Instance of legal high called Annihilation has hospitalized more than 11 Scots, including some children too, following which drug experts have now called for a ban over the use of the substance.
Showing a high concern in the issue, the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) has also decided to recommend UK Home Secretary Ms. Theresa May to add the product that till date was being marketed as "herbal incense", immediately to the list of controlled substances.
Drug experts have explained that the drug easily causes unconsciousness to the drug abuser thereby increasing his heart rate, paranoia and chances of self-harming too. They doubt that the substance is being commonly used by young people in Glasgow, which can even prove deadly for them.
The recent instance occurred on Wednesday night, when two young girls, aged 11 and 12, were urgently rushed to hospital after they took a legal high in Kelvingrove Park in the city's west end.
Highlighting more about the incidence, a spokeswoman for the Scottish Ambulance service said: "We received a call-out to Kelvingrove Park at 5.58pm regarding two young females, aged 11 and 12, who had apparently taken a legal high. They were taken to the Western Infirmary for treatment". In the same case, a 16-year-old girl has been detained for having a connection with the incident.
