Law aimed at countering circulation of new psychoactive substances

February 4, 2015

Vladimir Putin signed Federal Law On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation.

The Federal Law is aimed at improving Russia’s legislation that regulates issues of countering the circulation of new potentially dangerous psychoactive substances.

With this aim in view, the new Federal Law amends the Federal Law On Narcotic Substances and Psychotropic Substances to establish the circulation procedure for new potentially hazardous natural or synthetic psychoactive substances, banning the use and propaganda of such substances.

Also, the Federal Law introduces administrative liability for the use of potentially dangerous psychoactive substances and inducing minors into using them, and criminal liability for illegal circulation of new potentially hazardous psychoactive substances.
