Recreational so-called “designer drugs” are being produced faster and in growing numbers across the world according to the Vienna-based International Narcotics Control Board (INCB).  Drug traffickers have become increasingly sophisticated and have produced legal drugs by modifying the molecular structure of illegal substances.  In Europe, 16 new designer drugs are being monitored, in Japan the number is as high as 51.
Anne Thomas has been speaking to Hamid Ghodse, the President of INCB in Vienna.

The INCB is an independent body of experts working with the United Nations on narcotics issues.
