Answer by dbs1226
depends on what specific substance you are referring too.. all of these “symptoms” can be applied. Alcohol is a depressant, but all 5 apply when you drink. LSD is a hallucinogen, and 2 3 & 5 for sure, dunno about 1 & 4. Cocaine is a stimulant, and you get 2 3 & 5, just like the hallucinogen. But not 1 & 4.
