Latvian authorities apply temporary restriction on new psychoactive substance
Centre for Disease Prevention and Control has established a temporary restriction on yet another dangerous psychoactive substance – NDTDI. This substance is similar to LSD. Using it can cause serious damage to a person’s health and put at risk social safety.
The restriction will come into force on Tuesday, 7 March. The temporary restriction is set for 12 months and it applies to private and legal persons that manufacture, procure, store, transport, order or distribute the aforementioned substance or products that contain it, SPKC notes.
Information about the identification of NDTDI as dangerous substance was received by Latvian authorities in the early warning system from Slovenia.
SPKC reminds that NDTDI and its containing products have to be handed over to State Police within three work days after the restriction comes into force. Production, procurement, storage, transportation and distribution of new psychoactive substances carries criminal liability – deprivation of freedom of up to two years, community service or fine with added police monitoring.
