Molecules!

I have ChemDraw! The standard price for ChemDraw Pro is £640.00, but students can buy it for £90. Yay.

To celebrate this, I have drawn the structures of every psychoactive drug I have ever taken.
Drugs I have taken
I've checked the structures against several different sites, but venlafaxine in particular doesn't seem to reach consensus. Something about the exact 3D shape of the cyclohexane ring at the top.

When more time exists, I will draw the structures of every painkiller and antibiotic I've ever taken. Opioids have incredibly weird structures which will test my understanding of the software. (I think they're a bit beyond me today.)

Yay hexagons!
