Mephedrone more popular since being banned – survey
The full story is here, but the following provides a summary of how well the prohibition of mephedrone (bubble, m-cat, meow meow), and prohibition generally, has worked:
"Since we carried out our first study the purity of mephedrone has fallen, the price has risen, yet the results of our second study showed both use and popularity had increased in the year since the ban.
"The results of our two studies showed that not only were club-goers undeterred by the change in law, but the drug had in fact increased in popularity among our sample."

The survey found the dance drug GHB – also known as GBL – was the second most popular drug among clubbers
GHB isn't actually the same as GBL, but that is just routine journalistic ignorance of designer drugs. Neverthless, I trust you get the point.
