"Gains made in tackling global use of cocaine and heroin are being offset by rising consumption of synthetic and prescription drugs, the UN says. In its annual report, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said that in Europe, seizures of new psychoactive drugs had been growing. A number of new synthetic compounds have emerged, the agency said. These were commonly marketed as 'legal' substitutes for drugs like cocaine or ecstasy, it said."
