Services Drug Classifications By BARBARA CLAREY There are several classifications of drugs that alter the consciousness. Proceeding in an alphabetical order through the magical, mystical world of mind-altering substances this weeks article will deal with amphetamines and ba|'bituates. AMPHETAMINES: Also known as bennies, uppers, co- pilots, footballs, hearts, speed, or pep pills, am- phetamines are stimulants often prescribed by a doctor to reduce appetite and relieve symptoms of minor depression. Amphetamines are taken to help stay awake, and are popular among truck drivers who spend hours driving at night and among students cramming for exams. Common trademarks for amphetamines are Benzedrine (bennies) and Dexedring (dexies). Commonly taken in pill form, amphetamine abusers may resort to stronger stimulants in the form of injecting methamphetamine or methedrine ("meth", "crystal", or "speed"). Paradoxically, am- phetamines are often used to "calm" hyper-active children. Abuse of amphetamines can cause high blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythms, and even heart attacks. The excessive use of uppers can lead to hallucinations, loss of weight, wakefulness, jumpiness, exaggerated aggressiveness, and a talk, talk, talk manner. As the effects of an am- phetamine wear off the user experiences the "crash". This is a feeling of depression and despondency, of fatigue and sadness which often leads the user to seek another dose fast. Hence, we have the "speed freak" whose "days alternate bet- ween frenetic vision and utter depression because he takes more of the drug to lift himself up after each crash." The speed freak is not limited by income or socmt class to any one group. Many successful businessmen, musicians, actors, college professors (and maybe politicians) need to be "up" for and on the job. They take amphetamines to help stay up in a world of produce or perish. Housewives take pep pills to help them get through the dull routine of housework. Doctors prescribe amphetamines to overweight patients. Amphetamines are not reported to be physically addictive, but they produce cravings for the drug in habitual users resulting in a psychological addiction. And the regular daily user of uppers may resort to the use of barbituates (downers) to help sleep at night. BARBITUATES: Known as downers, red birds, red devils, yellow jackets, goof balls, and blue heaven bar- tituates bring the user down, relax him, induce sleep. Barbituates are taken in pill form and produce an ap- pearance of drunkenness without the odor of alcohol but with the drowsiness, dulled memory, and slurred speech. Unlike am- phetamines, barbituates are physically addictive as well as psychologically addictive. Overdoses are. common among users of barbituates, because of the user forgetting how many pills have been taken. Mixed with alcohol barbituates toxic control. diction is addiction cure than Worse yet, courages the taking pills Addiction enough prescrl relax, get feels nice, strive to again.

( W, I('has always supporlcd .l,.ve a,d his t)rojeets. ) There was a man who lived by the side of the road and sold hot dogs. He sold very good hot dogs. He put up signs along the highway and advertised in the newspaper telling how good they were. He stood on the side of the road and cried: "Buy a hot dog, Mister?" And people bought. He increased his meat and bun orders. He bought a bigger stove to take care of his trade. He finally got his son home from college to help him out. . But then something happened. His son said, "Father, haven't you been listening to the radio and watching TV? There's a big depression. The foreign situation is terrible. The domestic situaon is worse. Whereupon the father thought, "'WEB, my son's been to he listens to the radio and watches "IV and he ought to know." So the father cut down on his meat and bun orders, took down his signs and cancelled newspaper ads and no longer bothered to stand out on the highway to sell his hot dogs. And his hot dog sales fell almoSl overnight. "You're right, son'/the father said to the boy. "We certainly are in the of a great depression."
