Meaning of Hallucinogen
A hallucinogen is a psychoactive agent which can cause hallucinations, perception anomalies, and other substantial subjective changes in thoughts, emotion, and consciousness.The common types of hallucinogens are psychedelics, dissociatives, or deliriants. By contrast, Stimulants, Opioids, and other psychoactive drugs are not explicitly hallucinogens because a 'hallucination' is visual terminology. The psychoactivity of opioids is devoid of visual anomalies, though the 'numbing' can be considered dissociation from pain. Hallucinations are not an uncommon symptom of amphetamine psychosis, but as they are not a primary effect of the drugs themselves. While stimulants do not induce hallucinations without abuse, the nature of stimulant psychosis is not unlike delirium. - See link

 

Hallucinogen in Spanish is Alucinógeno
Se llama alucinógenos a cierto tipo de drogas que, en dosis no tóxicas, causan alteraciones profundas en la percepción de la realidad del consumidor. Bajo su influencia, las personas ven imágenes, oyen sonidos y sienten sensaciones muy distintas a las propias de la vigilia. Algunos alucinógenos también producen oscilaciones emocionales rápidas e intensas. En su aspecto negativo, en muchas ocasiones producen confusión mental, pérdida de memoria o desorientación en la persona, de espacio y de tiempo. - See link
