Death fears over Soviet street drug

FORENSIC experts in Scotland are warning about the increasing misuse of a legal drug five times the strength of Valium that is freely available to buy online.

Phenazepam was developed in the Soviet Union to treat neurological disorders such as epilepsy and insomnia but has never been prescribed in western Europe.

However, a forensic team at Dundee University has identified several cases of phenazepam misuse and has warned it could become used more widely as a substitute for controlled sedatives such as Valium (diazepam).
