EU drugs agency to launch European Drug Report 2014

The EU drugs agency (EMCDDA) will be presenting its annual overview of the European drug situation on 27 May in a multilingual, multimedia information package focusing on today’s rapidly shifting drug phenomenon.

Central to the package is the European Drug Report 2014: Trends and developments (in print and online in 23 languages), summarising the latest trends across the 28 EU Member States, Turkey and Norway. This top-level analysis explores: drug supply; drug use and drug-related problems; health and social responses to drug problems; and drug policies.

Accompanying the report will be Perspectives on drugs (PODs), online interactive analyses providing insights into six topical issues (including cannabis markets in Europe and Internet-based drug treatment). The information package will be completed by the European Drug Report: Data and statistics and Country overviews offering national-level data and analyses.

A tablet version, including interactive maps and graphics, will be available in English. Audiovisual material will also be on offer.
