Alcohol

Mixing drugs does not increase the ‘high’ but often exponentially confuses the brain and body. The brain becomes overwhelmed as it tries to process multiple, conflicting messages. Mixing a small amount of marijuana and alcohol can cause a person to seem and be highly intoxicated as though they have taken several shots instead of a few beers. Another example: mixing alcohol with opioids suppresses the breathing in two different ways at different times which is why a person should never ‘sleep it off’ and seek help immediately.
