I don’t think young people are aware of just how dangerous legal highs can be.
Their name is misleading and I want others to be aware that their ingredients are often unsafe for human consumption.
Legal highs have been responsible for death and injury in the past, yet I would often hear stories of how my friends had been to parties and seen someone taking them.
It’s important for people to see the actual dangers of these substances and know that what they’re taking might not be legal, and is definitely not safe.
