The students cited also other drugs, in a small percentage but anyway worth to be mentioned; these are drugs of chimical origin as popper, ketamina, hallucinogen fungus, adrenocromo, mescaline, micropunte and ether. The majority of them are hallucinogens and therefore favour a distorted perception of the reality. The popper, indicated several times, is a substance assumed by inhalation, and his effect lasts 30-40 seconds.
