Editorial: Ban these killer drugs

It is absolutely ridiculous that a drug linked to the death of two teenage friends will stay legal until June because the Government cannot fast track laws to ban it.

Mephedrone, a popular legal stimulant, will remain on sale here in Headshops, even though it is illegal in other countries. It is a sorry state of affairs that the authorities say they are helpless to take something like this off the shelves right away.
