What is the article about?

The review demonstrates that new psychoactive substances represent an increasingly popular form of recreational drugs. In recent years, primarily substances from the groups of synthetic cannabinoids, synthetic cathinone, and phenethylamines came to the fore. These synthetic substances pose a significant health risk for users and their early detection, therefore, is desirable.

Can you say a few words about yourself, please?

Chemicke Listy magazine has a long tradition, since 1876. I am very pleased that, under my leadership, it continues to publish plenty of interesting articles.
