Bulgaria: Fancy Recreational Drugs Thrive in Bulgaria's Sofia Image by

Bulgarian customs have detained over 5 kg of so-called designer drugs at Sofia Airport over the last few days.

Designer drugs come in unusual shapes, forms or packages, or are made such as to circumvent drug laws.

As a poor example, a shipment from China labeled to contain an anticorrosive was found to contain drugs.

Another more typical example was a shipment from Belgium synthetic cannabis disguised as substances for aroma therapy. Similarly, a shipment from the Netherlands disguised GBL as liquid soap.

Supplies for aroma therapy, aromatic salts and liquid soaps are classic ways to mask recreational drugs and have been reported to be frequently used around Sofia.

Customs agents at the Sofia Airport have also detained cookies and other sweets containing drugs.
