YS IN THE NEWS: Research With YMCA On Legal Highs In Independent And BBC News

Posted on 26th May 2016 by Youth

LegalHighIndeYouthSight has powered the latest piece of news-breaking research with YMCA on legal highs, after the recent blanket ban on ‘psychoactive substances’ which mimic the effects of illegal drugs.

Reported in the Independent, BBC News and discussed widely, our research suggests that while overall usage of legal highs is likely to decrease, around two-thirds of young people who currently take the drugs are likely to continue using them in the future.
