Resource Type: Drug Trends Bulletins

The Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS) is a national drug monitoring system intended to identify emerging trends of local and national concern in illicit drug markets, and form part of Drug Trends.  

Australian population data suggests an increase of cocaine use and The World Drug Report 2022 has noted a steady increase in seizures of cocaine internationally between 2016 and 2020. Despite the low availability of cocaine in Tasmania, this bulletin aims to summarise changes in cocaine use and indicators of health harms and service use in Tasmania.
