The use of designer drugs such as LSD, Ecstasy, and methamphetamines is unfortunately widespread among young adults, particularly in club or party settings. These drugs are especially risky because they are made in batches in individual home labs, so there is no way to tell how much of any dangerous substance was used in their creation. Readers learn the risks associated with using many of these designer drugs. The accessible text, complemented by full-color photographs and in-depth sidebars, gives them the facts they need to make safe choices.
