HOW COMMON IS METHAMPHETAMINE?
Australia has the highest use of methamphetamine in the English-speaking world or indeed almost any other country. According to the 2013 National Drug Strategy Household Survey, about 1.3 million Australians, an astonishing 7 percent of the population, have used methamphetamine and 400,000 (or just over 2 percent of all Australians) have done so in the last 12 months. In comparison, only 0.4 percent of Americans say they have used the drug, according to the 2012 U.S. National Survey on Drug Use and Health. (‘Time.com’)
CLANDESTINE METH LABS
The Illicit Drug Data Report 2015–16, released today, shows that while the number of clandestine laboratories (‘clan labs’) detected nationally continued to decrease this reporting period, Queensland accounted for 40.7 per cent of labs detected across the nation.
“Nationally, around two-thirds of the clan labs detected in 2015–16 were in residential locations, posing significant risks to surrounding communities as they are used to covertly manufacture illicit drugs or their precursors, with many of the chemicals used both hazardous and corrosive in nature.” (ACIC media release – 30 June 2017) The Illicit Drug Data Report 2015–16 is available online at www.acic.gov.au
The numbers of clan (clandestine) labs discovered in Queensland is staggering until you realise those numbers account for approximately 10% of the real number of labs operating in Queensland with 90% remaining undiscovered.
