Warsaw, Poland, Jul. 8 (UPI) -- A new survey suggested Polish students have easy access to a range of illegal drugs with 20 percent admitting to using them, local media reported Thursday.
The survey by the National Bureau for Combating Drug Use was based on interviews with 1,550 students in more than 60 Polish universities.
Around 67 percent of respondents said it was easy to obtain soft drugs such as marijuana. Almost 52 percent of students said it was easy to obtain amphetamines, 40 percent said it was easy to obtain ecstasy and 33 percent said it was easy to get LSD.
Officials say drug use has become an important part of youth culture for many students in a country where drug use was almost unknown under communism, which came to an end in Poland in 1989.

Same here. I'd say that particularly psychedelics are new to the post communistic part of Europe. Here in Latvia the first officially registered case of LSD usage was in 1992 And authorities here still are quite ignorant and uninformed about the hallucinogenic mushrooms. Which is good. I mean - as I have read in countless posts - hunting is dangerous in the US. Cops patrolling around the hunting fields during the season and stuff Nothing like that here. You can pick Your shrooms and proudly walk by the main police station with an open basket (not that I recommend doing that). Police just haven't been alerted about the mushrooms yet i guess. But yeah - psychedelics are becoming more and more popular. And I guess the counterreaction of the authorities is just a matter of time. Currently most attention is centered on fighting production/ditribution of cannabis, meth and heroin.
