BZP is a man-made stimulant drug that makes you feel alert, more awake and gives enhanced sensations. Occasionally it comes in its pure form as an off-white powder or a slightly yellow liquid. More often, it is combined with similar chemicals called piperazines, and pressed into pills.
These pills come in all shapes, sizes and colours. It's sometimes found mixed in ecstasy tablets.
BZP gives you a rush of tingling all over the skin, and makes you alert, bright-eyed and cheerful. Feelings of euphoria may occur.
The effects can last for 4-8 hours. Food is a turn off and sleep is impossible.
Most people feel headachey, tired, washed out and perhaps a bit sick the next day. Some people still can't sleep and feel restless and anxious for 24 hours.
BZP can over-stimulate the brain and lead to epileptic fits or seizures in people who have never had them before.
BZP is touted as a safe, herbal drug. It is not herbal, it is 100% man-made and its safety profile isn't really understood in the long term.
BZP is a Class C drug.
Posession can mean a prison sentence of two years. Supplying can mean a sentence of 14 years. Both punishments can also mean an unlimited fine.
