Mephedrone - Mefedron
Last update: 6 juni 2022
So-called designer drug, is sold as plant food to circumvent the legislation. It says on the packaging that it is not for human consumption. Sometimes confused with 3-MMC. 3-MMC differs little from 4-MMC in terms of effect, side effects and addiction. Taking a second dose of 3-MMC the effect is bigger, even with the same amount. 4-MMC seems milder. Legally, there is a difference. 3-MMC is not on list 1 of the Opium Act.
