NPS Substance Groups

Source: https://www.unodc.org/LSS/SubstanceGroup/GroupsDashboard?testType=NPS


So the United Nations classify NPS into:

  • Aminoindanes
  • PCP-type substances
  • Phenylamines
  • Piperazines
  • Plant Based Substances like Kratom (an Opiate)
  • Synthetic Cannabinoids
  • Synthetic Cathinones,
  • Tryptamines
  • Various other substances like Halluzinogenes, Opiates, Sedatives / Hypnotics and Stimulants like Amphetamines

The ice cream parlor in my block offers a smaller variety of ice cream flavors… Just saying….


The EU Drug Markets Report 2019 published by EMCDDA and Europol in Lisbon on November 2019 mentions the term “NPS” 164 times within 220 pages, even beating the word “Methamphetamine” which is mentioned 163 times. So NPS are considered a serious concern, no doubt about that. The word “heroin” is mentioned 407 times, by the way, and “cocaine” even 655 times.

  • Champ’s Legals.co UK – Rise and Fall
  • Deaths directly related to NPS consumption are on the rise
  • British newspapers are filled with articles about a new “horror” drug called MDPV. It is the active ingredient in many so-called “bath salts”.
  • UK Cathinone ban and how other countries reacted to the rise of NPS substances
  • The big three become scheduled pretty much everywhere, first replacements are disappointing (NRG1, Naphyrone)
  • In some years, more than a hundred new NPS had being discovered in Europe alone. Europe improves drug monitoring and risk assessment, EMDDCA and Europol join forces.
  • The China ban list gets longer and longer
  • Benzo Fury Hype coming from the UK
  • Kratom
  • 2009: Raging reviews for the new Krypton smoking blend. It turns out that it contained AH-7921, which is an opiate.
  • Research Group Netherlands expand until they get arrested.
  • Operation Dryer, the end of ARC/RS/SI. The scene is shocked. Especially Dutch vendors turn out to be not able to read simple articles in newspapers and start shitting their pants.
  • Germany decides to not ban single substances anymore. They deliver the probably most advanced law on controlling drugs ever. They ban whole substance groups and any substances that share properties which are typical for NPS.
  • The Polish scene and their government’s battle against “afterburners”.
  • Chinese labs flood Europe and the USA with dozens of cheap but highly addictive Fentanyl analogues.
  • 2019: China finally puts a ban on all Fentanyl related substances

  • To make as much money as possible, before the ship will finally sink, Dutch RC vendors The Real RC, RareChems and Chemical-Collective start shipping Schedule I drugs to the USA and to the UK. No way in hell that this could be legal in any way. It’s like they would have started shipping Heroine to these countries, Heroine is also a Schedule I drug.
  • 2020: Dutch labs, wholesalers and some shops announce to abandon their business or announce relocating to other countries. A first draft of the upcoming ban on NPS substance groups in the Netherlands was released. RareChems make clear that they will rather destroy their stock than lowering prices for a final sale.
  • Rechemco seem to concentrate more and more on selling Generic drugs. They already offer everything from Antidepressants to HIV-medication.

  1. 4f-mph looks like it could be easily turned into a fentalogue or similar like compound. Stims and Seds aren’t far off on chemistry when you look at the synthetic route to them.
