Central Asia Synthetic Drug Situation Assessment 2017


This report analyses recent trends and developments of the synthetic drugs market in Central Asia, comprising both amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) and new psychoactive substances (NPS). Whereas ATS have been a feature of drug markets in Central Asia for some years, NPS have also recently emerged in the region. Production, use and seizure data presented in this report points to a relatively small market for synthetic drugs in the region as opposed to that for cannabis, opium or heroin.
