The substances 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. Teenage brains are still developing, so if they abuse club drugs like LSD, brain damage can occur. Most club drugs are addictive — mentally, physically, or both and some teenagers have even died from abusing party drugs. Some examples of club drugs include cocaine, meth, ketamine and ecstasy.
