It is a headache for politicians right across Europe: how to keep up with the rise in the use of legal highs or psychoactive substances. And how do authorities make sure that these imitations of illicit drugs do not pose a serious risk to people’s health?

Some countries are tough on the issue, others are more relaxed. Meanwhile, Brussels has announced proposals for regulations on new drugs appearing across Europe.

Sales are often over the internet, but it is even possible to buy in specialised shops. That is the case in Latvia, just one example of a nation attempting to strike the right balance.
