Mephedrone: The Drug That Changed Dealing The War on Drugs

Date: 2020-09-15 19:00:04

Close ×

Any attempt to shut down the trade in drugs such as heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, ketamine or weed invariably sets off a chain of events that just makes things worse, leaving a trail of death, illness, violence, slavery, addiction, crime and inequality across the globe. Everyone loses – except, in a weird kind of way, the drugs themselves.

In the late 2000s, a global cocaine and ecstasy drought led to the rise of a new drug that changed the way people get high forever: Mephedrone. Legal, dirt cheap and as easy to order online as pizza, for a while mephedrone boomed in countries worldwide. Within a few years, it had been outlawed almost everywhere, but not before introducing a generation to the online drugs market – where narcotic oblivion is only ever a few clicks away.

In The War On Drugs Show, we examine the social implications of prohibition worldwide.
