A drugs charity has claimed that teenagers across Britain are injecting the 'party drug' mephedrone as a way of dealing with psychological problems.

In some cases, said charity DrugScope, teenagers are injecting mephedrone - which is also known as meow meow - more than 20 times per day.

It added that more teenagers are coming forward with behavioral issues associated with the drug, including panic attacks, paranoia and a loss of control.

DrugScope said that a particularly worrying trend is that people who would never consider injecting drugs such as heroin are taking mephedrone.

‘All indicators of drug use show an overall decline but there’s no room for complacency,’ said DrugScope's chief executive Martin Barnes.

'But as our survey shows, there is no room for complacency on this.

'With the arrival of drugs such as mephedrone and the whole array of synthetic cannabis compounds and other new drugs, we may well have a drug scene in transition.'

Mr Barnes said that the rise in injecting was especially worrying, as it could lead to blood-borne viruses such as hepatitis C.

The virus already affects more than 40% of injecting drug users.

'To continue to describe (mephedrone) as a 'party' or 'club drug' risks downplaying the harms associated with its use,' Mr Barnes said.
