Top Ten Worst Drugs

The Top TenXW


Crystal meth is more addictive than heroin. But heroin has a terrible physical withdrawal attached. I've done both, and I could totally function in nearly every respect on heroin. With Crystal, I was SO messed up, nay, F'ed up, I couldn't even go out in public. Heroin is actually a very docile drug. Meth is an absolute disaster. Once you start, you can't stop.

Ruined my boyfriends life as well as his father that was never there for him. Makes you feel on top of the world and leaves you messed up for over 12+ hours straight. You forgot how much little things mean to you and you lose your morals. No other high gets you like this one. It's too great for its own good so stay the hell away from it if you have anyone that matters to you in your life.

Watch the Australian Ice Destroys Lives commercial. People get fired. The guy attacks his mother after she pleads him not to buy more meth after stealing from her purse or his wallet. And the poor little girl. She sees it happen. It's traumatizing. It doesn't just effect the user, it effects family, friends and other people. But the part where the guy goes psycho in the hospital. Imagine how scary it is. The poor people and cops. Never do drugs, they take over and destroy your life. It's unforgiving. And you always remember that you did them. People always remind you. You can also relapse. And withdrawal doesn't always last a week or 3. It can last your whole life, like with Heroin. It's called PAWS (Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome). Methamphetamine is way worse than Krokodil and Heroin combined. At least both can be used as a medicine in their right form, not the infested street form

Ruins every family I've ever seen

How the hell is marijuana on 3rd place? Marijuana is not dangerious and drug on the first place. How many people died from cigarettes, coffee and alcohol? Over milions. How many people died from marijuana? NONE. NONE. NONE. First try it then start talking you retards!

I tried heroin to rid myself of alcohol addiction the first day it worked great as a cure for my hangover didn't take large doses I never drank for a month, one morning I felt a little anxiety and knew that it was probably withdrawal symptoms so I took half as much the next time finished what I had and never tried it again With alcohol drinking weening myself off was an impossibility and the damage to me & those around me was huge. A British study last years showed alcohol caused 3 times more harm than heroin or cocaine & I know it for a fact from my experience. I haven't had a drink in over 10 years & it was marijuana that worked as an anti-depressant and allowed me to sleep

Heroin is by far the worst drug. It is extreemly addictive and very toxic

Heroin needs to be number 1! It will not get you high or anything, just kill you very badly. - Mumbizz01

3Krokodil (Desomorphine)

People need to learn about this now if it is so far down the list. MIT should be at the too wayy above heroin and everything else.
It rots people's flesh from he inside out. People taking this drug have a life expectancy of 1-4 years depending on how much they do it. If they are in the poorer parts of Russia where they can hardly get real heroin at all, they will use this more and rot and die sooner. Others who only use it when they can't get their usual heroin will live up to the four years maybe but the effects are still there using it even once and you will still rot.
It is ghastly. And just recently may be in the US.
It is codeine mixed with gasoline, lighter fluid, eye drops, and some red phosphorous stuff. In Russia Codeine is over the counter so it's easy to obtain a a much, much cheaper than heroin.
Codeine isn't so easy to get in North America so hopefully that will deter it from being an epidemic here as it is in Russia. Only time will tell. First documented ...more

Krokodil is one of the worst drugs and its on 11 place? It should be number 1! Listen Krokodil makes your skin become like Crocodiles. And in later stages of the Addiction tears off your skin until bones become visable. Definitely one of the worst things I ever saw.

Does anyone, here, know anything about this stuff? Have you seen the side effects and toxicity is sky high. People losing limbs and other body parts just because they shoot it in a slightly wrong place. Even many people, that are massive heroin junkies, say they'll never try krokodil, no matter what. This stuff is the worst BY FAR!

Just looked this up. Happy that when I was around LSD was a big thing. At least that didn't bloody eat your flesh and bone away. I'm going to tell my kids about this one. Ok with weed but just about every other drug is a no no.

4Cocaine (Crack)

Cocaine should be near the top.. Ruins lifes. T_T Worse than any other in my eyes. Heroin also

What the hell? Below marijuana?

Lower than marijuana? Honestly?
Like 10x worse

Cocaine can be really harmful but it's not as bad as other drugs. Crack is way worse than the normal Cocaine powder. P.S, it's a party drug. Same with Ecstasy but Ecstasy is way worse. Recently this guy took it and he keeps shaking and stuff and the doctors don't know if he'll ever recover.

This proves that people have no clue... Alcohol and nicotine are one of the worst drugs. They should be both on the top 5 following cocaine, heroin and meth. I can't believe Marijuana is on top 3, when it has been proven that not a single human has died from its consumption, and Ecstasy on top 6, when most people that supposedly die from it, actually die from dehydration (if you're on x you tend to dance, so you begin to sweat a lot. You can not blame the drug because of not drinking water, when you were dancing all night). If you would count the number of dead people because of consuming alcohol and nicotine (legal drugs) it will be still much higher than the one of people who had died because of world hunger and thirst, traffic accidents and wars put together (FACT)

I hate alcohol. My father was a heavy drinker and he ruined my mother's life and I had 8 sisters and 3 brothers who's life he also ruined. Some in my family became heavy drinkers but I have never drunk alcohol. I cannot understand why it is made to look harmless in the media when in fact it will eventually kill you if drunk to excess and one drink will always lead to more potent alcohol like whiskey, rum, vodka etc. In the media they drink it like water and everything is wonderful with happy smiling people, they don't show the after effects. I had a school friend who I hadn't seen for quite a few years, he tracked me down years later and he had 2 sons, one aged 11 and the other 9. He invited my wife, myself and our son to his home on a Sunday and he telephoned at 10am on the Sunday morning telling us not to come because his 9 year old son had been going for the Sunday papers on his bike at 9am when he was hit by a drunken driver. The driver was 18 years old and he put the boy's bike ...more

A new British study shows alcohol to cause 3 times more harm than heroin or cocaine I struggled with alcohol addiction for 25 years it killed my father at the age of 49. I tried every other drug on the planet to rid my addiction to alcohol for me I had zero addiction to all drugs but one drink of alcohol and I'm lost for about 10 years drinking 30 to 50 drinks everyday unable to quit

Alcohol should for sure be at the top

People have died with one hit. Do not do it there might be worse long term drugs but this is a short term drug as in your dead if you try it.

Is this the same as angel dust. Obviously not higher on list because most people will never try it. To much risk for death with one hit

This is up there with the top2

It's a bad drug

7Bath Salts

This is definitely in the top 3. Also well known as the "Zombie Infection" after its outbreak with a man on bath salts eating a mans face off. This will ruin your life completely. Maybe fun for a little bit, but ruins your lifetime.

In northern Maine bath salts Is a huge problem and should be higher on the list. It's not because its not super common anywhere else

Apparently combines the effects of heroin and meth, which makes you ABSOLUTELY CRAZY. - keycha1n

Seriously this is worst than alcohol. You see demons.

Currently dealing with oxycodone addiction and it's miserable. The withdrawl is hell- worse than any flu or food posioning.

What is oxycodone

Oxycodone should be right next to herion? I mean its
The same exact drug opoids. Also I've heard from
Addicts that perc withdraw is worse then dope wd.

Benzodiazepines are, by far, the worst drugs out there. They are extremely addictive, cause immense damage to the body & brain, & are nearly impossible to get off of- in fact, like alcohol, the withdrawal process can cause seizures & death if not done correctly. Doctors over -prescribe benzodiazepines all the time & keep their patients on them when they should be used for short periods of time (2-3 weeks max/not months to years on end). The protracted withdrawal symptoms can last for months, even years & have more symptoms than any other drug by far.

Benzos are very bad. They change your brain and the reversal process is extremely long and can be horrendous. Some people choose to euthanize themselves. It can take years.

If used as directed and not abused they help save people's lives

Should be much higher on this list.

Slowly killing yourself with each breath? Sounds pretty bad to me. Many people I know who are into 'hard drugs' tell me that Cigarettes are the worst of all drugs. I agree despite the fact that I smoke them.

Simply pointless, Kills you slowly but doesn't even get you high. whats the point?

Probably one of the worst things out there, despite its popularity, actually did you know tobacco is more dangerous than heroin and cocaine? If it was illegal people would probably do the things you see meth heads do to get there next hit. I say all this yet I still smoke, maybe just not start.

Very bad drug

The Newcomers


I think this should be the worst


Best new alternative to LSD. Crazy visuals and psychedelic experiences.

LSD's better by a mile, but 25I's fun, and has really nice visuals.

The Contenders

11Devil's Breath (Scopolamine)

This drug can control your mind, and easily kill you. It it grown in South America, mostly in Colombia. Stay away from this drug.

This drug should be in the top 5 it could take away your free will, rapists and human traffickers drug you with this and make you basically do whatever they want you too

People have been told to cut out organs and give them to the attackers and they do it because they have no ability to control their body

Pretty Plant! Lethal Drug?

And date rape drugs should be higher then cocaine or heroin, these aren't taken by choice and come with flash backs and trauma that no other drugs can.


D-118's hard to come off milder version of being on heroin and destroys your liver


Its terrible! It cures minor body pain! If that isn't bad then I don't know what is.. - ryanrimmel

If we can die from it why does the government give it to us?

Tylenol is just acetaminophen why is it on here?

How is Tylenol above LSD on this list?

This drug got me laid

Opium and Heroin are different. Opium is found in the Opium Poppy and is used to make morphine and other drugs. Heroin is a more potent form of morphine. You need a chemical called Acetic Anhydride and Morphine to create Heroin, although there are tons of ingredients in Heroin. The scientific name for Heroin is Diacetylmorphine. So Heroin and Opium are not the same - ThatdamnedYoshi

It makes me really horny

This thing makes you forget about EVERYTHING and so you can sort of scape of the world and your problems, it makes you not to care about ANYTHING at all. If you try this, you MUST look at the sky, so beautiful, it also makes you appreciate more the little things in life. It puts you in these surreal world made by your mind. Oh and after you try this, you cannot donate marrow.

Powerful drug but not very bad

I did this once and decided to lay on the bottom of a pool and look up at the night time sky (under water) and tried to breath. Haha Luckily my friend was there to help me.

This guy took LSD once and never stopped tripping. He's still tripping today. It can also trigger Schizophrenia, don't do it

Nicotine and alcohol are two of the largest sources of preventable deaths in the world today. It's a shame they've ruined so many lives.

Nicotine actually isn't bad. Its not the nicotine that gives people cancer, it's the thousands of other chemicals found in cigarettes and chew that give you cancer. All nicotine does is cause birth defects IF you are pregnant. - ryanrimmel

Nicotine is just.. Ugh

One of the worst

This drug is very harmful. If you take this drug you literally turn into a zombie. This should be in the top5 at least. If you ask the person who looks like a zombie. So ask them if you can I have you credit card details. They will do it with plenty of pleasure. Or even go rob a bank and give the money to me they will do it. By Peter Phillips. I'm a beast so don't be mean BRO! And remember all the girls out there come for me.

If you just look at the documentary on this drug you will know how horrible this drug is. People use this mostly in Colombia and all that needs to be done is to be somewhere near your face and that's it, you a zombie. Strippers would use this drug on their clients. Have their clients take out all the money in their bank and give it to them, next day they don't remember anything. Should be Top 3

Scopolamine provides a potent weapon to Colombian criminals. The drug puts people into a zombie-like state in which they lose both their memory and free will and can be convinced to empty their bank accounts or hand over the keys to their apartments and cars.

This drug is low on the least because it's not recreational. No one would purposely do this. It's like the date rape drug. Very dangerous yes. But used as a weapon not a high
