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.
