Anyone watching?

Why on earth are those legal highs still legal?!

I feel sorry for the emergency responders having to deal with this

fanjoforthemammaries Mon 11-Jul-16 21:18:12

Yes am watching it. Grim stuff.

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:19:57

Such a waste of resources it really is.

That bloke having that awful reaction. That is terrible to see.

grannyinwaiting Mon 11-Jul-16 21:20:02

Yep watching. Scary stuff! I took far too many illegal drugs in my teens (stupidly) but they seem mild to this new lot

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:20:57

I can hand on heart say I never took drugs and I never smoked.

I did occasionally drink too much and pass out but I think you would be hard pressed to find many people who have never passed out whilst drunk.

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:27:26

Oh jeez look at the state he has gotten himself in sad

fanjoforthemammaries Mon 11-Jul-16 21:28:38

Hope he takes this opportunity to get off it

grannyinwaiting Mon 11-Jul-16 21:30:23

So sad.

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:30:56

You can hope but I can't see it. It's too easy to get hold off

I thought the government was clamping down on these so called legal highs?

fanjoforthemammaries Mon 11-Jul-16 21:31:01

Have never been so drunk I didn't totally know what I was doing,,I am unusual though and don't judge anyone that has.

fanjoforthemammaries Mon 11-Jul-16 21:31:25

I hope they are watching this and something can be done.

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:32:56

My worst drunk experience, I'm now pretty sure my drink was spiked.

I had only taken a couple of mouthfuls and collapsed on the carpet of a friends house party. At the time I didn't question it. Wasn't until about a year ago talking to dh that he made me realise it wasn't normal

grannyinwaiting Mon 11-Jul-16 21:34:24

Alcohol was my drug of choice in the end. Happily now sober for the past three years. I can so see how people get like this sad

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:38:17

It must be so frustrating for the police and hospital workers to see the same people coming in off their face day in, day out. Never changing.

Well done granny flowers

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:41:38

What does bombing it mean?

The man in the bed. The girl said he ended up bombing it because it was like glass and he couldn't sniff it

grannyinwaiting Mon 11-Jul-16 21:45:56

Bombing it is swallowing it instead of sniffing it.

grannyinwaiting Mon 11-Jul-16 21:46:34

Normally wrapped in rizla. I did have a bloody misspent youth!

ineedamoreadultieradult Mon 11-Jul-16 21:47:24

This is a bit out of date I think I'm sure legal highs were made illegal recently.

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:47:46

Ah right. Thank you.

Ouch....if it hurt to sniff it, it must have pained to swallow itn

Alcohol is generally regarded as the most dangerous drug:

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:52:50

I rarely drink now so that's ok but I believe that easily
My mum and dad used to be landlord of a pub. The same people day in, day out drinking double digits of pints

NeedACleverNN Mon 11-Jul-16 21:56:15

Omg did you see that before and after picture of that girl?!

clareth Mon 11-Jul-16 21:57:08

They really do look the something out of the walking dead sad it's very scary and I took loads of (normal!?) drugs in my misspent youth too...

clareth Mon 11-Jul-16 21:57:41

*look like

'Legal highs' were banned in May; this programme will have been recorded prior to that.
Shocking to see the effects of these substances sad
