  1. Apparently naphyrone is far more dangerous than mephedrone, too.

  2. so more money for vice =D
    banning items in my view is never the solution only one of the problems!

    need more quantatative data rather than the usual pandering condemnations, but no politician is willing to say educate, legalise, regulate, monitor. Narcotics do carry dangers, but worse than alcohol or nicotine?

  4. Is this whats used to make poppers?
    Im all for banning these legal highs

  5. What exactly is this piece of news doing in a “gay news service”?
    Are these chemical compunds gay?

  6. Banning drugs never works.

    People still consume them but are criminalised for doing so.

    Prescription drug addiction and alcoholism are far more serious problems than illegal drug addiction but are not demonised in the same way.

    Exactly Stephen One pint can kill you but one shot of heroin and you are in la la land all safe and cosy…fu<k sakes….get your head out of your hole. I see the fu<kin eejits taking it on the scene, if they do cause harm to themselves thats fine by me, Im not caring for them…..I dont have a problem with people doing them as long as it doesnt affect me!

  8. #5 You aren’t on the “scene”, obviously Jonas, otherwise you would know that illegal drugs and legal indeed, are abused more by the young gay community than any other section of society. Cop on before it’s too late…………

  9. No 7: ChutneyBear: “One pint can kill you but one shot of heroin and you are in la la land all safe and cosy…fu<k sakes….get your head out of your hole."

    What an unpleasant and stupid person you sound.

    My point was that alcoholism and tobacco kill many times more people than heroin and cocaine and E etc etc. But because they are 'socially acceptable' they are not demonised despite the vast damage they do.

    Britain's pathetic attitude to alcohol is the reason that going out into town on a Saturday is such an unpleasant, dangerous ordeal.

    Apparently 1.5 million people in Britain are addicted to Valium also.

    But that's a prescription drug so uit's not a problem apparently.

    La dee bloody da with bells and whistles,unpleasent perhaps, stupid? No mate Im living in the real world. Reason why alcohol and tobacco are legal is that they dont kill on the first go however someone who stick a kilo of snow up their nose can die on the first instance of taking it…My suggestion to you would be to talk to Frank and put your dress and handbag back in the drawer and go back to your head buried in Vogue….*Sigh*…

  11. “Reason why alcohol and tobacco are legal is that they dont kill on the first go however someone who stick a kilo of snow up their nose can die on the first instance of taking it…”

    Well you’ve just proven yourself to be a remarkably stupid individual if you are actually comparing smoking a cigarette and having a pint with snorting a kilo of cocaine.

    Do you thihk that is a valid comparison? Or are you merely stupid?

    You do accept, I presume,that alcohol or tobacco or prescription drugs (individually) kill more people each year in Britain than all illegal drugs combined?

    Or are you one of those ridiculous Daily Mail style ‘Drugs are bad mmmkay’ people.

    “Prescription drug addiction and alcoholism are far more serious problems than illegal drug addiction but are not demonised in the same way. ”

    You ignoramus, you are the one who made the comparison and then you have the sheer audacity to call me a remarkably stupid individual? There is time to educate people about the dangers of alcohol and cigarettes, the time frame with drugs is much smaller. Stephen believe me if a pint could kill a bloke on his first sip I would be breaking out in fairy lights like yourself but for the mean time I dont see any reason too….Now merrily skip along and think about what you just said…

  13. StephenC: “Apparently 1.5 million people in Britain are addicted to Valium also. But that’s a prescription drug so it’s not a problem apparently.”
    That’s beacuse Valium won’t kill you stone fcuking dead in a single hit.
    Heroin is actually a pretty ssafe drug, but the problem is, being illegal, it is cut with other substances, so one never knows the strength of what you are getting. Heroin deaths are invariably caused by overdosing. Using a prescribed drug such as valium, you know EXACTLY what you are taking, each time and every time.

    Drugs need to be legalised so that those people that stupid enough to want to take them at least know what they are getting. At the same time, usage can be monitored, the purchase can be taxed, and it eliminates the scumbag dealers and crime off the streets.
