The European Commission today proposed to strengthen the European Union’s ability to respond to ‘legal highs’ – new psychoactive substances used as alternatives to illicit drugs such as cocaine and ecstasy.
Study shows that the economic crisis is expected to have an impact on the drugs market.
What are the policies and approaches accross the EU to the so called legal highs?
The Civil Society Forum on Drugs (CSF) meets at least once a year and serves as a platform for informal exchanges of views and information between the Commission and civil society organisations.
In 2013, 40 organisations became members of the Civil Society Forum for a two year period and the first plenary meeting took place on 24-25 June.
