Synthetic, or, as they are called, "designer" drugs have become a real scourge of our time. They are synthetic substances designed specifically to circumvent the law, the properties of which are identical to natural drugs, such as opiates or cannabinoids. In Kazakhstan, according to the police, they are not produced, and supplied mainly from Southeast Asia, and most from China. There are many foreign websites, where it is possible to order a pre-payment of goods through electronic payment systems. To deal with this is very difficult, since the "chemists" change the formula at all times, and law enforcement agencies simply do not have time to bring them into the register of banned substances.
