What is Mephedrone?

Please note that mephedrone is not a drug. It is used as a synthetic fertilizer for plants. However, its use is more addictive than heroin and cocaine. At the same time, it is available at a much lower price than these two drugs. This is the reason why people are falling prey to these drugs. Especially the youth of the city are affected by the use of these drugs.
