Terminology and Information on Drugs

This publication is intended to give a brief description of the drugs most frequently manufactured / processed and/or abused, as well as definitions of the most relevant scientific terms used in this context. It is by no means exhaustive, nor is it meant to replace any of the more comprehensive textbooks and encyclopedias on drugs of abuse. Rather, it is an attempt on the part of the Scientific Section to provide to the interested reader some basic, generally accepted information on selected drugs of abuse, their abuse patterns, pharmacological effects and medical use, if any.
