The study kicked off with data collection and a literature review in September 2014 and culminated in an expert meeting in Lisbon from 30–31 October.
Insights were provided from the fields of IT, research, monitoring and law enforcement and from the perspectives of Internet and drug users.
A special focus was placed on:
* The online sale of new psychoactive substances (NPS) and medicinal products for illicit use;
* The role of social media and apps;
* Drug sales on the ‘deep web’ (inaccessible via standard web browsers).
