The rapid increase in new psychoactive substance use is a major challenge to both policy makers and service providers all over the European Union. The European Commission is preparing a new EU-wide regulation of these drugs in order to facilitate rapid policy response and harmonize national laws.  

The CSF has decided to give an input to this ongoing discussions by producing a position paper to be presented at the December anticipated joint meeting of the Civil Society Forum on Drugs and the Horizontal Working Party on Drugs (HDG).   

We ask you to complete a questionnaire by April 30, 2015. Your responses are vital for us to prepare an adequate presentation for the EU member states. 

This questionnaire was prepared in consultation with the thematic task force formed from the members of the Civil Society Forum.
