An official at the Drug Control Headquarters warned about the arrival of a new generation of psychoactive drugs known as ‘NPS’, with odd names like ‘Mr. Happy,’ ‘Rock,’ etc. Babak Dinparast said the drugs have been around since 1990s. But more recently, instead of artificial substances, some natural ingredients are being used to make them, he said quoted by ISNA. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, abuse of these drugs has almost doubled since 2010.
