EU Drug Markets Report
The latest EU Drug Markets Report, from the EMCDDA and Europol (April 2016), provides a unique insight into the operations of illicit drug markets in the EU and assesses their ramifications for society. The report reviews the markets for cannabis, heroin, cocaine, amphetamine, methamphetamine, MDMA and new psychoactive substances and presents concrete action points to inform policy development at EU and national level. The extensive 188-page In-depth Analysis (EN), covers trends along the supply chain from production and trafficking to marketing, distribution and consumption. It is accompanied by a Strategic Overview (ES, DE, EN, FR, PT), providing a summary of key findings as well as additional supporting material. These products combine the EMCDDA’s drug monitoring and analytical capacity with Europol’s operational intelligence on trends in organised crime.
