Synthetic/Designer Drugs

Synthetic drugs, a term that is often used interchangeably with the term designer drugs, are a growing class of man-made and/or chemically changed substances that are developed to mimic the effects of illegal drugs.

Designer drugs are substances in which the chemicals are altered. Both of these terms refer primarily to substances that exist to skirt current laws that control the use/sale/trafficking of illicit drugs.
