MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Health Ministry's chief narcologist Yevgeny Bryun supports the initiative of the Federal Drug Control Service to ban sales of nitrous oxide known as laughing gas.
"I think the FDCS initiative to ban sales of laughing gas is absolutely right," he told reporters on Tuesday.
It is anesthetic. It must not be sold for non-medical purposes, the specialist stressed.
There always is leakage, while there is no strict decision on this, Bryun noted. He hopes the decision will be taken soon, and the subject will be closed.
However, stopping of sales of laughing gas does not mean more intensive activity of drug dealers. In one-two months, something else will appear, Bryun noted.
