More types of drugs and their derivatives are available in the country than ever before, reported the Finnish language newspaper Savon Sanomat. 
 
According to the EU Drugs Agency and Finnish Customs, new drugs are being identified at about a hundred per year.
 
According to the police, the new drugs have come in alongside the old and have not replaced them. The use of traditional drugs like cocaine has increased sharply, the newspaper reported.
 
One problem is the fact that drugs are not always what they claim to be, said the police. For example, a drug identified as ecstasy might actually be amphetamine.
 
According to Sergeant Jari Kyllönen from the Helsinki Police Department, the increase in drug selection has resulted in unpredictable composition and varying strengths.
