State Duma Committee approves blocking websites with information on psychedelic drugs
MOSCOW, October 10 (RAPSI) - The State Duma Committee on Information Policy has recommended that the lower house adopt in the first reading a government bill on restriction of access to websites containing information about new potentially dangerous psychoactive substances, RIA Novosti reported on Monday.
The initiative was submitted to the State Duma in April.
Under the bill, out-of-court blocking will apply in Russia to websites publishing information about methods of creation, production, use and sales locations of new psychedelic drugs expected to be dangerous to health and life including synthetic cannabinoids (“spice”), stimulants (“salts”), Utopiates, and their precursors.
The draft law is aimed to improve efficiency of countering action against distribution of information about new species of hallucinogenic drugs.
