CEPOL is pleased to announce that the updated online module on Synthetic Drugs is available on its online learning platform, LEEd.

The Synthetic Drugs module targets law enforcement officials including police, customs and prosecutors engaged in fighting drug crime, in particular the production, smuggling and selling of synthetic drugs. It introduces the main types of synthetic drugs, NPS and related chemicals, and describes their production, trafficking and availability on the internet/darknet. It also covers the investigation of cases.

With the expert input from our colleagues from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), all external links in the module now lead you to the latest and updated versions of important online resources for law enforcement authorities and judicial officers in the joint effort to combat synthetic drugs:

  • European Drug Report 2021;
  • EU Drug Markets: In-depth analysis 2022 (cocaine and methamphetamine modules);
  • Consolidated Regulation (EC) No 1920/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 on the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (recast);
  • Latest developments in the area of drug precursor control in the EU;
  • Latest updates on drug prices, purity and potency;
  • EU Drugs Strategy 2021-2025;
