TheSite.org has a wealth of straight-talking, trustworthy information on legal highs in the ‘Drink and Drugs’ section, which explains what they are, common varieties available, the myths surrounding legal highs and what to do to protect your health if you’re tempted into taking them.
Holly Thompson, who writes for TheSite.org said: “One of the main dangers of legal highs is a misconception that because something is ‘legal’ then it’s ‘safe’, which is not the case.
“The different brands of legal high change so quickly that it’s impossible to know exactly what you’re taking and what effect it can have on your body and if something goes wrong, you could be in trouble.
“Taking legal drugs can be just as dangerous as taking illegal ones, so it’s crucial that young people have the facts, so that they’re able to make informed decisions.
