SUPER-strong 'legal-highs' have been banned from every club in Scotland's capital, it was revealed last night.
Nightspot chiefs insist the herbal pills and powders are as big a threat as Ecstasy - and must be stamped out before someone DIES.
The Edinburgh crackdown is already backed by the Scottish Government and comes ahead of an expected UK-wide ban on drugs like Spice and BZP later this year.
Last night, Sarah David - of the trade's security scheme Unight, which unanimously voted in the capital move - said: "Anyone found in possession of this drug will now be banned for a minimum of three months."
A Scottish Government spokesman said: "We support any measures to tackle this problem." Lothian and Borders Police would not comment.
