Street Drugs

Street drugs imply illegal drugs that can only be found on the street or through the black market. But, these drugs now overlap with prescription drugs which can also be found on the street for sale by your neighbor dealer. Not too many years ago a drug dealer was called a dope dealer or "pusher" or "The Pusher Man" as made famous by the rock group Steppenwolf.

Drugs sold on the street, over the years, have been numerous names as slang particular to a certain neighborhood. Sometimes those street names caught on and became nationalized instead of localized. Right now, there are 4000 - 5000 street names for drugs, most of which pertain to a particular neighborhood.

We encourage parents to know the names of the these drugs in their particular locations so that they may use the proper lingo when talking with their children. A couple of good resources for this can be found at Street Terms and Street Drug Slang Dictionary.

We've compiled a list of the most famous street names for the most popular drugs for old time's sake, though most of these names are now "not hip" except to the older generations.

Street drugs aren't what they used to be. They're not just in inner cities where drug dealers hang around the schools and playgrounds. These drugs are now in the suburbs, the playing fields, the high-rise office buildings, the small business cubicles and in the home.

Another thing that has changed is street drug prices. Since drugs sold on the street are a commodity the prices can fluctuate from supply and demand just like black market guns, cigars or other items.

Because of the Infomation Superhighway, the street has also expanded to the Internet as well. The availability of drugs cross all professions and all social and economic barriers. They are on your block, in your church and perhaps even in you or a loved one. The important thing is to acknowledge the problem and get help or give help. Either one will make the world a saner place.
