The Minister for Health and Children, Mary Harney TD, declared 1-benzylpiperazine (BZP) a controlled drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977 earlier this year. This has lead to the increased availability of various other ‘legal highs’ and ‘party pills’ via the internet and over the counter in head shops. The National Poisons Information Centre (NPIC) has received 18 enquiries regarding these ‘legal highs’ since then.
