Drug Facts

GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate) was once sold in health food stores as a performance enhancing additive to body builder formulas. Although rumored that GHB stimulates muscle growth, this claim has never been proven. GHB is a central nervous system depressant that is abused for its intoxicating effects. In 1990, the FDA banned the use of GHB except under the supervision of a physician because of many reports of severe, uncontrollable side effects. Slang terms for GHB include Grievous Bodily Harm, Easy Lay, Gook, Gamma 10, Liquid X, Liquid E, Liquid G, Georgia Home Boy, Soap, Scoop, Salty Water, Somatomax, G-riffick, Cherry Meth, Fantasy, Organic Quaalude, Nature's Quaalude, and Zonked.
More than seven percent of the population ages 18 years and older -- nearly 13.8 million Americans -- have problems with drinking, including 8.1 million people who suffer from alcoholism.
The use of alcohol and other drugs can affect judgment in terms of physically protecting oneself against AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Every year thousands more young people are diagnosed with AIDS (the number rose 43 percent between 1992 and 1994) and nearly three million teenagers—one out of every six—are infected with an STD that could lead to serious illness or sterility, which would leave them unable to have children in the future. Anyone who shares a needle is also at risk of contracting AIDS by the exchange of blood with an infected user, no matter what their age or history of drug use. Approximately one-third of AIDS cases have been traced to intravenous drug use—usually of heroin and anabolic steroids, but crank and cocaine can also be injected. Based on a questionnaire by the CDC, almost one quarter of the teenagers who use steroids also share needles.
Researchers are studying possible links between inhalant abuse and social problems such as violent behavior and run-ins with the authorities. Inhalant Abuse" report state that "adverse socioeconomic conditions, a history of childhood abuse, poor grades, and dropping out of school all are associated with inhalant abuse. Research shows that twelve- and thirteen-year-old inhalant users "were more than twice as likely to have been in a serious fight at school" in the last year than youths their age who did not use inhalants. They were also "six times as likely to have stolen or tried to steal anything worth more than $50." Furthermore, the tendency to abuse illegal drugs was much higher among twelve- and thirteen-year-old inhalant users than it was for nonusers in the same age group.
