What is 4-MMC, also known as Mephedrone (4-methylmethcathinone, 4-MMC) is in regard to its structure, quite the relative from Amfetamines. The most known street names for 4-MMC are ‘Bubble’, ‘Mcat’ or ‘Miauw Miauw’. 4-MMC can be found in various forms, but the most popular forms are powder or crystal. It is however also possible to find 4-MMC in the form of a pill.
4-MMC was first discovered by the Psychonaut Research Project in 2008. However, Mephedrone was already available on the market back in 2007. In 2007 the French government found a pill of which they thought it was an xtc pill. After investigating the pill, they found out that is was 4-MMC. This moment can be seen as the moment that the world first encountered with Mephedrone. But it wasn’t until 2009 when 4-MMC gained popularity in the United Kingdom. Just like a lot of other English products, 4-MMC soon found its way to the Netherlands, where it became popular rather quickly.
In 2012 4-MMC, or Mephedrone, was put on the Dutch Opiumlist. In other words, selling, owning and dealing 4-MMC is illegal in the Netherlands. This is also why we want to make clear that we do not sell 4-MMC.
