Campaigners launch film competition to raise awareness of dangers of legal highs – and suggest alternatives
A national film competition has been set up by campaigners raising awareness of the potentially devastating effects of club drugs and legal highs. The Why Not Find Out campaign by the newly launched Angelus Foundation will invite young people to make films about the best ways of getting naturally high, such as sports and music.
The campaign is to be launched at the Tricycle Cinema in Kilburn, north London, on 14 November.
Maryon Stewart, who founded the Angelus Foundation in 2009 when her medical student daughter Hester, 21, died after taking the then legal Gbl, said the legal status of a substance was no guarantee of safety. »
