Nouveaux produits de synthèse – Synthèse des connaissances, www.ofdt.fr, 2018

Nouveaux produits de synthèse - Synthèse des connaissances Copyright © Observatoire Français des Drogues et des Toxicomanies, mai 2018 https://www.drogues.gouv.fr/publication/nouvelles-substances-psychoactives-un-guide-services-durgences   Présentation L’abréviation NPS est généralement utilisée en France en référence aux Nouveaux Produits de synthèse. Ils désignent un éventail très hétérogène de substances qui imitent les effets de différents produits illicites (ecstasy, amphétamines, cocaïne, cannabis, etc.).

Cette spécificité leur permet, au moins à court terme, de contourner la législation sur les stupéfiants ; certains sont classés, d’autres n’ont pas de statut juridique clair. Généralement achetés sur Internet, les NPS sont connus soit par leurs noms [...]
