Press conference by Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC, on the decisive action of the EC against legal highs

Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, gave a press conference on the decisive action of the EC against legal highs.
The EC proposed to strengthen the EU’s ability to respond to "legal highs" – new psychoactive substances used as alternatives to illicit drugs such as cocaine and ecstasy. Under the rules proposed by the EC, harmful psychoactive substances would be withdrawn quickly from the market, without jeopardising their various legitimate industrial and commercial uses.
The proposals followed warnings from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (Emcdda) and Europol about the scale of the problem and a 2011 report which found that the EU’s mechanism for tackling new psychoactive substances needed bolstering.
