Dear Erowid Readers: We're a small nonprofit that runs the top drug information website in the world. We have only 4 staff but serve 12 million users, and have costs like any big website: servers, power, office space, programs, and staff. To protect our independence, we don't run ads or take government funds. If everyone reading this gave $3, our fundraising would be done today. If Erowid is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and ad-free another year!

“Legal Drugs of Abuse”. 
Emerg Med Rep. 2011 Sep 12;32(20):237-247.
[Introduction] Drugs of abuse are all too commonly seen in the emergency department (ED), no matter where your practice is located. Most emergency physicians are comfortable dealing with alcohol intoxication, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and other common “street drugs.” This paper will discuss other common drugs that are perhaps less well known and considered “legal.” We will present five different drugs, including synthetic tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), “bath salts,” salvia, nutmeg, and canned air cleaners. Management of the intoxicants is discussed at the end.

Key Words: mephedrone, MDPV, 4-methylmethcathinone
