Captagon is a brand name for a synthetic stimulant drug known as fenethylline. It is classified as an amphetamine and is a combination of amphetamine and theophylline. Fenethylline was initially developed in the 1960s as a medication to treat various conditions, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. However, it was later withdrawn from medical use in most countries due to its potential for abuse and addiction.Syria has been linked to the illegal production and trafficking of Captagon in recent years. The country plays a significant role in the illicit production of this drug for a few reasons:
  1. War and Instability: The ongoing conflict and instability in Syria have created an environment where illegal activities, including drug production, can thrive. The war has disrupted law enforcement and regulatory agencies, making it easier for criminal networks to operate.
  2. Access to Precursor Chemicals: Syria is located in a region where precursor chemicals, such as pseudoephedrine, are more readily available, which are essential for the production of Captagon. These chemicals can be diverted from legitimate sources or smuggled into the country.
  3. Profits for Armed Groups: Some armed groups involved in the conflict in Syria have been reported to be involved in the production and trafficking of Captagon as a means to fund their activities. The illegal drug trade can provide a significant source of income in a war-torn region.
  4. Global Distribution: Captagon, produced in Syria, is often trafficked to various parts of the world, including the Middle East and Europe. It has gained popularity among users for its stimulant effects and is sometimes referred to as the "jihadist drug."
