Australia leads world in ecstasy use

Australia leads world in ecstasy use
April 22, 2005

A national drug report released today has revealed that Australians are the largest per capita users of ecstasy in the world.

The Australian Crime Commission's (ACC) 2003-2004 report says cannabis is still the most popular drug.

"Cannabis remains the widely-used and available drug in Australia," ACC chief Alastair Milroy said.

But Mr Milroy says the figures on ecstasy remain the biggest concern.

"There is a continued concern regarding the production and demand of amphetamine-type stimulants, MDMA," he said.

"Ecstasy remains a dominant form of amphetamine that is being produced, imported and used in Australia."

The report also shows the seizure of more than 11 tonnes of illicit drugs - an increase of two tonnes on the previous year.

Intelligence director Kevin Kitson says syndicates adapt production methods to meet demand, particularly for marijuana.

"The support suggests there is a much greater emphasis on hydroponics but one of the features of the drug market is it's dynamic," he said.

"The organised crime area, which is the main focus of the ACC, will move its production technique according to what will make if the greatest profit."

In other developments:

Australian Federal Police have arrested four people for allegedly importing $18 million worth of ecstasy tablets. (Full Story)
