WHAT EXACTLY IS KETAMINE?
Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic with hallucinogenic properties. It distorts perceptions of sight and sound, leaving the user feeling disconnected and powerless. It is a short-acting injectable anesthetic used in both humans and animals. It is known as a “dissociative anesthetic” because it causes patients to feel detached from their pain and surroundings.
Ketamine can cause sedation (feeling calm and relaxed), immobility, pain relief, and amnesia (no memory of events while under the influence of the drug).
It is abused because it causes dissociative sensations and hallucinations. Ketamine has also been used to aid in the facilitation of sexual assault.
WHERE DID IT COME FROM?
Commercial ketamine production is carried out in a number of nations, including the US. The majority of the ketamine that is smuggled into the United States from Mexico is distributed illegally in the country after being diverted or stolen from reliable sources, particularly veterinary clinics.
Ketamine is rarely sold on the street; instead, it is typically distributed among friends and acquaintances, most frequently at raves, nightclubs, and private gatherings.

Additionally, this medication can make you feel sick.
What effect does it have on the mind?
Ketamine can cause hallucinations. It distorts perceptions of sight and sound, leaving the user feeling disconnected and powerless. A “Special K” trip is touted as superior to LSD or PCP because its hallucinatory effects are relatively brief, lasting only 30 to 60 minutes as opposed to several hours.
• “K-land” refers to ketamine-related experiences or ketamine-related effects (refers to a mellow & colorful experience)
• “K-hole” (a term used to describe an out-of-body, near-death experience)
• “Baby food” (users sink in to blissful, infantile inertia)
• “God” (users believe they have met their maker)
The onset of effects is rapid and often occurs within a few minutes of taking the drug, though it is slightly slower when taken orally.
Ketamine has also been linked to agitation, depression, cognitive difficulties, unconsciousness, and amnesia.
How is it mishandled?
Along with other “club drugs,” ketamine has grown in popularity among teenagers and young adults at dance clubs and “raves.” Commercially produced ketamine is available as a powder or liquid. Pharmaceutical ketamine can also be converted into powdered ketamine by evaporating the liquid using hot plates, warming trays, or microwave ovens. This produces crystals, which are then ground into powder.
Which drugs have similar side effects?
Other hallucinogenic drugs that can cause hallucinations include LSD, PCP, and mescaline. Several drugs, including GHB, Rohypnol®, and other depressants, are also used to facilitate sexual assault due to their amnesiac or sedative properties.
