Designer Drug Nightmare for Drug Rehabs South Africa


The war on drugs has been going for as long as we can remember; from the trippy whippy LSD 60’s to Coke’d up 80’s then through to the dopey 90’s where Heroin usage spiked and Ecstasy and MDMA powered night clubbers.

Just like technology, drugs are constantly being tweaked and reinvented.

Every year at least 30 new “research chemicals” are introduced to the market, these drugs are then tested by the very willing rush junkies, psychedelic enthusiasts, drug dealers and geeks all hoping to find the next “Viagra” of recreational drugs.
