‘Legal High’ Vertex

During the last 2 weeks, around 12 individuals have been admitted to hospitals in Cheshire suffering from severe and potentially life threatening health effects following taking ‘Legal High’ drugs containing the synthetic cannabinoid AB-CHMINACA. The problems have been associated with a particular preparation “VERTEX Space Cadet Edition”. This is a smoking product; used as an alternative to cannabis. However a wide variety of ‘legal highs’ contain similar synthetic cannabinoids that can produce serious health effects.

Please don’t take the risk of using these unregulated and potentially fatal ‘legal highs’.
