2006 IDRS reports now available

 Direct from NDARC’s Paul Dillon:

 “The Illicit Drug Reporting System (IDRS) and the Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS, formerly known as the PDI) monitor the price, purity and availability and patterns of use of illicit drugs, as well as acting as an early warning system for emerging markets.

The findings of these two important monitoring projects are presented each year at the annual National Drug Trends Conference. Last year they were presented in Cairns, along with bulletins summarizing the findings. These bulletins can be found at the following weblink:
