MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. All smoking mixtures must be legally prohibited, the chief of the psychotherapy and rehabilitation department of the National Narcology Research Centre, Tatyana Agibalova, told ITAR-TASS in an interview on Friday.
“It is a very grave and complicated situation for medics and for society,” she said. “A special awareness campaign must be held among youth to persuade them from using any mixtures at all. They should know that any psychoactive substance deals a powerful blow on the human brain.”
Agibalova said that patients who use spices suffer from grave mental disorders.
Asked about the possibility of testing teenagers for drugs the specialist explained that not all such psychoactive substances could be identified in the human body.
“Far from all of them, because the chemical laboratories and test systems fall behind the emergence of new drugs,” Agibalova acknowledged. “New narcotics are made faster than means of their identification, but it is just a question of time. Once there is the drug, there will surely be a way of identifying it.”
Agibalova is emphatically for testing teenagers.
“It is better to know the truth as soon as possible. My medical practice shows that a teenager may take drugs for a whole year while the family may be utterly ignorant of that,” she said.
Of late, a number of Russia’s regions saw massive poisonings with smoking mixtures. Twenty died and hundreds of others were harmed.
