The seizure of a multi-kilogram shipment of "ecstasy" (MDMA) in powder form earlier this year was unusual for Uruguay, but it did not yet ring alarm bells for the Early Warning System in Montevideo.

However, "When reports of young people suffering from an "ecstasy" overdose kept coming in from hospitals, we got really worried," said Héctor Suarez, who coordinates the system in Uruguay.

With a view to countering this challenge in Latin America and the Caribbean, a drug policy workshop was recently held in Montevideo, Uruguay. Speaking on behalf of the Office, Martin Raithelhuber said: "UNODC supports laboratories in Latin America and the Caribbean to ensure health-relevant information is available for early warning on drugs. This directly contributes to reducing health risks."
