The main aims of this study were three-fold: to describe characteristics of users and consumption patterns among different types of users of cannabis, ecstasy, amphetamines, cocaine and heroin; secondly, to describe the availability of drugs to the different types of users; and thirdly, to make estimates of the amount of drugs consumed - by user type and in total - in the seven sample EU Member States: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and England & Wales. In Spring 2012 a web survey was carried out in the seven countries to collect data on these topics for the four drugs under study. For the Czech Republic, amphetamine in this report refers to methamphetamine.
