Top 10 Drugs you did not Know Were Legal

Reality-altering drugs are so looked down upon in today’s society that it is hard to imagine there are a few legal ones. Marijuana and its derivatives are illegal because of the hallucinations it causes and the harmful long term effects it has on the body of the user. Other examples of such drugs include crystal meth and heroin. Below is a list of a few substances that are legal in some states, primarily because they have yet to be categorized as drugs.

The gas inside this can is a lot denser than normal air and can cause death the first time it is inhaled.
