Drugs and Alcohol Addiction is a universal problem. There are several ways to overcome it.
Ketamine is an anesthetic with hallucinogenic and painkilling properties. It has the ability to separate perception from sensation. This drug is mainly found in veterinary use. Its painkilling character affects people in different ways.
Ketamine has structural relation to PCP or Angel Dust. Though the drug is occasionally administered to people, it is more commonly used for pet surgery. Also known as 'special K' or 'vitamin K,' Ketamine can cause hallucinations. Users will be completely separated from their physical bodies and its limitations.
The drug usually comes in the form of a white powder. It is prepared by evaporating the liquid from the legitimate pharmaceutical product and pulverizing the residue into a powder. All of the ketamine abused has been diverted from licit sources. Theft of veterinary clinics is the most frequently reported source of illicit ketamine.
Ketamine is commonly snorted by abusers. Intra-muscular injection is also a widely used method. Injected Ketamine takes 1-5 minutes and snorted ketamine takes 5-15 minutes to take effect.
