There was a school assembly the other day to talk about drug use and the dangers of doing drugs. During the assembly the administrators running it never talked about how to tell if someone is on drugs so I'm looking to find some knowledge on the subject. Thanks.

Well, it really depends what drugs they are on. Its quite easy to tell if someone has taken some stimulants as they will be more energetic, chatty and alert. There are some dilated pupils drugs, such as MDMA. Possibly even more confident than usual. They may be sweating more or even seem a little agitated.

I think its quite easy how to tell if someone is high if they are acting very different to their usual manner. This might mean that they are quite sleepy but euphoric (opioids and cannabis), over-confident and aggressive (coke, stimulants) and wanting to dance, reacting to music and colours, enlarged pupils when taking party drugs like Ecstasy.

To add on to the previous comment, other physical tell-tale signs of drug use are strange looking eyes like being super red or blood shot, extremely small or large pupils, changes in hygiene and grooming, slurring when speaking, unsteady and fast changing moods. Basically people acting abnormal to a T, for example being extremely paranoid.

There are different ways with different drugs. If you want to know what drugs make your pupils small, for instance, you can do some research on opiates such as heroin, Percocet and the like. If you know someone who is very chatty, friendly and seems a bit rambling sometimes, it might be a stimulant such as speed or coke.

There are different ways to tell if someone is on drugs it really depends on what drug they are using. Some drugs make you more introvert, and others more extrovert. If things in their life are changing work is failing, but they arent clear why, relationships are breaking down, their health doesnt seem so good, if they are complaining about lack of sleep these are all indicators that someone is taking drugs. If you see a friend who is acting differently quite regularly, it may be time to href:"www.findrehabcenters.org".

You can tell if someone is on drugs by the physical appearance and even sometime behaviors. In summary, physical signs are lack or coordination or impaired coordination, deteriorating physical appearance and weight changes, even though there are plenty more.
