Wiltshire Police are warning of the dangers of legal highs following several incidents in Swindon this week. Three individuals believed to have taken legal highs were found acting in an erratic and dangerous way.
The substance all three men are believed to have taken is nicknamed ‘Crystal’. It's likened to Crystal Meth as it causes hallucinations and euphoria but also causes users to re-medicate constantly. Users can stay awake for 5 or 6 days and it can lead to severe psychosis and paranoia.
– Police & Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, Angus Macpherson
“I am very concerned about the recent incidents involving so-called legal highs. There seems to be a misguided belief that, because a substance is called ‘legal’, it must be safe. I know from the users I have talked to that these substances simply are not safe. "
