A well-written examination of the history and danger of legal highs.
With drugs that we’ve had an opportunity to study (marijuana, MDMA, cocaine, LSD, etc.), we know how our bodies will react. The new chemical cousins of these old favourites (aka. “designer drugs” and “legal highs”) are unpredictable and even lethal. And guess what — more accessible than the illegal, often less-dangerous ones. Hugely problematic. Time for research, education, and drug policy reform. No more unnecessary deaths please.
Available in audio too. Excellent.
