Abstract

Synthecaine is a slang term that seems to originate from “Synthe-tic” and “Co-caine” and is available from on-line markets as legal cocaine. Web-sources describe synthecaine as a mixture of dimethocaine/camfetamine; the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) report notified dimethocaine and 3-(p-fluorobenzoyloxy)tropane (pFBT). We describe a case of abuse of synthecaine (containing synthetic cannabinoids) identified through the Italian N.E.W.S. of Department for Antidrug Policies - Presidency of the Council of Ministers.
