Sydney: A euphoric high delivered by party drug mephedrone not only makes it extremely addictive but also prompts users to quaff massive doses to maintain the kick, says a study."Combined with the fact mephedrone is skyrocketing in popularity worldwide, our finding that high doses can cause ongoing cognitive impairment spells a significant risk for users," said Craig Motbey, doctoral candidate at the The University of Sydney School of Psychology, who led the study.Also known as `meow meow` and `MCAT`, mephedrone`s immediate effect on the brain is similar to a combination of ecstasy and methamphetamine."You get the euphoria and touchy-feeliness of ecstasy together with the intense addictiveness of methamphetamine or cocaine," added Motbey, the journal Public Library of Science ONE reported.
