Legal Highs

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

Many hospitals around the country 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.

Some drugs sold as ‘legal’ actually have been found to contain one or more substances that are, in fact, illegal.

This is a FREE support service provided by the NHS for people living in Dorset whose daily lives are affected by a health condition.
