Does Meow Meow Show Up on a Drug Test?

Meow Meow is a very powerful stimulant drug. More commonly known as Mephedrone, this drug is closely related in its effects to drugs such as ecstasy and speed (amphetamines). As well as being known as Meow Meow, Mephedrone is also called by street names such as MCat, Mieow, Meph, MCAT and 4MMC. Another popular names for Mephedrone is Bath Salts.

Meow Meow is probably the best known of the many ‘legal highs’ that have risen to prominence in the media in recent years. It is a drug that can be found in the form of pills, powder, or liquid. First seen in the UK in 2004, the drug is now illegal to use in this and many many other countries. In the UK, it is a class B drug.

Is There a Drug Test for Meow Meow?

As far as we are aware, there is no current drug testing kits for Meow Meow on the market. We are often asked if we can supply a drug testing kit for Mephedrone, but at present this is not possible to detect the drug itself, or it metabolites, in either urine, saliva or blood.

Some websites selling drug testing kits claim that a methamphetamine drug test will also detect mephedrone. This is simply not the case. The two drugs are not similar in their chemical structure, so if you test for mephedrone using a methamphetamine drug test, the result will be negative.

There are also claims that methamphetamine is often mixed with mephedrone to create the product we see in the UK as Meow Meow, validating the use of a meth test as a drug test for Meow Meow. However these claims are just theory and not fact.

Since, Meow Meow was made illegal in many countries, new formulations have appeared in an attempt to circumvent the law. Once again, there is no proof that these chemicals contain methamphetamine, so anybody using a meth test for Meow Meow drug testing will not get a reliable result.

Meow Meow Drug Swab Test

Although Mephedrone cannot be detected by a drug test, it can be detected by a presumptive drug test kit. This is the type of drug test kit that is used by police to identify suspect powders and substances. Zoom Testing can supply a meow meow drug testing kit that will identify mephedrone residue.

Our laboratory drug swab kits will also work as a drug test for mephedrone. As well as Meow Meow, any other drugs identified by the swab will also appear in the laboratory results.
