What Preventionists Need to Know About Synthetic Drugs
 Location: Santa Fe
Full
05-15-2018

Synthetic drugs are often marketed as designer. These drugs are created as a way to sell substances that produce highs similar to illegal substances and can often be bought legally because of the drug classification system the United States uses. This workshop will explore the range of synthetic drugs of abuse, such as synthetic marijuana (Spice or K2), synthetic stimulants (Bath Salts), synthetic opioids (Fentanyl), as well as hallucinogens such as MDMA and its variants. We’ll look at how these drugs are manufactured, legal issues, who is using them and how often, and what effects they are having on users. Neurological functions of these drugs and behavioral effects will be discussed, as well as adverse events (e.g., ER admissions) and other negative consequences that are occurring. Finally, we’ll discuss options for prevention programs.
