drogheThe Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee decided on Thursday to open the negotiations on the legislative files on new psychoactive substances and on criminal acts and penalties in the field of illicit drug trafficking. The three-way talks between the Parliament, the Council and the Commission (trialogues) will start after the Council reaches a general approach on these files.
The proposed rules aim to ensure that harmful psychoactive substances, known as “legal highs”, are withdrawn rapidly from the EU market. In their first reading vote on 17 April 2014, MEPs sought to protect the health and safety of young people from these drugs, whilst ensuring that trade in lower risk substances for industrial and commercial uses is not hindered. Criminals who breach the ban on the most harmful substances could face up to ten years in jail. Previous press release. The mandate for the negotiations correspond to the amendments adopted in plenary during the previous term, as reconfirmed by the Civil Liberties Committee in its decision to resume its “unfinished business” (rule 229 of the EP Rules of Procedure).The decision by the committee to enter into negotiations with the Council and the Commission in view of an agreement also includes a decision on the composition of the EP negotiating teams.Mandate on new psychoactive substances and on criminal acts and penalties in the field of illicit drug trafficking
