2CB, the drug the six teenagers in Glastonbury thought they were taking, is one of dozens of "designer" drugs on the illegal drugs market.
The drug is said to have a similar effect to ecstasy (MDMA), and is often sold by dealers masquerading as the more popular drug. It can give users stomach cramps, flatulence and diarrhoea.
It is very difficult to tell the difference between a low and high dose of a drug just by looking at a tablet or powder.
Fatalities have been reported among people using contaminated batches of 2CB or drugs sold as 2CB that turned out to be other compounds.
These include para-Methoxyamphetamine (PMA) and Bromo-DragonFLY (BDF).
In October 2009, a batch of BDF was distributed as the related compound 2C-B-FLY, which is around 20 times less potent than BDF by weight. This mistake is believed to have contributed to several lethal overdoses and additional hospitalizations.
Many of these drugs are made in China, along with "legal highs", chemicals that can be just as dangerous, but because of their molecular make up they are not illegal.
