The Government has moved to ban a range of substances currently on sale in head shops.
The products will come under the Misuse of Drugs act and the ban will take effect in June.
The Government must notify the EU and it will take 3 months before they will become illegal.
Legal highs under the following six headings are to be banned:
- Synthetic Cannabinoids, including well-known brands such as Spice.
- BZP derivatives. BZP was banned here last March.
- Mephedrone, better known as Snow or Blow and is the fourth most popular club drug, Methylone and related cathinones
- GBL and 1,4BD, which is better known as liquid ecstasy
