Nearly 100 novel substances that have never been previously used as recreational drugs are identified annually. Most of these are synthetic or designer drugs. While designer drugs are not new – what IS new is the rapid rate new chemicals are showing up on the market and replacing restricted or scheduled ones – and – the availability of information about these chemicals through the internet. This presentation will look at these designer drugs with special attention to the internet and its role in the designer drug explosion of the past few years.
