Specifically the warning relates to the 2C family of psychedelic phenethylamine designer drugs. These include among others,

  • 2CP
  • 2CI and its derivative 25I-NBOMe

These drugs are also known by their street names which include:

  • N Bombs
  • Smiles
  • Solaris
  • 25-I
  • INB-Meo
  • Cimbi-5

These drugs can be sold in liquid, powder and tablet form and can have serious side effects including paranoia, hallucinations, gastrointestinal effects and kidney problems. The HSE Addiction services are issuing a warning about possible contaminated ‘party pills’ and advise people not to consume any unknown substances that they are offered at this time.

Given the serious side-effects experienced by the young people in Cork it is important to be careful of any substance you are offered, and in particular to avoid those listed above.

If you have concerns around drug use please contact the confidential HSE Drugs & Alcohol Helpline at freephone 1800 459 459 or email helpline@hse.ie. Information can also be accessed at www.drugs.ie.
