Snapchat drug puts four in hospital

FOUR men have been taken to hospital with symptoms of wild aggression and hysteria after taking a new designer drug called Snapchat.

The small pink and blue pills contain the imprint of the ghost logo for popular social media application Snapchat.

ABC Online reported one man was treated in intensive care and another three treated in the emergency department after taking the drug in Darwin this weekend.

It is the second weekend residents in the city have been hospitalised after taking the drug.

Northern Territory chief medical officer Steven Skov told ABC Online the drug is a class of amphetamine and has warned young people to stay away from the drug.

"They are very aggressive while on this drug and it's also a danger to themselves," he said.
