In these two videos, we cover two broad drug classes that have been on arisen to be of particular concern in the past two decades: Hallucinogens and New Psychoactive Substances. These two classes cover a sometimes bewildering range of drugs. For each we examines the major categories of drugs that comprise the drug class, and how they are consumed. The lectures also cover topics such as withdrawal syndromes, the toxicity of these substances, mortality, their effects upon each of the major organ systems, as well as upon mental health.
