Drug Safety Alerts

 

NBOMs (25 NBOMe) / ‘Artificial LSD’

Since the start of May 2013, we have become aware of the emergence of a New Psychoactive Substance (NPS) within our Force area with the street name of NBOM (Also 25 NBOM and 25NBOMe). The NBOMe group of NPS’s are relatively new Hallucinogenic substances and have been regarded as alternatives to LSD.
NBOMe is encountered as a liquid, a powder and more commonly as impregnated paper ‘tabs’.

Over the last weekend there has been an incident where two users were admitted to hospital in a serious condition. One male has since been released; the other is currently in a critical condition which is likely to prove fatal.
