Doctors and Emergency staff are finding it extremely difficult to treat users of “legal highs” whom have overdosed or have experienced negative effects.
The UN said medical staff are “powerless” to help people when they can’t identify what kind of synthetic drug the users had taken.
Norman Baker, Home Office minister has warned that scientists in China and India are producing new legal highs on a weekly basis to be sold in UK.
Mr Baker said that EU law-makers are not able to cope with the “fast moving scene” around the mind altering substances being sold on the internet.
BitcoinHighs.co.uk is one of the first legal highs retailers to start accepting the digital currency known as Bitcoin for their online store.
“Visa and Mastercard are making it very difficult to operate in our industry”, the website told us, “we had no choice but to move to Bitcoin”.
