    Users of club drug 'Roflcoptr' warned about
    unknown long term effects

    Doctors say no research on mket's effect has been done

    Users of a new legal high known as 'Roflcoptr' or 'mket' are being warned about possible
    unknown longterm dangers of the ketamine-like substance.

    A report in the current issue of Mixmag say users of the drug, which comes in white
    powder form, claim the drug gives them "feelings of warmth and enlightenment" and
    adding that there's a "hallucinatory" element to the drug, which users purchase legally
    online as a research chemical – it cannot be sold explicitly for human consumption.

    However, the article quotes Dr Valerie Curran, a psychopharmacolgist at University
    ollege London, who says: "People are playing Russian roulette when they take
    something like this, because there's been no research on its effects."

    The Mixmag piece also talks to users of the drug, one of whom, 'Jeremy', recalls watching
    a snow-filled Kate Bush video. He says: "I was in the video, actually inside the frame. I
    forgot where I was, what I was listening to, everything. I was that snowman, and I'm not
    usually prone to hallucinations. I don't even like Kate Bush."

    Another Roflcoptr user states:

    "We were on it at Glastonbury. When a mate shat himself, rather than take the piss
    out of him, we were just really understanding."

    Dr Adam Winstock also warns users in the piece of increased vulnerability and safety
    issues, explaining that people on the drug "aren't too preoccupied with the world around
    them and they go off into the world within them."

    Drug users don't usually care about long term effects. :giggle:

    Sounds like the same shit they said about LSD. You'll have flashbacks years later blah blah blah. I feel ripped off that I haven't had a single one of those promised long term effects.

    This stuff is probably why you're acting so weird this weekend!

    Better write another email to your mom and dad. I have a feeling the shop won't be opening on Monday...
