Safeguarding Communities Against Nitazenes

This week on Century of Lies: The Next Big Thing. Nitazenes are a class of synthetic opioids, some of which are stronger than fentanyl, which are starting to show up in the unregulated drug markets in the US and the EU. On February 22, Ireland’s Health Service Executive held a webinar to look at the issue, entitled Safeguarding Communities Against Nitazenes. On this edition of Century we hear from Nicki Killeen, Project Manager for Emerging Drug Trends with the HSE National Social Inclusion Office, and Rachel Christie, Principal Scientific Analyst in the Action on New Drugs Sector of the European Monitoring Center on Drugs and Drug Addiction.
