EMCDDA explores new dynamics and dimensions of Europe’s drugs problem
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.
