Narconon Reveals How Cannabis Cravings Drive European Drug Trends
Date:8/30/2013

(PRWEB) August 30, 2013

A new report from the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction provides a new, overall look at the rates of drug abuse and trafficking across Europe. An examination of that report shows how prominently cannabis figures into current trends.

"While some synthetic cannabinoids are illegal, there are always new substances of this type hitting the market," said Clark Carr, president of Narconon International. "It is impossible for legislative bodies to keep up with this trend. Currently, there is one new psychoactive substance per week being reported to the European early warning system."
