly those involving MDMA and GHB, have more than quadrupled from 1994 to 1998. This report provides an overview of the drugs primarily encountered at raves and nightclubs, with a discussion of the drug sources, pharmacological effects, prices, and scheduling.
