Legally high?

May 5th 2015

A research organisation is appealing for volunteers with experience of taking legal highs to compete an online questionnaire.

The survey, called ‘High time for Hector’ has been launched by Tonic, a research consultancy. It is working with a number of local authorities to help provide them with information about why people take legal highs, where they get them and what the effects are.

In its recent survey of street drugs, the former charity Drugscope highlighted concerns about the rapid rise in the use of synthetic cannabinoids amongst those who were street homeless.

The survey is confidential and can be done anonymously. However those who are willing to provide an email address can enter a free draw to win a Playstation4.
