Psychoactive Substances 

You can’t really be sure what you have bought, or been given, or what effect it’s likely to have on you.  We known that the use of many like ‘Clockwork Orange’, ‘Bliss’, ‘Mary Jane’  'Mephedrone' , 'Ivory Wave', and '5-IT' have been directly linked to emergency hospital admissions, and in some cases, deaths.

Torbay Hospital and Old Farm Surgery are seeing an increasing number of patients having bad effects of these drugs, including a recent admission to Intensive Care and a teenager with a Stroke

These drugs used to be sold as ‘legal highs’ but they have been found to contain one or more substances that are, in fact, illegal
