St. Louis County Police Warn of New Drug in Area

For Immediate Release


Recently, a new synthetic drug tentatively identified as “N-Bomb” or legal acid has been purchased undercover in the metro area by drug detectives. N-Bomb, named for its chemical name 2C-I-NBOMe or 25INBOMe, is a new, very potent synthetic hallucinogen that is killing users around the country. There have been deaths in California, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Dakota and Virginia. Only Virginia and Louisiana (in November, 2012) have banned the substance thus far.

The new hallucinogen drug is known as “N-Bomb”, which is also referred to as “Legal
Acid” or ”25I”, is a derivative of mescaline, but is much more potent and deadly than similar predecessors. N-Bomb is a liquid that most commonly is soaked into blotter paper, which users put on their tongue.

"This is a very dangerous drug, and it’s important that we get this information out to the public,” Chief Fitch stated.
