Street Drugs

Street drugs are illegal in most places in the world today. For this reason, talk of it has had to go underground. A very effective way of going underground is the development of a secret street drug code language known and understood only by those who live in that world. In this way, people can talk about street drugs right in front of partners and parents without fear of them catching on.

A number of drug related street terms are now more numerous than can begin to be recorded or described. There is also nothing static about the slang for street drugs. It changes faster than fashion and prides itself on staying ahead of those who would crack the code.
