Explosion of New Drugs in Europe and Norway

According to Norwegian News Agency -ANBā€™s report, more than 25 new drugs have found their way to Norway this year.

This is the largest number ever reported in a single year, an increase from 24 in 2009.Ā 

National Institute of Drug Abuse (SIRUS) does not expect a decline in the following year. A synthetic cannabis, called cathinones (mephedrone, MDPV), accounts for most of the increase.

Also, the annual report by the European Drug Agency describes a marked change in the European cannabis market. The general trend is that the imported drug is now being replaced by products grown within the host countriesā€™ borders. 29 of the 30 European countries report to the EU drugs agency that there is a certain cultivation of marijuana and hashish.Ā
