The so called legal highs, now banned from shops are still rife in communities across the UK, yet too many people are still in the dark about the dangers associated with them. The ‘legal highs’
now illegal with the advent of the Psychoactive Substances Act in 2016 are also called Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPSes) NPS are drugs which were designed to replicate the effects of illegal substances like cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy.
“Dummies Guide to Spice and other Novel Psychoactive Substances” is made with the help from St Martins’ service users and experts to highlight the hazards that these substances pose when consumed. Including an interview with an ex-user:
“My tongue is all cut up…..”
“My family started avoiding me….”
“I spent 8 years in hospital….”
This film gives a much needed picture of the situation today in a brief and accessible format.Made for schools and other organisations who are struggling with the issues presented.
The experts who work at the forefront of NPS mis-use have plenty of harrowing stories and advide to give…
“Controlling it is going to come from informed choices…”
