New Psychoactive Substances

What is NPS - Legal Highs?

New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) or 'Legal Highs' as they are commonly known are substances that are used recreationally but are not controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act (1971), not licensed for legal use, and not regulated as a medicine (Medicines Act 1968).  You may sometimes also hear these reffered to as 'Novel Psychoactive Substances'.

Being legal does not mean it is safe!
