1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
    PLEASE HELP

EMCDDA - Methamphetamine: A European Union perspective in the global context

EMCDDA - Methamphetamine: A European Union perspective in the global context

  1. YIPMAN
    Introduction

    This publication is the first in a series dedicated to prevalent illicit synthetic stimulant drugs, also known as amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS). The ATS category is made up of two groups of substances:

    the ‘amphetamines’, which includes amphetamine, methamphetamine and related substances such as fenetylline, methylphenidate, phenmetrazine, cathinone, etc.;

    the ‘ecstasy-type’ drugs (MDMA and its close relatives MDA and MDEA).

    This study focuses on the supply and use of methamphetamine in Europe, set in a global context. Amphetamine and ecstasy will be addressed in future publications in the series.
