This study sought to collect information on the former legal-high ‘mephedrone’ using a previous termwebnext term-based previous termsurveynext term targeted at mephedrone users.


The previous termsurveynext term was advertised on websites frequented by drug users. Individuals were invited to complete the previous termsurveynext term if they had taken mephedrone on at least one occasion in the past.


One thousand and six completed forms were received from declared users, making this the largest previous termsurveynext term on mephedrone to date.


Results showed that mephedrone users consider its effects to compare best with those of MDMA, and while MDMA was considered marginally safer and its effects more pleasurable, mephedrone's appeal lay in its availability, low price and reliable purity.
