TDDA have the expertise to test for both synthetic cannabis and synthetic cathinones or “bath salts”. Both these compounds offer a real risk in the workplace due to how they are made and their unpredictable effects on the user.
What are synthetic drugs?
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) over 200 new psychoactive substances ‘synthetic drugs’ have been identified on the global markets since 2009. Most prevalent are the synthetic cannabis (cannabinoids) and ‘bath salt’ (synthetic cathinone) products. The legal party pill and illicit drug market has seen the appearance of literally dozens of different synthetic cannabis and cathinone type products often presented as legal alternative to cannabis and Ecstasy. The increased risk posed by these substances relates not only to the increased potency of these drugs but also their association with being undetectable with routine drug testing systems.
