According to the statistical data of the Forensic Main Division of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia, more than 90% decrease in consuming new psychoactive substances is indicated in the period of June-December of 2014, in comparison to the similar period of 2013. Furthermore, in recent months the import of so-called “Bio Drugs” across the border crossing points practically has not occurred. The impressive reduction tendency in consuming so-called “Bio Drugs” was discussed during the Eighth Meeting of the State Commission Supporting Suppression of Distributing New Psychoactive Substances, held at the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia.

The Commission Members highlighted that the significant decrease in illicit traffic in new psychoactive substances is the result of the complex state drug policy, inter alia covering timely legislative amendments, effective implementation of the legislation, permanent monitoring of the situation and coordinated work of the agencies. Preventive measures should be particularly highlighted, among which a wide-spread anti-drug campaign “No to Bio Drugs – Let’s Change the Attitude Together” conducted by the MIA is especially noteworthy.
