Australia and Britain are fighting a new street drug called mephedrone, AKA "meow meow," which reportedly delivers an Ecstasy/cocaine type high when snorted.
Mephedrone is currently legal and can be bought over the Internet, and users say it creates an amphetamine-style euphoria. But it's dangerous: a 14-year-old girl died after using it at a party, and one boy was admitted to the hospital after having such extreme hallucinations that he ripped off his scrotum. HE RIPPED OFF HIS OWN BALLS.
