Abstract

Drug markets are dynamic systems that often adapt quickly to demand, competition, or legislation (Krausz et al., 2021). Evidence of this is the adulteration of substances with highly harmful compounds like fentanyl (Palamar et al., 2020), the demand for New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) like 2C-B (Caudevilla-Gálligo et al., 2012), and the emergence of new marketing dynamics like the deep web (Schifano, 2020). While global actions have been implemented to control and regulate the illicit market, these have proven insufficient, leading to the need for transformative drug policies to provide timely and effective responses to this global phenomenon.
