WHAT ARE HALLUCINOGENS?
ALSO KNOWN AS PSYCHEDELICS
Hallucinogens are mind-altering drugs that affect the central nervous system (CNS), including thinking, awareness, and the five senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching).
Hallucinogens are different from other drugs that affect the central nervous system in that they can cause people to see objects that aren't real!
It's like thinking you see a ling of dogs walking down the street when there's not dog!
Hallucinogens can also make users experience feelings that aren't real. People may say: "I can see sounds and hear colors!"
Some of these changes can be scary.
ALL HALLUCINOGENS ARE ILLEGAL
Except those with Federal approval such as peyote (pay-Oh-tee) which is used by some Native American churches as part of their religious ceremonies.
