New Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) Continue to Hit the Streets


The headlines are full of alarming & horrific stories—assaults on police officers, violence, suicides, ER visits, psychosis—all attributed to individuals under the influence of the latest round of NPS, or so-called “legal highs.” The rapid turnover of the compounds found in designer drugs challenges the analytical capabilities of most labs, frustrating attempts at deterrence and detection, while encouraging the growth of the market. Designer drug test results may be the key piece of evidence that allows the reliable certification of a death, or explains a subject’s behavior in a medical or criminal case. As a result, consider testing for the newest compounds as standard practice.
