Onset of Drug Effect(s): Ketamine was developed as a tranquilizer, or anesthetic, for veterinarians to use on animals. It was approved for animal and human use in 1970. On occasion, the drug has been used to treat children with major burns.

Ketamine has many different effects, depending on who is using it, what else is in their bodies, and what their state of mind is at the time. These effects can last up to an hour from a single dose, and a great deal longer for larger doses. Flashbacks can happen up to a year later.

Drug Action(s): In most cases, users experience hallucinations and disconnection from everything around them. They also feel numbness in the hands and feet, and loss of muscle control. In other words, they zone out, and sometimes pass out. People on Keatmine are unable to talk coherently, and they feel no pain. Occasionally, they will vomit and convulse. In some cases, people have been known to go into a coma. A full gram of Ketamine can kill you.
