A drug can be defined as any substance which, when taken into the body, alters the body’s function either physically and/or psychologically. Drugs may be legal (e.g. alcohol, caffeine and tobacco) or illegal (e.g. cannabis, ecstasy, cocaine, and heroin).
Psychoactive drugs affect the central nervous system and alter a person’s mood, thinking, and behavior. They can be divided into four categories: depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens and ‘other’.


Stimulants are a form of ‘fun’ drugs

The effect a drug has one a person will vary depending on the person’s characteristics such as size, gender, diet, fitness, age, health, the drug itself, and how it is ingested.
