Heroin scare

May 20 2009
Be aware of smack in the Croydon cut with Rohypnol-like substance Alarm was raised recently by Croydon Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) that some heroin available is contaminated with unknown and dangerous substances. This heroin has caused unusual reactions for up to 36 hours. During this period, users have become uninhibited and aggressive, but afterwards have no recollection of their behaviour. Samples have been sent to be tested. SLAM (South London & Maudsley) NHS and Lambeth DAAT, said it has similarities with samples they tested 18 months ago, when the heroin was found to be mixed with Rohypnol (the infamous 'date rape' drug) and instant coffee.
