Sorry for bad english.
It says there are legal drugs, since they are not classified as drugs neither are they classified dangerous to ones health. They say that the trade with drugs on internet increased (but in reality they decreased because a big actor disappeared). Customs have found cannabis, ecstasy, cocaine and drugs that are not yet classified as drugs or dangerous to ones health. Two of these drugs are spice and kratom. Lars Hansson at the customs says that he sees spice and kratom continuously flowing into the country. He claims there is tremendous incrase of use of these substances. Police and customs can yet do nothing to stop this flow of drugs into the nation. Spice and Kratom are sold on websites and discussed in forums. Pharmacist Peter Hulten at the National Poisson Information Central explains that it is very dangerous to buy these substances, since one cannot know what they contain and the risk to death is very high. The National Poisson Information Central had 139 calls during 2006 and 246 calls during 2007, which is an increase of 80% of calls. Usually it is youth and young adults that call when they feel ill, dizzy and raised heart beat. Since one cannot know what the bags contain, it is difficult to give the correct information to the kids, the personell have to assume they have taken what is written on the bags and usually there is very little information about the new substances.
The government is looking at the problem. Jan Pennlöv explains that they wish to be able to to classify drugs on-the-fly. There are suggestions that police and customs should be able to act immediately, even when the substances are not classified. Jan Pennlöv does not believe in an analog act, since the courts need to be sure it is illegal drugs.
