Due to the intensive change in the trends of drug use the professionals working with drug users are in the lack of information. Synthetic cannabionids became one of the most frequently used psychoactive substances. The aim of the program was to collect and spread information from professionals and peers about synthetic cannabionid use. They attempted to reach experimental users and those who are considering trying "bio-weed" but also tried to offer help for those who seek support in stopping drug use, and offered information on "bio-weed" for those also who do not consider trying it.One of the biggest motivations behind "bio-weed" use is the lack of perceiption of its dangers, which can result in unwanted legal conflicts and social and/or health disadvantages. Drug users are one of the mostly stigmatized groups in Hungary which results lack of advocacy. By the end of the project the organizers managed to increase the knowledge of the community regarding "bio-weed" and the means of recovery, and contributed to the evidence-based discourse on drug use. In order to to reach the goals the organizers gathered information from professionals and peers, presented it on various media platforms, and connected with many professionals in Hungary, with MÜSZI (community and art space) and with teenagers in the countryside. Media partners were Tilos Radio and Rács FM.
