The RCMP say another potentially fatal drug — fake LSD — has been found on the streets in this province.

In a news release Wednesday morning, the RCMP said the drug has already been associated with a overdoses and fatalities in Canada.
They say the drug It is likely being held out to be LSD by local drug dealers who may not know the difference themselves. In some cases they are aware it is the drug 25C “N-bomb.”
It was previously sold as a research chemical.
“It looks exactly the same as blotter LSD, but is known on the streets as N-Bomb, Smiles, and Smiley Paper, among other slang terms.” (Numerous pictures are available on the Internet.) These drugs mimic the effects of LSD but, in fact, may be as much as 20 times more powerful.
“They do not break down as quickly which increases the likelihood of someone possibly overdosing on the drug or experiencing drug induced psychosis. There is also a delayed onset of action before persons start to feel the effects, which often leads to them taking more which may lead to an overdose situation.” the RCMP release explained.
The police also warn that anyone encountering these drugs should wear latex gloves when handling because these drugs can be absorbed through the skin and enter the bloodstream.
