What’s All The Fuss About?

There are a large number of New Psychoactive Substances (NPS); here are a few key facts:

  • Legal does not mean that they are safe to take!
  • Risks include the reduction of inhibitions, drowsiness, excited or paranoid states, coma, seizures and death
  • Risks are increased if used with alcohol or other drugs
  • They have similar health risks to drugs like Cocaine, Ecstasy and Speed
  • They are easily accessible to young people
  • It is likely that NPS may actually contain one or more substances that are actually illegal to possess. What you may think is a legal psychoactive substance could be something completely different, and in fact a class B drug.
