With names including “bath salts”, “spice”, and meow-meow”, new synthetic designer substances evade existing laws drugs and offer life threatening consequences for users. Young people are lured into thinking the drugs pose no risk, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said.

"This is an alarming drug problem – but the drugs are legal," the agency said. "Sold openly, including via the Internet, NPS (new psychoactive substances), which have not been tested for safety, can be far more dangerous than traditional drugs. They are "proliferating at an unprecedented rate and posing unforeseen public health challenges.”
