When we talk about 'Drugs' on this site, we are referring to any substance you might take to alter your perception, mood or feelings. Not all drugs are illegal, for example: alcohol; cigarettes; solvents and drugs prescribed for you by your doctor. Even legal drugs can be dangerous and addictive. Just because a drug is legal, it doesn't mean it's safe!
