Drug abuse involving hallucinogens has its negative and sometimes disturbing side effects. Heart beat may increase, blood pressure rises, the user becomes agitated, body temperature fluctuates leading to sweating and/or chills, anxiety, panic, hallucinations, paranoia, dizziness, impaired coordination, nausea, and vomiting are common symptoms. A user who experiences most or all of these negative side effects has what is called a “bad trip.”

Bad trips lead to severe panic and dangerous behavior. The user feels an uncontrollable need to get away from a distressing hallucination and may resort to running into traffic or jumping out of a window to do so. This often leads to serious injury or death.

Driving while under the influence of hallucinogens is very dangerous. The user may see objects in the roadway that aren’t really there or think a car that is fast approaching is miles away. This again leads to accidents, serious injury, and death.
