Drugs, Key Data 2013
OFDT, 8 p.
The purpose of this publication is to periodically collect the most recent and most relevant key quantitative indicators of drug use, whether illegal substances, tobacco, alcohol or psychotropic medicines. These data constitute a common foundation of knowledge on which public authority actions are based, coordinated by the French Interministerial Mission for the Fight against Drugs and Drug Addiction (MILDT) placed under the authority of the Prime Minister.
This document, prepared by the French Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (OFDT), relies on its own research as well as the work of other institutions. First and foremost, it summarises for the main substances the levels of use observed in the French population as a whole. Then, it provides detailed information on use, treatment, health and social consequences as well as trafficking data per product. When possible, trends in these areas are provided.
