Drugs & Legal Highs

Drugs are illegal due to the negative impact they can have on your physical and mental health. Taking drugs also increases the likelihood of risky behaviour, such as unprotected sex and behaviour which results in accidents or injury. SUBU Advice can point you in the right direction for specialist advice and support and, where necessary, advise you on relevant SUBU and BU Policies and Procedures, e.g. mitigating circumstances.

Many illegal substances and new psychoactive substances can be addictive and have a negative impact on your health and studies.

'Just because a drug is legal, it doesnt make it safe'. This includes Legal Highs and prescription medication. Legal Highs can be exceptionally harmful when mixed with alcohol and are often untested. In some cases you are essentially the guinea pig and this can result in a hospital admission or even death. Only take medication which has been prescribed to you by a health professional.
