According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, ketamine is a anesthetic and a paralytic. This makes ketamine extremely dangerous in certain situations. You can do serious physical and mental damage to yourself when you use ketamine in the wrong situations.
1. At Raves
Raves are large parties where techno music and doing drugs, particularly MDMA, is commonplace. Most people at raves do stimulants. Although some users recommend it, doing a drug that could paralyze you or make you unconcious for any length of time is dangerous during a rave. There are usually a lot of people who are not in control of their actions at raves. You can easily get hurt.
2. At Parties
Like raves, parties are dangerous places for using ketamine. Ketamine is a date rape drug. There are a lot of people who report date rape at parties where they’ve either voluntarily or involuntarily taken ketamine.
3. Around People you Do Not Know
Like raves and parties, ketamine is dangerous, when you are around people that you do not know. There are reasons why people use this as a drug to hurt others. It renders you incapable of defending or protecting yourself, no matter how strong or big you are ketamine still makes you vulnerable.

When you are not at home passing out or becoming unconscious can be extremely dangerous. If you are not at home with people you trust, you are in danger of being taken advantage of or you could find yourself unconscious outside in the cold, in the street, or somewhere else dangerous. Not everyone is nice enough to call emergency services, if something should go wrong.
