'Legal high' drug should be banned

30th April 2009

Experts have said a legally available drug, 4-MMC, which is similar to the drug ecstasy should be banned by the government.

Psychiatrists at Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow said the drug could cause psychosis and hallucinations. Psychiatrist Dr Neeraj Bajaj, said: "It seems to be a new drug that is being imported into the country. It is particularly attractive to people who do not want to break the law and buy drugs on the street. But it is just as dangerous."
