In the News

In Durham, UK a teenager was high on Meow Meow’s, and experienced hallucinations for 18 hours that made him believe there were centipedes crawling all over his body, and biting him. He ended up in the hospital after ripping his own scrotum off. Inspector Kevin Tuck of the Durham Police Force said, “People are blatantly saying there is nothing the police can do because it is ‘legal’. The use of this drug is becoming more prevalent. Parents should be on their guard – particularly at this time of the year. They need to know it is freely available on the internet and that teenagers are talking about it.”
