Global Illicit Drug Trends 2001

The Global Illicit Drug Trends presents statistics on production, trafficking and consumption of illicit drugs worldwide.

The discussion includes the phenomenon of synthetic drugs, its intrinsic characteristics and some of its likely future developments. The second special theme of this year's report concentrates on Main Centres of Illicit Opium Production, and tries to explain why production has reached such high levels in Afghanistan and Myanmar. Numerous tables, graphs and maps enrich the report.
