Toxicology & Controlled Substances
What is a controlled substance?
Examples of Controlled Substances:
- Morphine is a narcotic pain reliever for severe pain, but not for regular use.
- It can become addictive if used regularly or in high amounts, potentially leading to overdose and death.
- When used properly it can help relieve severe pain.
2. Just like cigarettes, marijuana can become addictive to some people or can become a compulsive act to others. Too much can cause the same damaging effects as cigarettes, such as chronic lung problems, cancer, and can even produce psychosis.
3. With proper use, this substance can help relieve the effects of cancer, nausea, pain, muscle spasms, weight loss, seizures, HIV/AIDS, and Glaucoma.
- Ecstasy is a synthetic, psychoactive drug used as a psychedelic to senses-enhancing stimulant.
- It can become addictive and is potentially harmful to one's mental and physical health. It can produce confusion, depression, loss of sleep, a loss in control of body temperature, and many other potentially lethal side effects. Even withdrawal from the drug can result in depression, fatigue, loss of appetite, and a struggle to concentrate.
- Ecstasy is a illegal drug that is not permitted in any way for medical use or in any beneficial way.
