Jaco is a research addict who loves to write about all the things he has learned.

Drugs are all around us. Most things in life are considered to be a drug. Coffee(caffeine), alcohol, pornography, sex, and even social networks are all considered to be drugs. Natural psychoactive substances are normally safe to consume, but synthetic drugs will always cause harm in one way or another. The following drugs was picked out by me, but all of them are ranked among the world's most deadliest drugs.

Fentanyl is an extremely strong sedative, and it is available for medical treatment. Fentanyl is reported to be 100 times stronger than morphine, and 50 times stronger than heroin. Fentanyl is primarily prescribed to patients with extreme cancer pain, but it's also used during surgeries. Fentanyl is responsible for many overdose cases, and it's therefore marked as an extremely dangerous drug. Some of the overdoses caused by fentanyl were caused by improper medical use.

Fentanyl's most common side effect is sedation. There are many unwanted side effects such as diarrhea, nausea, confusion, weakness and sweating. Rare effects include headaches, fatigue, dizziness, weight loss, hallucinations, hypertension, hyperventilation, and anxiety. Fentanyl is addictive, and users tend to take a bigger dose each time, which then leads to overdose and death. Respiratory depression is the most common cause of death. Fentanyl may be useful in surgeries, but that doesn't rule out the fact that fentanyl is extremely dangerous. It's easy to overdose from fentanyl, since it can be absorbed through the skin very rapidly.

Desomorphine also goes by the name of Krokodil. Krokodil is an opioid that is derived from codeine, and has similar effects to heroin. It should be noted that krokodil is produced at homes, and therefore krokodil may contain many different chemicals that is even more harmful than desomorphine. Krokodil acts very fast, and it has been reported that it could be up to 10 times stronger than morphine. The effects are very short-lived, and due to this, users tend to use krokodil very rapidly.

The main effect that krokodil produces is extreme sedation. Some users also claim to get hallucinations from krokodil. Krokodil may produce a heavenly feeling, but it's still life-threatening. Krokodil causes gangrene, which turns your skin to a dark green color, and also causes the texture of your skin to turn to a scale-like appearance. Other serious health effects include blood vessel damage, skin infections, pneumonia, meningitis, limb amputations, memory loss, liver damage, kidney damage, and even death. Krokodil is truly one intense, and dangerous drug.

N-BOMe may possibly be the most dangerous synthetic drug. Common names include "N-BOMB", and also "Smiles". The drug is a synthetic hallucinogen, and it is sometimes sold as LSD. There are many variations of N-BOMe, but almost all of them are abused. It is normally sold as a liquid, but it can also sometimes be sold as a powder. N-BOMe can be fatal from doses as small as a few grains of table salt. It's so toxic that law enforcement officers are required to wear masks, gloves, and glasses when they are handling the drug.

N-BOMe can be administered by injection, smoking, and also by taking it orally. The effects normally last around 10-12 hours. Typical effects include hallucinations, change in perception, euphoria, and many more effects. The effects are similar to LSD, but with much more negative effects. These negative effects include hypertension, agitation, aggression, seizures, and acute kidney injury. Overdose is very possible, but the main concern is self-harm. There have been many reports of users harming themselves while using N-BOMe.

All drugs are dangerous in one way or another, and there's always the possibility to overdose from them. The drugs listed above are very dangerous, and death is a real possibility if you decide to use them. Some things in life are not meant for humans, so it's best to stay far away from these drugs.

Would you try one of these drugs?
