uk nitrous oxide banA protest against the government’s proposed ban of legal highs erupted in laughter on Saturday, as dozens of demonstrators simultaneously inhaled nitrous oxide outside the Houses of Parliament. The demonstration was in opposition to the psychoactive substances bill, which would criminalise the sale and supply of any mood-altering drug not specifically excluded from existing drugs legislation. The demonstration was organised by the Psychedelic Society of London, whose members were on hand dishing out balloons filled with nitrous oxide, known as nox, as well as leaflets instructing protesters how to use the drug safely.
