The Dutch Ministry of Health and the Medicines Authority IGZ have informed the Ministry of Justice that they now consider Mephedrone as an unregistered medicine.
Sales or possession of unregistered medicines are punishable with 6 years jailtime or €45.000 fine.
W. Best, Chief of the Medicines Authority confirmed this yesterday by email, to the Smartshop / Headshop branche organisation VLOS.
VLOS has informed all Dutch headshops and smartshops about this change in the law.
Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
