Tennessee Seizes Mephedrone Products

The State of Tennessee mandated seizure of the product known as Molly's Plant Food. Packets of Molly's Plant Food contained one to two pills, which sold for $8-12 apiece. The pills, or capsules, were taken as ecstacy, as they contained mephedrone. Mephedrone is classified as both a stimulant and cathinone, with side effects such as elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate, psychotic behavior, and more.

Mephedrone, also known as "M" or "M-Kat," was the focus of scrutiny in the UK last year. It was eventually banned there, as well.
