Alcohol, drugs and tobacco

Other illegal drugs and your health

There is no safe level of drug use.

Illegal drugs are:

  • made in unsafe, unclean, hidden and uncontrolled places
  • mixed with different materials
  • often stored and carried in unusual ways.

This makes it very difficult for a person to know or measure how much of the drug they are taking, or what exactly is in it. This makes the drug's use more dangerous.

Types of illegal drugs include:

  • amphetamines
  • cannabis
  • cocaine
  • ecstasy
  • GHB
  • heroin
  • hallucinogens
  • LSD
  • methamphetamine.

To get the facts on illegal drugs go to the Drug and Alcohol Foundation website.
