Effects have been noted as similar to cocaine and MDMA
- feelings of happiness
- ‘comedown’ (usually depressed and tired feeling) as effects wear off
Mephedrone is found as a white powder
Snorted: usually divided into lines and snorted (insufflated) via rolled up paper or ‘bumped’/’keyed’ i.e. small amount sniffed.
