Tomorrow’s Derbyshire Times leads with news on the tragic death of talented young musician Aidan Karpenko – who lost his life after taking one pill ordered online to cure his anxiety.
Aidan, 19, of Chesterfield Road, Holmewood, was found dead hours after childhood friend Jamie Stone gave him a single Etizolam pill he had bought on the internet.
Etizolam is used as a medicine in Japan and India to treat anxiety, insomnia and panic attacks. The drug is not licensed as a medicine in the UK – although it is not classed as an illegal substance.
Chesterfield-based drugs support group Spoda has sounded a warning about the dangers of Etizolam and other psychoactive substances – otherwise known as ‘legal highs’.
