Transcript

  • 1. Acids and Hallucigens By Micaela and Allyson
  • 2. Hallucinogens• Hallucinogens are psychedelic drugs, meaning they alter your perception of the world, your emotions, and your brain functions. • These drugs act on serotonin, an important chemical in your central nervous system, altering your thought processes, mood, perception, and your five senses.
  • 3. Other Names and Make-Up • Drugs like PCP, mescaline, peyote, ecstasy, and even marijuana are considered hallucinogens because they can cause you to hallucinate—you may see things that aren’t really there. Two of the most widely used hallucinogens in North America are acid and Psilocybin or mushrooms. • Made from a fungus called ergot
