On 16 August 2017 Reuters reported:
A synthetic psychoactive drug linked to substance abuse in the Middle East and said to be a fund-raising tool and stimulant for Islamist militants is more dangerous than previously thought, scientists said on Wednesday, 16 August. The stimulant, called fenethylline and by its trade name Captagon, is a super-boosted amphetamine, they said, and has unique chemical complexities allowing it to induce potent psychoactive effects far more rapidly than amphetamines alone. ... Scientists ... said Captagon's unique structure and mode of action may explain why it has become so widely abused. They warned its popularity among drug users could spread from the Middle East across the world. Production and trafficking of the drug -- which the Scripps team said is 'very easy to make' -- and counterfeits of it, are reported to be a source of revenue for militant groups in Syria and Iraq.
