More than £4,000 of so-called legal highs have been handed to police hours after a new law surrounding their supply came into force.
An unnamed head shop in Leicester city centre surrendered the substances to officers on Thursday morning, Leicestershire Police said.
The blanket ban on supplying new psychoactive substances (NPS), which recreate the effects of illegal drugs, came into effect at midnight with punishments of up to seven years in prison for those flouting the new legislation.
Leicestershire Police said officers will monitor all business premises to ensure the substances have been removed from sale.
This is a great step forward in our bid to get NPS off our streets. The term legal high could give the impression that these substances are not as dangerous as controlled drugs. Users never really know exactly what is in the drugs that they are taking and the effects can be life changing.
