Synthetic Drugs

Synthetic cathinones share the same psychoactive principles as khat, a common stimulant used in Africa and south Arabia.


Designer Drugs

Synthetic cathinones are the psychoactive compound found in many designer drugs like "bath salts".

Synthetic cathinones, like MDPV, Mephedrone, and Methylone, are said to have similar effects to MDMA (Ecstasy), Cocaine, and other amphetamines. They are stimulants, and effects are generally unpredictable. The media claims it turns people into "face-eating zombies", though I'm sure those cases were after extremely high-doses. It's a relatively unstudied drug.
