Ketamine #1 Drug in Taiwan

According to the BBC, more Ketamine was siezed in Taiwan last year than any other drug. This doesn't surprise me, even though we hear relatively little about the drug here. My husband and I were just talking about Ketamine the other night, and we both thought it was likely its use in the US would start to increase.

Used primarily as an animal tranquilizer, Ketamine is used for drug-assisted rape, and as a high of choice for people who like "lows" instead of "highs." Many are not aware that the euphoric state they crave is really their body approaching a coma -- and as was the case in Erin's story on my film, a little too much can push you into a coma, brain injury, even death.
