image for Mephedrone - 'Meow-Meow' - Further Confusion Takes Hold

Controversy continues to surround mephedrone, the legal high drug which has allegedly caused an indeterminate number of accidental deaths, predominantly among teenagers out for a good time.

There have been widespread calls from influential individuals calling for an immediate ban but because of internal wrangling at the 'Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs' the committee failed to provide the necessary formal advice to the Home Office.

It seems that the drug will eventually be banned, but probably not until the summer, sources inform us. In the meantime the national press leads the clamour for a banning order.

Which is where a pertinent sticking point arose.

One popular daily newspaper described the street name for the drug as 'Meow Meow' whilst a rather more upmarket daily journal referred to the drug as 'miaow-miaow' leaving the great British public terribly confused.

As is becoming the norm these days.

The discrepancy was pointed out today by SPB (Society of Pedantic Bastards) representatives, who complained that if the press couldn't agree on a common spelling, then there appeared little chance of the drug actually being outlawed.

The Press Council have agreed to meet tomorrow in a bid to achieve a standard spelling for the street name of mephodrone - or Meow Meow, or miaow-miaow, or whatever they call it.

Skoob News prefers 'miaow-miaow' because it sounds more like a cat mewing.

Or whatever.

More as we get it.
