TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE Drug and Alcohol IQ Challenge THE TERM DABBING REFERS TO SMOKING EXTRACTS FROM WHAT DRUG? A. Marijuana B. K2/Spice C. Cocaine D. Methamphetamine A

Smoking THC-rich resins extracted from the marijuana plant is called dabbing. These extracts come in various forms and consistencies, such as oils, gooey liquids, waxes, and soft or hard solids. These extracts can deliver large amounts of THC to the body, and their use has sent people to the emergency room. Preparing these extracts is also dangerous because it usually involves butane (lighter fluid). A number of people have caused fires and explosions and have been seriously burned from using butane to make extracts at home.

OVERDOSE? A. Irregular breathing B. Confusion C. Vomiting D. All of the above D. Alcohol overdose occurs when there is so much alcohol in the bloodstream that areas of the brain controlling basic life-support functions, such as breathing, heart rate, and temperature control, begin to shut down. Symptoms of alcohol overdose

include confusion; difficulty remaining conscious; vomiting; seizures; trouble breathing; slow heart rate; clammy skin; dulled responses, such as no gag reflex (which prevents choking); and extremely low body temperature. If you suspect someone is experiencing an alcohol overdose, get medical help immediately. Cold showers, hot coffee, or walking will not reverse the effects of alcohol overdose and could actually make things worse. Alcohol overdose can lead to permanent brain damage or death.
