Legal Highs – do we need another name?

With the news that legal highs can now be purchased along with your morning newspaper or fish and chip takeaway in the North of England, Hope UK staff are wondering if legal highs is a good name for substances that are untested, uncertain and, in some well-publicised cases, unsafe.  We would like to suggest ‘potentially dangerous substances that are not yet illegal’.  Yes, it’s a bit of a mouthful, but conveys much more accurately the truth about these increasingly popular substances.

Will making all recreational psychoactive drugs illegal solve the problem?  Probably not, but it will stop them being sold at corner shops, head shops and takeaways where teenagers can easily obtain them.
