A spokesman for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s has today welcomed the decision by T in the Park organisers to ban legal highs.
Dr Richard Stevenson said: “Banning legal highs at T in the Park is great news. The dangers of these products should not be underestimated. It is difficult for clinicians to treat cases of unknown intoxication caused by these products as most are synthetic chemicals that are not easily identifiable with routine body fluid testing.
“There is no known antidote and there is no evidence base in terms of the type and severity of symptoms. However, it is clear that these products pose a number of different risks.”
