The Finnish Customs has over the past six months confiscated over 3.5 kilos of the extremely dangerous designer drug alpha-PVP, an amount enough for tens of thousands of doses. Previously, only small batches of the new drug have been found in Finland. The Finnish Customs confiscated six 150—1,000 gram shipments of alpha-PVP last year and three 40—500 gram shipments thus far this year.
