Details

This report is concerned with advice on the issue of novel psychoactive substances (NPS), sometimes known as ‘legal highs’. NPS are drugs which mimic, or are claimed to mimic, the effects of illegal drugs. There is a common, but mistaken, perception that because such drugs are not legally controlled or banned they are safe.
