Legal highs (Injecting)

Injecting “legal highs” and other substances – for example MPA or mephedrone – is highly risky.  Injecting is the highest risk way of using these drugs, and drugs sold as white powders, as they can be very corrosive and we have had reports of users injecting these drugs which has led to abscesses and blown veins.  Injecting carries the risk of Blood Borne Viruses such as HIV and Hepatitis C, risk of vein damage and overdose.  Snorting of these drugs is likely to be less risky but still may expose to BBVs and corrosive damage.
