Abstract

The Authors would like to highlight an aspect that was overlooked in literature: the type of concealed drugs. The authors described accurately only the internal transportation of the most common illegal drugs, such as heroin, cocaine (both in liquid and solid forms), marijuana, hashish, and amphetamine. We would like to emphasize the recent trend of transportation of other illegal drugs, such as ecstasy and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), as well as a number of legal substances, such as prescription opioids, psychotropic therapeutic agents (benzodiazepines and oxycodone), and anesthetics, such as lidocaine.
