The drugs commonly taken at raves and dance parties are known as club drugs, designer drugs, or party drugs. Many of them are synthesized specifically as energy boosters for party environments. These parties are known for their loud, pulsating music and flashing lights. Unfortunately, teenagers often do not consider the life-threatening consequences of designer drug abuse.
