Detail

The illicit use of amphetamines, almost exclusively in the form of AMP sulphate powder, is widespread in the UK, but has been declining in recent years. At the same time, MDMA and the use of cocaine have increased. There is a paucity of information about the prevalence of MA use in the UK. What evidence there is suggests consumption of MA in the UK is very limited. However, given the experience of other countries such as the USA where MA misuse has become widespread the ACMD has been asked to review the harms posed by the drug now and the potential for its use to increase in the UK in the future
