Gov’t accused of giving ‘Dream Shops’ the delay to clear drug stocks

The International Anti-drug and Human Rights Centre (CIADO) accused the Government yesterday that through the respite of ten days given to the traders of ethno-botanical plants to destroy the stocks, it actually stimulates the sales until these prohibited products are exhausted. “The ethno-botanical plant shops have introduced discounts between 30 per cent and 50 per cent, and promotional offers in order to get rid of the stock, continuing to trade products like special gold, which contains mephedrone” reads a CIADO press release of yesterday, quoted by Agerpres. CIADO mentions that it established these things after it monitored the situation of the trading of ethno-botanical plants, declared illegal through the OUG, in 42 branches. The Government decided last week to ban 36 substances and plants. For the stocks held in the moment when the law went into effect, the Health Ministry gave a transitory deadline, in order that the substances may be destroyed in compliance with the legal provisions.
