Finland Drug Laws & Policy
DETAILS
In Finland, the "lääkeaineluettelo" is a list of controlled (in some cases medicinal) drugs that are not yet in the list of illicit substances (= classical drugs). The reason why they are here and not in the actual drug list is that moving substances to "lääkeaineluettelo" is much faster and easier than moving them to the list of illicit drugs.

Importing any of the drugs on the "lääkeaineluettelo" into Finland is illegal. If caught in customs, the controlled substances are confiscated and possibly some sort of fine is given, unless the amount is considerable, in which case it can be a criminal offense. Sale of these controlled substances are similarly handled, small amounts are confiscated, large amounts might lead to more serious offense.
