Northern Ireland: Legal high Ivory Wave to be banned
The so-called legal high Ivory Wave will become a class B controlled drug, the Government has said.
The move comes after the Government's drugs advisers said it should be banned.
An order making the substance illegal will be put before Parliament this autumn, the Home Office said.
The advisers on the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) said the health effects of the substances in Ivory Wave "correspond with those related to other class B drugs and have the potential to cause harm".
