Using Ketamine without a doctor's prescription is illegal.

Ketamine Misuse And Effects
This dissociative hallucinogenic anaesthetic makes the user feel dizzy and body buzzing which results in relaxation. Typically, the feeling lasts for less than 60 minutes. The "K-Hole" effect is a strong aftermath that makes consumers feel completely disconnected from the real world and is only reached by users who directly inject large doses of Ketamine.
Accidents and possibly fatal injuries may occur when a person is under the influence of this drug since numbness may also be caused by the drug's anaesthetic properties.
its not easy to tell how much of the drug will be too much since the drug is known to be unpredictable. Overdose is a possibility no matter the amount of substance consumed, particularly if it is mixed with another drug or alcohol. Being a tranquilizer, a user can completely lose mobility. Most of the people who've died from Ketamine overdose, died as a result of respiratory failure.
Regular Ketamine Drug Mixtures
Very often, users take Ketamine along with other drugs, and this mixing of drugs results in more severe side effects of Ketamine. Versatile presentations of Ketamine make it easy to add to other abuse drugs as alcohol, marijuana or psychedelics. Ketamine is a depressant in nature and therefore, it can be lethal when mixed with other depressants or alcohol.
Dramatic decrease of heart rate and the respiratory system can be caused if Ketamine is mixed with other depressant drugs.
Ketamine can be consolidated and squeezed into a tablet or capsule form with other powdered medication like MDMA (Ecstasy). Ketamine and MDMA can be hazardous when mixing them together because Ketamine is a depressant and MDMA is a stimulant. Ketamine is also commonly combined with several other drugs, namely DMT, LSD, and other psychedelics.
