The Global Illicit Drug Trends presents statistics on production, trafficking and consumption of illicit drugs worldwide. These statistics are supplemented by analysis, which focuses on the issue of Clandestine Synthetic Drugs. 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.



Understanding clandestine synthetic drugs

Trends in drug abuse frequently follow a cycle whereby individual drugs or consumption patterns re-emerge at different times and/or in different regions. Understanding those trends and their underlying dynamics can therefore contribute to improving policy responses and early reactions to the repetition of previously known problems.
