Just the fact that a substance is sold as legal, doesn’t mean that it’s safe - you can’t be sure what’s in a ‘legal high’ that you have been given or taken and what effect it’s likely to have on you.

LETHAL HIGHS

PSYCHOACTIVE SUBSTANCES

TEMPERATURE

Lethal Highs have psychedelic effects which give you hallucinations. 
They can make your body temperature rise which can lead you to developing paranoia or experience
panic attacks.

THE HEART

Lethal highs affect the nervous system and make your heart rate faster.
Many of the health issues related to taking legal highs could damage your heart, such as elevated blood pressure which can increase your risk of a heart attack

 

ALCOHOL

When you combine legal highs with alcohol this can lead to blackouts.
This is where you forgot long periods of time, (time lapses)
Mixing lethal highs and alcohol can also lead to aggressive behaviour.

MENTAL HEALTH

Taking lethal high can lead to paranoia, anxiety and even psychotic episodes
Developing a dependance is likely, if taken regularly

It's very likely to have a negative effect on your sleep pattern and your mental health

Cathedral Youth Club made this awareness video which shows the dangers associated with Lethal Highs
