The Lowdown On ‘Legal’ Highs
(MEDICAL NEWS TODAY) – In the last few years, hundreds of new, synthetic recreational “designer drugs” have come onto the market – the legal market – and nobody really knows very much about them.
They come in kid-friendly packets with kid-friendly names, like “Scooby Doo,” and are available online, in “head” shops and even in gas stations and convenience stores. They are cheap, legal and they can be deadly.
Also known as “club drugs,” MDAT, Eric 3, dimethocaine, bath salts, new psychoactive substances (NPS), 5-IAI and silver bullet are analogs of established illegal drugs.
They are designed to produce the same effects as cocaine, ecstasy and the like, but their chemical structure is sufficiently changed to evade prohibition under the Controlled Substances Act.
