Considering the health and social problems that were associated with the so-called ‘legal highs‘ in recent years, the emergence on the New Zealand market of a new generation of the product in recent days must give cause for concern – Tai High. It has supposedly met the requirements of the law and has passed the tests. It is, the manufacturers claim, a non-psychoactive smoking blend.
As they say the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The consumers will decide whether it meets their personal requirements to induce a genuine ‘high’ or is another health risk. Let’s face it the recently banned products caused health, mental and social problems. As a consequence many users were considering, or in some cases,actually changed to cannabis. Many users do not like being involved with the criminal fraternity that sells cannabis – the gangs. By using legal highs they avoided any contact with criminal elements. The new product, ‘Tai High’ and other products currently being tested may undoubtably solve their problems for them. The usage of cannabis is a subject of a future post here at “Peters Place”.
