The new trend in designer drugs, over-the-counter synthetic stimulants, has been found to cause serious physical and mental health problems.
This caused the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to make the substances illegal on Friday, Oct. 21.
Examples of these drugs include bath salts, the most common, and plant foods. They contain three controlled stimulants: Mephedrone; 3, 4 methylenedioxypyrovalerone; and Methylone. They can cause paranoia, agitation, and an increase in heart rate and blood pressure.
The effects of these drugs are similar to that of crystal meth, but they are easier for teenagers to find and buy.
