Summary Our major finding : We found out that synthetic drugs get through Canadian customs quite easily. Most of them legally. The synopsis of our document is attached with our submission. The story started with a number found in a UN Report that grabbed our attention : 58. It’s the number of new psychoactive substances which entered Canada legally, according to a the 2013 report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes. We were able to find a synthetic drug dealer who’s doing business on internet. It was our most significant source. Our source and others targeted by our story revealed how it is possible to get drugs into Canada by simply using the postal service.
