Cabinet sanctions banning of 10 additional ‘legal highs’
The cabiinet has approved the placing of 10 more so-called “legal highs” under the Misuse of Drugs Acts.
Minister for Health James Reilly yesterday asked Government colleagues to agree to make an order bringing additional substances sold in “head shops” under the control of the Act.
The move was welcomed by Minister of State with responsibility for drugs strategy Róisín Shortall. “These new substances are dangerous and pose significant health risks for people who use them.”
