Mephedrone is still available on internet

9th February 2011

The BBC has warned that the drug mephedrone can still be purchased online, despite being banned in April last year.

The drug was given class B status in 2010. According to a Radio 5 Live investigation, users can purchase "designer drugs" including mephedrone from websites. Some Chinese websites offer large quantities of the drug - one kilogram for £1,600 - which can then be combined with glucose and sold on the streets for twenty times the price.
