Manchester Drug Analysis and Knowledge Exchange (MANDRAKE), an organisation based at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) who chemically analyse drugs across the city, have issued an alert over a bright orange powder.
The powder, which is circulating in Greater Manchester, has been analytically confirmed by MANDRAKE to be the synthetic cathinone: 4-chloromethcathinone (4-CMC or clephedrone).
If unwell please seek medical attention.
Free drug testing kits and support
The safest way to take drugs is not at all. However, we recognise that a number of students choose to use drugs whilst at university.
- There are free and anonymous drug testing kits available on campus, from the Students’ Union Advice Service.
- Eclypse, a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for young people in Manchester are also available to speak to at the Advice Service.
- Advice and information for students who use drugs can be found on Student News here.
