Over the last couple of months we have been asked this question repeatedly .
Initailly like many others we thought this was a mispelling of Methadone, but mephadrone is one a a group of new drugs that have hit the headlines over the last couple of months.
Mephadrone also known as ‘Meow Meow’ is a currently legal drug which gives a similar high to amphetamine & ecstacy. The drug is purchased as a white powder and is cheap and easily available to buy in the UK. The drug is also known on the streets as ‘Drone’ , ‘Bubble’ or ‘legal high’.
The UK government has been coming under increasing pressure to ban the drug. Mephadrone has been linked to several deaths including the death of a 14 year old girl in November and also to multiple hospital admissions & casualty attendances. Meow Meow has already been banned in Sweden, Finland, Norway & Israel.
Unfortunately as this is a relatively new drug we are not aware of any drug testing kits that will detect it. We will keep you updated as soon as a test becomes available.
