5 Most Obnoxious Substances People Abuse
Addiction can take numerous forms, and there are weird ways in which people get a “high”, right from
abusing substances like bath salts, flakka, Spice to mephedrone, etc. In fact, new substances keep on
adding to the list of the drugs being abused, especially when certain substance is banned.
One cannot but be baffled and astounded to see some of those, which are definitely not quotidian even
in the parleys of the deadliest of addicts. Here, we take a look at five such bizarre substances that addicts
1. Psychoactive Toad: It
is a name used for toads
from which addicts
substances belonging to
the family of bufotoxins.
The skin or poison of the
toads may produce
when ingested because it
bufotenin, the family of
normally milk the glands
of the toad on a mirror
and let it dry. When
consumed orally or smoked, it produces an effect like a hallucinogenic drug, which could last up to eight
2. Nutmeg: Strange to have this on the list, but the spice that seemed so innocuous and adorns the
kitchen racks is also classified as a hallucinogenic material. In the United States, it is mostly used as a spice
but there are several other uses as well, the most significant being a substance of abuse. Addicts swallow
a spoonful of it or mix it with a drink and gulp. Hallucinations caused due to this can stay for up to seven
hours. At times, minor effects can remain up to 72 hours.
3. Scopolamine: The drug, when abused, gives the effects of a hallucinogen. Addicts who abuse
scopolamine obtain it from plants like henbane, jimson weed, angel’s trumpets, etc. It is usually found in
certain medicines for treating motion sickness, gastrointestinal spasms, and irritable bowel syndrome.
People can overdose and chance is high of an addiction too.
4. Jenkem: This is perhaps the most bizarre drug, but its existence can be a rumor also. So far, no case of
jenkem abuse has been reported in America. Supposedly, the addict inhales the methane that emanates
from human feces and urine. Those addicted to it are said to get a high by sniffing profusely.
5. Freon: It is reported to be one of the worst highs one can derive. It is the same Freon which is found
in air conditioners. It is capable of producing hallucinations. The addicts release the safety valve on the air
conditioner and collect the released Freon in a bag. They then directly inhale it from the bag. It is classified
as an inhalant and people get a significant high which lasts for several hours.
