Wrexham Police in Mephedrone warning

Wrexham police are warning dealers who are pushing Mephedrone that they will come down hard on anyone selling it.

At midnight on Friday it became illegal - it is now a Class B drug, the same as cannabis.

The drug was previously sold as a plant food even though it isn't.

Wrexham Town Inspector Alex Goss said:

"If you are caught supplying the drug the consequences are serious.

"Obviously there is the possibility that in simple terms you will go to prison."
