MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 10,000 websites contain drug recipes. The total number is hundreds of thousands, including blogs and social networks, deputy staff head of the Russian State Anti-Drug Committee Gennady Udovchenko said at the Safe Internet Forum on Tuesday.
About 40% of these resources are located within the Russian segment of the Internet, he said. “The absence of appropriate state control makes the information accessible,” he said. Judging by the number of searches, the interest in information about drugs is mounting, Udovchenko said. The interest in cocaine grew thrice and the interest in heroin doubled in 2010.
“The Internet became a key way for the distribution of synthetic drugs,” he said.
There are about 700,000 drug addicts in Russia officially, but the real number reaches 2.5 million, including 1.5 million young people. The young are the most active users of the Internet, Udovchenko remarked.
There must be a round-the-clock hotline providing consultations to drug addicts and portals providing information about the harm done by the drugs, he said. “Transboundary measures must be taken to fight the dangerous content,” he said.
