Any recreational drug–e.g., Ecstasy, Herbal Ecstasy, Rohypnol, GHB, ketamine, LSD, which has been used by high school and college students, and young adults in dance and night clubs and all-night rave parties.
In contrast to opiates and other families of drugs which are defined by their pharmacologic properties, club drugs are defined by the context in which they’re used, and thus differ according to country and social groups using the drugs. Given this difference, users may regard everything from phenethylamines (Ecstasy, 2C-B), to inhalants (nitrous oxide, amyl nitrite “poppers”), stimulants (amphetamines, cocaine), and hallucinogens (LSD, shrooms) as club drugs.
