WHAT IS IT?
Mephedrone is a stimulant drug belonging to the chemical family of the
‘cathinones’ group of drugs. Cathinones are a group of drugs related to
amphetamine compounds like speed and ecstasy.
It was originally sold over the internet as a ‘legal’ alternative to
drugs like speed, ecstasy and cocaine. To get around the law, dealers often
described mephedrone as plant food, research chemicals or bath salts, and
not for human consumption. Mephedrone was made illegal in 2010.

*Mephedrone*, also known as *4-methyl methcathinone* (*4-MMC*) or *4-methyl
ephedrone*, is a synthetic stimulant drug of the amphetamine and cathinone
classes. Slang names include *drone*,^*M-CAT*,^*White Magic*^ and
*meow meow*.^ It is chemically similar to the cathinone compounds found
in the khat plant of eastern Africa. It comes in the form of tablets or a
powder, which users can swallow, snort or inject, producing similar effects
to MDMA, amphetamines and cocaine.
In addition to its stimulant effects, mephedrone produces side effects, of
which teeth grinding is the most common. The metabolism of mephedrone has
been studied in rats and humans and the metabolites can be detected in
urine after usage.
Mephedrone was first synthesised in 1929, but did not become widely known
until it was rediscovered in 2003 at which point it was legal to produce
and possess in many countries. By 2007, mephedrone was reported to be
available for sale on the internet, by 2008 law enforcement
