PRESS RELEASE: Strong partnership for greater road safety

Securetec Newsletter - September 2021

The goal is simple – reduce road deaths

70 per day. That’s the average daily number of road deaths in Europe right now. And governments and dedicated non-governmental organisations are using various approaches to reduce this figure further. For example, the “European Roads Policing Network”, or Roadpol for short, and LPH, the State Institute for Preventative Action are running road safety campaigns. Securetec is a Roadpol partner and recently attended the LPH Expert Meeting.

DrugWipe® rapid drug tests: reliable evidence of methamphetamine

Securetec Newsletter - May 2021

Working mums, sportspeople, partygoers – all united in the wish to appear infinitely capable. Methamphetamine seems to grant that wish. A physical and mental high that can last for days displaces the subsequent low, the risky side effects and the long-term consequences.

New Psychoactive Substances

Securetec Newsletter - July 2021

They never quite made the big time. When the first psychoactive substances (NPS for short) appeared on the market at the turn of the century, many people feared that they would flood the market and dazzle consumers. These drugs, often sold as “bath salts”, “air freshener” or “plant food”, were legal and relatively inexpensive. However, this assumption proved false. The sale and consumption of NPS has stagnated at a low level and, in some cases, even declined.

The Magic Mushroom Revival

Securetec Newsletter - December 2020

While magic mushrooms cannot be considered genuine competition for LSD, they enthral their devotees with a similar effect. Psychoactive mushrooms are currently enjoying increasing popularity. Despite the significant risks associated with their consumption, uncertainty surrounding long-term negative effects and the fact that they are illegal in most countries, the number of their advocates is rising, albeit at a low level. The overall prevalence of LSD and magic mushrooms is less than 1% in the EU.
