Mephedrone banned, 01/04/10 [W]

Mephedrone and its related compounds are to be banned and made Class B drugs following recommendations from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD).

The move comes after advice from the chair of the ACMD that mephedrone and the family of cathinone derivatives are dangerous drugs and should be controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 as Class B. The ACMD expressed concern about the harms it can have on the health and wellbeing of users.
