The different types of drugs are identified in three basic categories namely “depressants”, “stimulants” and “hallucinogens”.

Drugs are widely used by doctors and hospitals, in required proportions for the medical treatment which is useful for the body. Legally drugs are allowed to be taken only on prescription, but today drugs are illegally taken by many just to enjoy the after effect which is more appealing. Today teenagers, adults are the main group of population, which are highly drug addicted.
