Van Hout, Marie Claire and Brennan, Rebekah (2011) Plant food for thought: A qualitative study of mephedrone use in Ireland. Drugs: Education Prevention and Policy , 18 , (5) , pp. 371-381. https://doi.org/10.3109/09687637.2010.537713.

This exploratory research aimed to present a ‘consumptive snapshot’ of this emerging drug in the Irish drug scene, with specific focus on mephedrone user experiences, social situatedness of use and risk discourses. Twenty two in-depth interviews were undertaken with young Irish people aged 18–35 years, who had used mephedrone in the 6 months prior to fieldwork.
