EGA ppl- I can't find the ACTINOS links from Dr David Caldicott's EGA presentation. Anyone have them? The WEDINOS pages are here: http://wedinos.org/ From WEDINOS: New Psychoactive Substances"substances of abuse, either in a pure form or a preparation, that are not controlled by the 1961 Convention on Narcotic Drugs or the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances, but which may pose a public health threat” Information from a range of sources in the UK and Europe indicate that some users of new psychoactive substances (NPS) are at risk of a number of serious adverse effects. Principally these include the direct or acute physical, psychological and behavioural effects following use, as well as the potential for increased engagement with criminal justice services. Longer term, or chronic effects are, in the main, poorly evidenced. This project is designed to inform both. Both are great projects. The ACTINOS one is the Australian version. Can't remember where it is at right now My google-fu is failing, and the obvious .org/ .com links don't get me anywhere. Can't find either via FB.
