Barnsley Sees Vast Increase In MCAT Use

Thursday March 7 2013

POLICE have revealed that Barnsley is the MCAT capital of the county.

Of the 252 kilos of the drug recovered across South Yorkshire, 161kg came Barnsley. That's a staggering increase of 230 per cent.

Police say the plant fertiliser-based drug has become popular on the town's nightlife circuit as many people see it as a cheaper alternative to alcohol.

South Yorkshire Police's Gavin Kerr, said: "On weekends there's a high quantity of it in the town centre. People who have never been in trouble before do it."

Until two years ago, it was known as a 'legal high' and available as plant food.

Users snort, swallow or inject it to get feelings of euphoria and excitement but side effects include aggressive behaviour, paranoia and loss of concentration.

I wish people would get their facts straight MCAT as absolutely nothing to do with fertilisers, plants etc. It is a synthetic stimulant, made in a lab, purely for recreational drug use.

perhaps you should get your facts straight. The basic chemical recipe is that of plant food. Similar to the little sachets on bouquets. Only idiots would take the stuff but then we are talking about Barnsley.....
