    The "addicted man of Europe" - that's the reputation the UK has earned itself in recent years, according to a leading social policy think-tank.

    Their report suggests one in every 12 Brits, between the age of 15 and 24, has tried so-called legal highs.

    That means a total of around 670-thousand youngsters.

    These drugs won't land you in jail, but - as studies show - could be every bit as dangerous as their blacklisted equivalents.

    Since 2010, the government has put temporary bans on 15 such substances, but the substitute drugs are popping up at a faster rate than the regulators can handle.
