Druglink news item 2010 – NRG brand masks illegal mephedrone sales by Andrew McNicoll and Mike Power

A series of banned drugs are being sold disguised as ‘legal high’ brands like NRG-1, tests have revealed. Most NRG-1 or NRG-2 branded products tested in separate studies by
police, academics and drug user forums contained recently outlawed Class B drugs including mephedrone, flephedrone, MDPV and butylone – despite claiming to contain
the legal substance naphyrone. The findings mean users and head shops are unwittingly at risk of legal penalties for the possession or supply of Class B drugs.
