Mephedrone (AKA M-Cat, Meow, Gath and Drone) is a chemical which is designed to mimic the effects of three other drugs all in one. Those three drugs are ecstasy, amphetamine and cocaine. Because they are all illegal drugs, people who liked to use them wanted a drug that had the same effects but was not illegal and this is why mephedrone was designed. When it first came out, it wasn’t illegal. It was made illegal in 2010. It is a Class B drug
Mephedrone is considered to be a drug because when taken into the body it changes the way you think, feel or behave. A drug is any substance which does this. Drugs which speed the body up are called stimulant drugs. These drugs stimulate the central nervous system, and speed up the heart rate and breathing. Ecstasy, amphetamine and cocaine all do this; so does mephedrone.
Mephedrone also has hallucinogenic aspects. A hallucinogen is a drug that changes your perception of what’s happening around you; changes how reality seems to you. How you see, understand and think about the world around you is called your ‘perception.’ A hallucination is the effect you get when your perception of reality has been changed. Hallucinations can range in strength from very mild to very strong. Ecstasy also has hallicinogenic aspects. The main (primary) effect of both mephedrone and ecstasy is stimulant. The hallucinogenic effect is secondary (there, but less than, the main effect)
