January 2016 saw the launch of a new resource to help raise awareness of the dangers of new psychoactive drugs or so called legal highs, coinciding with a series of roadshows at all secondary schools in Jersey.
New website - highs.exposed
The charity Prison Me No Way!!! Jersey has developed a unique website - www.highs.exposed - as a one-stop shop to provide information about so called legal highs for students, parents and professionals. The site includes information about:
- What are NPS (New Psychoactive Substances)?
- What does the law say and how is it different between Jersey and the UK?
- What do “legal highs” look like?
- What are the risks?
Tell us what you know
New psychoactive drugs continue to cause serious harm and have been linked to deaths and suicides both in Jersey and the UK. Jersey Police are actively seeking intelligence on so-called legal highs and the dealing of them.
Help for parents and carers
