It has the active ingredient: Mephedrone aka (4-methylmethcathinone) (4-MMC, MCAT, Bubbles. Meow, Miaow) also known as Meow Meow: It is often sold as "plant food" or "bath salts" although, as it has no use as such products
- Not to be confused with methedrine, methedrone, methadone, or methylone.
Intended effects: (this will vary on the person and the purity of the Mephedrone - as well as if the user is using any other drugs at the time of usage, being recreational or prescription & especially alcohol!)
Users have reported that mephedrone causes euphoria, stimulation, an enhanced appreciation for music, an elevated mood, decreased hostility, improved mental function and mild sexual stimulation; these effects are similar to the effects of cocaine, amphetamines and MDMA.
These effects last different amounts of time, depending on the way the drug is taken. When taken orally, users report they can feel the effects within 15–45 minutes and when snorted the effects are felt within minutes.
ORAL/NASAL: last for between two and three hours when taken
IV (intravenously): last only half an hour if taken.
If taken in high doses it causes hallucinations & the effects can last for upto 5-6 days. All in all, It is very dangerous, & there are now many bath salts that are made up of a different active ingredient, MDPV (Methylenedioxypyrovalerone), which is much safer and has similar effects to the effects of cocaine, amphetamines as well.
