Illegal Drugs

It’s simple: If you feel different, you drive different. Most illegal drugs have two primary effects on the nervous system — they either speed up or slow down nerve responses. In terms of driving, the only aspect illegal drugs can improve is your probability of dying behind the wheel, along with the risk of seriously harming or killing others.

When compared with prescription drugs, illegal drugs have a higher potential for abuse and addiction. Whether it is a depressant, sedative, hallucinogen or stimulant, using an illegal drug can result in physical and/or psychological dependence that not only harms the user but also puts their loved ones and community at risk.

The bottom line: Never get behind the wheel when under the influence of illegal drugs.
